Boys Like Girls are set to release their new Crazy World EP this Tuesday, July 17th. The EP features three full length songs including the first single “Be Your Everything,” “Life Of The Party” and “The First Time” from the pop-rock band’s forthcoming third album Crazy World, available this fall. The band is offering the EP in conjunction with iTunes’ “Complete My Album,” which allows fans who purchase the EP to get the full length album at a discounted price upon its release.
Check out the band’s new lyric video for “Be Your Everything” below along with more information about the band’s upcoming album and a video of Martin skydiving.Boys Like Girls singer and songwriter Martin Johnson underwent a serious creative transformation while making the platinum-selling quartet’s third album, Crazy World. About “Be Your Everything,” the frontman says, “It’s a great transition from where the band was. We came from a wall of guitars, and the sound has evolved.” He adds: “The only time I really express my feelings is when I’m writing music. That’s how it’s been since I was a little kid. This song is about the moment when it becomes okay to say, I love you.” At the same time, there’s the hand-clap stomp of “Life of the Party,” which lives up to its moniker. In a world preoccupied with tragedy and its own end, Johnson urges to let go and live a little during the track’s unforgettable refrain.
Outside of Boys Like Girls, Johnson has written and co-written songs and hits for many artists including Taylor Swift, Victoria Justice, Hot Chelle Rae (feat. Demi Lovato), Jason Derulo, Ashley Tisdale, Escape the Fate, Papa Roach, Black Veil Brides, Breathe Carolina and Hillary Duff, among others.
