New Music: Asher Monroe - "Lonely Island" [Premiere]

We finally have a follow-up to “Memory” (featuring Chris Brown). Actor/singer Asher Monroe will be releasing his new single "Lonely Island" on iTunes tomorrow, July 25th, but he gave MTV.com the streaming premiere of the song this afternoon. The song, distributed by D Empire Entertainment, is certainly a change in sound from Asher Monroe’s EDM single “Memory” released last year’s November. "Lonely Island" is more pop, more sensible and it’s got a sultry half real instruments/half synth production.

Review of "Lonely Island"

I liked “Memory”, even though it was EDM. There’s nothing bad about bopping to EDM music, right? And certainly I am surprised by the drastic sound change Asher's doing on his next single "Lonely Island". The track ain’t bad, but it’s nothing groundbreaking either. It’s very safe. Asher’s 25 year olds and "Lonely Island" sounds like a pop song a male artist under 20 years old would record. So you start understanding my problem with the song. Maybe it is a grower, because as of now I am not feeling the verses nor the chorus, but I do like the pre-chorus. I do think the sultry production is very summery. So this is perfect release time for this song.

Hit or Miss?
