Published Jul 01, 2014Although relatively unknown in North America, singer-songwriter/producer/rapper Elliot John Gleave — more commonly known by his stage name Example — is a huge hit at home in the UK, thanks to chart-topping records (2011's Playing in the Shadows, 2012's The Evolution of Man) and regular appearances on popular panel programs like Never Mind the Buzzcocks and 8 Out of 10 Cats. Now, the EDM-geared Englander is ready to conquer North America's clubs with his fifth studio album.
Live Life Living won't be out in Canada until July 8. While you wait, stream his new LP in full on Exclaim.ca.
On the British beatmaker's newest disc, Ibizia-ready jams ("All the Wrong Places") and anthemic electronica (album opener "Next Year") mix with more traditional pop hits (the nostalgic "Kids Again" and album's title track), resulting in the dancefloor's newest summertime staple. Elsewhere, Example creates tracks that easily evoke the European rave explosion found in the early-'90s.
"For me, 'One More Day' evokes all the great moments of '90s euphoria, but I've put a bit of a twist on everything as it's 2014," Example said in a press release about the album's standout single, which was produced in part by previous producer Alex Smith. "Pianos as club hooks have worked well for me in the past so with this track I wanted to recapture some of that sunshine in my music."
