“IIIIIIII don’t wanna beeeee anything other thaaaan what I bin’ tryna beee laaatelaaay”
Everyone loves a bit of a Gavin DeGraw, right? After all, he wrote the iconic theme tune to naughties teen drama ‘One Tree Hill’ and he’s got a jam packed greatest hits out very soon. Well, it turns out Hazza Styles is a bit of a fan too and even got the chance to collaborate with the singer songwriter on a new song. Derp.
The lovely Mr. DeGraw recently spilled all the deets about his experience of writing with the One Direction star and only had good to say (obv’), revealing;
“He was great, honestly. We got in the studio, he was really respectful and he was nice. I sat down at the piano and he’s over there, you know, he’s standing next to me and what not and we’re all, kind of, throwing ideas out. I sang an opening line and he immediately followed it up with another line. And I thought, “oh, look what we have here. Yeah, yeah, this guy’s gonna bring it today.” So, a few hours later we pretty much had the majority of a song completed. A song I think sounds beautiful, it’s a special song. It’s called “Not Our Fault” and I think it’s a winner.”
No word yet on whether the track will be a duet or given to another artist but for now we’re adding it to the ever-growing list of 1D penned / related tunes we have yet to hear along with ‘One Chance to Dance’ and ’18’…
PATIENCE IS NOT OUR STRONG SUIT, GUYS.
