Beautiful Stranger

Martin Johnson announces new album

A leader of iconic mid – 2000s pop band Boys Like Girls announces his forthcoming album ‘Dog Years’ dropping March 5. His new band The Night Game was founded in 2016. The group is composed of Johnson and multi-instrumentalist Kirin J. Callinan. They released their debut single, “The Outfield”, in April 2017, followed by the release of their self-titled debut studio album, The Night Game, in September 2018. 

‘Beautiful Stranger’ is Johnson’s latest release and one of the tracks that will find their home on his forthcoming album ‘Dog Years’. It’s 80s inspired love song with punchy drums and dreamy keyboards. Even though Johnson has written and produced for various artists, including Avril Lavigne, Daughtry, Jason Derulo, Christina Perri, Gavin Degraw, Hot Chelle Rae, himself he’s not a fan of performing songs that are not his own creation. 

“I struggle telling stories that aren’t my own. I hadn’t successfully finished a love song since the emo ship sunk, and was slowly sinking in the LA dating quicksand…emotionless, clinging to songs about nostalgia and regret, never about love…most certainly not promising someone they would never be alone.”

“Before you go out and buy something new, before you throw away that item that’s been unloved and unworn lying in the bottom of your wardrobe, think again. With a little imagination, love, and restoration that item can be reworn and reimagined to have a super stylish second life. Think about rewearing as the most timeless style statement yet!”
