PREMIERE: Experience The Million’s ‘Last Call’ a little differently with this chill version
Earlier this month, The Million released their brand new single titled ‘Last Call’. Inspired by 80s synth-pop but still maintaining that self-assured RnB feel, ‘Last Call’ is a heartbreak anthem that chooses to shake it all off as opposed to wallowing in the blues. It’s an instant earworm, and an exciting new evolution for the band. Fast forward to now, and we are thrilled to premiere this liberating bop in a way you haven’t heard it before — the Chill Version.
Reimagining their own single, slowing things right down and changing its sonic landscape completely, The Million shake things up with this release. Released alongside some visuals which show the four-piece performing their single, this version of ‘Last Call’ casts that same heartbreak in an entirely new light. It’s still got that palpable shirking of defeat in the wake of heartbreak, but the new, spatial arrangement allows room for more emotion to swell and bloom.
The Million said, “We really wanted to shoot and produce a stripped version of the song so people could really connect with the lyrics as they’re the driving force of the song – we filmed it at our friends house Nikki Berm who her family graciously allowed us to use for the visualisers as well. Jacob Thomas (lead singer and lyricist) shot and directed it with our friends helping on the day!”
An undeniable pop gem whichever version you choose, The Million prove with this release they mean business in 2021. Riding the high from adding touring member McKinley Payne officially to the fold as well as selling out headline shows and touring with Sloan Peterson in 2020 and working with Nothing But Thieves’ founder-member Dom Craik for ‘Last Call’, The Million are on a roll!
