“’Everything Sounds Like A Love Song’ is a song about missing the love of your life,” says X Ambassadors lead singer Sam Nelson Harris. “When everything you see, hear, and smell reminds you of them, and how painful it can be witnessing beauty when your heart is broken. Like the universe is just playing tricks on you.
“With this song, we pay homage to some of our favorite artists-- Aretha, Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles, Joe Cocker, The Band, The Staples Singers-- all of whom inspired the sound / direction for ‘Belong EP’, co-written by the incredible Sam Romans, produced by X Ambassadors and Sean O'Brien, with arrangements by Lemar Guillary and Rosie Danvers.”
X Ambassadors are currently amid a tour of Australia and New Zealand and will head to Europe later this month which includes a run of sold out UK shows including the new London venue, set up by Ben Lovett of Mumford & Sons, Lafayette on February 22nd.

X Ambassadors released their new album ORION in June 2019 and headed out on an extensive international headline tour. ORION followed the release of X Ambassadors’ debut album VHS which saw the band transition from Ithaca alt-rockers and Brooklyn indie scene outsiders to Billboard stalwarts.
Now certified platinum, VHS provided an intimate look at Sam Nelson Harris and his brother Casey Harris’ youth, studded with audio snippets from home movies, and early recording sessions and sound checks.
With it, came the genre-defining hits ‘Unsteady’ and ‘Renegades’, a three-year global touring odyssey and a string of high-profile festival performances. X Ambassadors have also collaborated with some top names and more recently wrote and produced three songs on Lizzo’s Grammy-nominated album Cuz I Love You, including the song ‘Jerome’, which won a Grammy for Best Traditional R&B Performance.
