If I Were You is the infectious first single and title track from Chris Hurn’s long awaited second album due for release in April 2017.
It’s been five years since the young New Zealander’s debut, Too Busy Dreamin’ in 2011, which spawned a SoundCloud hit with the song Whatcha Got (500,000 plays) leading to a publishing deal and a license by Swatch for a global ad campaign. Since then Hurn has been busy writing scores for film, finishing his university studies, playing in his band and recently relocating to Kuala Lumpur.
The forthcoming new album continues with the folk pop style evident on the previous release but is a more polished affair full of catchy hooks and well crafted writing showcasing the artist’s further maturation and development as a songwriter and performer.
The music video was filmed in Auckland by acclaimed director Tim van Dammen.
