[PREMIERE] Axel Mansoor – Father Time

Axel Mansoor is back, but this time with a beautiful acoustic twist. “Father Time” is the first single off of Axel’s upcoming acoustic EP “Somerset” which will feature new acoustic songs and stripped-down versions of previously releases songs. Axel sounds right at home in this folky (Jack Johnson-esue) acoustic place and this song is sure to strike a personal chord for anyone who feels like life is moving too fast. Already an immensely talented vocalist, this presentation of Axel’s voice gives him a whole new depth with a powerful yet raw tenderness. Axel Mansoor’s debut in 2017 found his first single “Wasted My Love” with over a million streams, his music video for “Talk To Me” (which premiered on Buzzfeed’s Snapchat Discover) accumulated 4 million views, and an Emmy nomination for “Best Original Song in a Drama” for his work on ABC’s General Hospital. Emotional, honest, and compassionate, “Father Time” is a privileged glimpse into Axel Mansoor’s thoughtful writing and vocal versatility. Be sure to keep an eye out for the new releases (each week for the next four weeks) from his upcoming EP!

In his words:
I wrote this song to myself on my 24th birthday. It was sort of a quarter-life-crisis inspired meditation on aging and achievement. It’s quiet, reflective, and makes for a perfect anti-summer single.” -Axel Mansoor
