Since the break-up of The Merrymakers, David has written songs by himself. However, on this particular song he brought in co-writersAndreas Mattsson (ex-Popsicle) and American hit maker Ian Eskelin (from Grammy nominated All Star United). The result is an uplifting summery pop anthem not short on memorable hooks and catchy melodies.
The music for the song written two years ago; a result of a songwriting session in Nashville. The basic structure took shape in mere 20 minutes with David, Ian, a guitar and a piano as ingredients. They got stuck on the lyrics though, so the song was put to rest until David started work on the album. Still out of ideas for a good lyrical angle, he called up his colleague from Swedish pop wonder Popsicle to see if he wanted to give it a shot. After some time David got an e-mail that read "Something like this, maybe?" and attached was a beautifully crafted pop lyric full of melancholy, heart ache and longing; the perfect fit for the song.
"Looking for a Life" is the second single to be released from the upcoming solo album Soundshine, which is due for a release in the fall of 2011. The first single "Got You Where He Wanted" came out in March was very well received in the powerpop community and has enjoyed heavy rotation on Swedish radio.
David recently came home from a trip to London where had the album mastered at the legendary Abbey Road studios. He also played a gig at a pop music festival called International Pop Overthrow which for the first time took place in London. This summer he will perform at Swedish festivals with his band in preparation for the upcoming album release.
The single is available on iTunes and all other digital stores now. Fans can download it for free by clicking "Like" on David Myhr's Facebook page!
