Adam Wakefield announced yesterday the release of new track “Blame It On Me”, available digitally tomorrow, March 24. The release marks the first from The Voice contestant’s upcoming EP, due out this summer – and the first formal release since he finished runner-up on Team Blake last year.
The song, written by Adam Cunningham, Nolan Neal and Aron Leigh, was one Wakefield knew was the right release for him after hearing his band perform it live.
“Nolan had played me the song while we were out in L.A., and I loved it,” said Wakefield. “Still, I was a bit resistant to cutting a song that wasn’t one I’d written. But when my band and I worked it up and played it live I just knew it was the one.”
Though a seasoned musician, going out on the road with artist Chris Cagle and Keith Anderson, Wakefield’s spot on The Voice was his introduction to artistry – an opportunity that pushed him to the front of the stage for the first time.
“I’d become comfortable as a musician and hadn’t really entertained becoming an artist,” said Wakefield. “The Voice brought out another side of me. It wasn’t just something I came to love, but something I seemed to excel at. I didn’t initially choose to become an artist – artistry kind of chose me.”
“Blame It On Me” will be available digitally beginning March 24 here.
