New Aiden James music

Singer songwriter Aiden James has released his first new music in over a year: a moody yet dance-forward single called “Elixir.” Written during the physical isolation and uncertainty of the pandemic, “Elixir” is how James dealt with, and ultimately overcame, the feeling of helplessness – a tonic for the soul, music for the ears. “Elixir” draws heavily on ‘80s pop classics like Roxette’s “It Must Have Been Love” with some more modern influences reminiscent of The Weekend. “Elixir” is available for purchase and streaming via iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon Music and Tidal.
