Here is Amy Allen – What a Time to Be Alive (download) ft. Pink Sweat$. The song released with Mp3 streaming [320kbps]. The new track is the latest record from the music acts.
The new single is a follow up to her September release titled Heaven. Their collabo also comes with an accompanying music video.
After a meteoric two-year rise from struggling musician to one of the industry’s most in-demand songwriters, Amy Allen made the gutsy decision to step-away from her furious success as a hitmaker for others and to return to her original path as an artist. The result is a collection of songs for her debut solo LP.
“I started playing music when I was eight,” she recalls. By the time she was 10 years old, Amy was writing songs. For more than a decade Allen wrote uniquely for herself, honing her skills as a five-tool player, becoming a writer, a producer, a player and a performer.
She enrolled at Berklee College of Music, known for illustrious alumni such as John Mayer and Quincy Jones. Post-graduation, she launched herself into New York, forming upstart band, Amy & The Engine.
But Amy’s life took a twist when she met Scott Harris, a songwriter and producer for Shawn Mendes, Dermot Kennedy, and Taylor Swift. He opened her eyes to the world of pop writing for major artists.
Dazzled by her talent, Scott became her mentor. He had never represented another songwriter before, but Amy inspired him to launch a publishing company so that she could become his first signing.
After penning ‘Back To You‘ for Selena Gomez in 2018, Allen decided to break from her band and move to Los Angeles – the big leagues for songwriters. She knew she could be a better writer and that she needed experience to grow. “My songwriting was changing in a good way and in a scary way,” she says.
With each new genre and artist, Amy grew exponentially, which was reflected in her lightning-fast commercial success. The Maine-native has since had a fairytale run collaborating with the biggest names in music, including Halsey, Camilla Cabello, Shawn Mendes and Sam Smith.
Most recently she’s been celebrating the success of ‘Adore You,’ co-written with Harry Styles, and her inclusion in the Forbes 30 Under 30 list in 2020.
[Verse 1: Amy Allen]
Isn’t it cold?
Well it gets warmer every day
And isn’t slow?
Drivin’ around, lookin’ for love
Waitin’ for everything to change
Swearin’ yesterday wasn’t such a lonely place
Guess the kids won’t know what they’re missin’ anyway
[Chorus: Amy Allen]
Would you wanna live
In a world that isn’t right?
Would you just forgive
All the things we pushed aside?
Would you wanna be growin’ tall
And the giants fall like raindrops from the sky?
What a time to be alive
What a time to be alive
[Verse 2: Pink Sweat$]
Was it a dream?
When I feel a fire, you heal my eyes
It’s not easy to see
But when you’rе searchin’, you will find
That life ain’t black and white
Evеrything we’re fightin’ for in the gray
