Rob Mayes has made his first notable foray of 2020 with the release of Building Us and a cover of Lewis Capaldi’s Someone You Loved. You can watch an audio video of Building Us below.
Mayes has been very busy in the country music world releasing a raft of singles and Building Us – which was written with Kevin Leach, Ryan Rossebo and Evan Williams – is the latest to follow suit.
Speaking about the single and the meaning behind it, Mayes said that it is about growing a family and the nuances of life, with Mayes feeling that the track details a lot of the things in life that are most meaningful to people.
Building Us is an homage to building a family and the support therein,” Mayes said. “Country music is all about life and Building Us is a quintessential life song – from childhood, to adolescence, to having kids of our own, it tells the story of growing up, and the support we give and receive. With conversational verses and a super sing-along-able chorus, Building Us will (hopefully!) have you singing along, smiling and reminiscing.”
Meanwhile, his cover of Capaldi’s Someone You Loved came about after he felt that he could turn it into a country song of sorts, while also praising it as one of the best pieces of music to emerge over the previous 12 months.
“Lewis Capaldi’s Someone You Loved is hands down one of the best songs of 2019,” Mayes explains. “I knew I wanted to envision it as a country song the moment I first heard it. He sings the absolute hell out of it and I hope I do it just a fraction of the justice Capaldi unleashes.”
Rob Mayes released his debut EP ‘Closer’ back in September and it is highly possible that there will be another significant release in the near future.
