- Johnny Gates Premieres New Song “Brooklyn Nights” on SoundCloud
- Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Johnny Gates has shared a new song “Brooklyn Nights” on SoundCloud.
The song was premiered exclusively on Parade Magazine.
The track will appear on his upoming EP, including the previously released singles "Cliché" and "Wish I Knew You".
Originally, he released the song as LA rock band Runaway Saints in 2015. But this time, he re-recorded the song as a solo artist with producer David Labrel (Ryan Adams, Lukas Graham).
“’Brooklyn Nights’ is actually the first song that I wrote all by myself,” Johnny Gates said of the song. “It’s about a girl that I used to go to New York City with when I was younger… we would always stroll around Brooklyn together and dream up stories about our future, about us living together. We pictured it all happening, but it never did. And now, I can’t go back there without thinking about her. So I wrote this song about just that… Connecting a place to a person.”
