The musician is currently working on his fourth full-length offering, Love Punch.
Toronto-based musician Cameron Philip has released his new single, Arms Tonight, fusing together sonic threads of punk, pop and rap, into one succinct genre-defying track.
Produced by Good Charlotte’s Billy Martin, the track conceptually captures the eternal strength of true love, as the musician hopes when he reaches the end of his life, he'll be in the comforting arms of his loved one. Weaving in electronic threads, the release brings the emo lyricism that ran rampant in the early 2000's into a contemporary landscape, with Philip's vocals bringing to life the evocative and intimate lyricism laced throughout.
Speaking of the track, Philip shares: "For me, Arms Tonight is very special because it is about someone that I love very much, and it talks about how I want to spend my final moments with them so that I can spend eternity happy. Any time I write a song about/for someone, it becomes much more significant to me because I put a lot of myself into those relationships and the song reflect that."
Having launched his career making K-pop dub and remix videos on YouTube, Philip soon grew his own dedicated following, before releasing his debut single, Better Than You, in 2018. The following year, the musician dropped two back-to-back albums, Feelings and Failures and The Adventure, backed up by a seven-track EP in 2020, dubbed Neo: Dreamland. Showing no signs of slowing down, Philip followed up the EP with his third studio album, Neo: Dreamworld, which arrived earlier this year, marking the musicians most ambitious body of work to date.
Throughout his career, Philip has taken home a number of awards, taking home 'Hip-Hop Artist of The Year' at the Niagara Music Awards for two consecutive years in 2017 and 2018, as well as 'Song of The Year' in 2019 for his single, Pretender. The musician is keeping the momentum, working on his next full-length offering, Love Punch.
Arms Tonight is out now!
