Back in December, during JR’s Basics for Babies FUNdraising Day at Langley Events Centre, I was walking Chad Brownlee through the bowels of the building to the live broadcast tent so he could do a quick interview. We were chatting about stuff and, not surprisingly, his new music came up. He told me he was really excited was about this new stuff, that he felt it was the best music he’s ever made and he couldn’t wait for me to hear the whole EP. He was so excited about it he caught me off guard. I hadn’t ever seen him quite that emphatic about anything. Chad’s usually a pretty chilled out guy, so for him to be this excited, I figured big things were coming our way. I was right. His new single, “I Hate You For It”, is fantastic and just happens to be our only add this week. Add to that single the rest of the EP which was released today, and he has every right to be excited. It’s excellent. It is 100% Chad Brownlee. In some songs he wails. In others, he rocks out. In others, he’s flirtatious and charming. It’s worth every second and every penny.
