Album artwork for DE'WAYNE's new EP, I WANT YOU MORE THAN ANYBODY WANTS YOU.

DE'WAYNE's new EP, I WANT YOU MORE THAN ANYBODY WANTS YOU, is set to be released on June 26, 2024, via Fearless Records, and is a testament to his dynamic artistry and constant refusal to be boxed into a single genre. Following his acclaimed works, Don't Be Afraid (2017) and STAINS (2021), DE'WAYNE continues to blend elements of rock, pop, and soul in a way that feels both innovative and deeply authentic.

The EP opens with "synthesizer," a vibrant love letter to his best friend. Drawing inspiration from The Commodores' classic "Brick House," DE'WAYNE transforms the synthesizer into a symbol of affection and allure. The track's upbeat tempo and catchy chorus make it a standout, setting the tone for the rest of the EP.

"lightweight" follows, exploring the theme of perseverance in both love and life's challenges. The song's powerful message is mirrored in its energetic arrangement, combining elements of boxing and romance. The bridge, with its poignant lyrics, "If I take two steps in and you do the same, we might just be alright we might, we might," resonates deeply, highlighting DE'WAYNE's lyrical prowess.


"homewrecker" shifts the mood with its gritty narrative and raw emotion. The track delves into the complexities of relationships, showcasing DE'WAYNE's ability to tackle tough subjects with honesty and vulnerability. The fusion of rock and soul elements creates a compelling soundscape that draws the listener in.

The EP closes with "mr. she," a reflective and introspective piece. This track encapsulates the essence of DE'WAYNE's artistry — a blend of personal storytelling and genre-defying music. The smooth melodies and heartfelt lyrics leave a lasting impression, rounding out the EP on a high note.

Throughout I WANT YOU MORE THAN ANYBODY WANTS YOU, DE'WAYNE's collaboration with his longtime producer HISER (Hey Violet, Little Hurt, Young Rising Sons) shines. The production is polished yet retains a sense of rawness, capturing the essence of DE'WAYNE's eclectic influences. From Marvin Gaye to The Cars, the EP seamlessly integrates elements of sub-genres of rock and pop, infused with DE'WAYNE's signature soulful touch.

DE'WAYNE's latest effort not only cements his place in the alternative rock scene but also pushes the boundaries of what contemporary music can be. With its rich blend of genres, heartfelt lyrics, and captivating melodies, I WANT YOU MORE THAN ANYBODY WANTS YOU is a testament to DE'WAYNE's unique vision and unwavering dedication to his craft.
