Joshua Radin Returns With New Single “I’m Just Different”
September 9, 2022 BY Danielle Romeo
Internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter Joshua Radin returns with new single “I’m Just Different,” a softly anthemic song about self-acceptance and celebrating one’s individuality. Says Radin, “The older I get, the more I realize that I don’t see things the way most people in the world do. For a long time, I’ve felt like an outsider who is able to fit in when I want, but that’s not the same as feeling like I belong. I wrote this song as an anthem for those of us who feel different, and I hope those who can relate, realize as I have, that this is alright.”
Always one for following his own path, Radin left his material existence in the rearview following the release of his 2021 full-length album The Ghost and The Wall. He sold his Los Angeles home, grabbed a backpack, his guitar, a pen and a pad, and hit the road in search of new stories to tell. “I’m Just Different” is the first of more new music coming from Radin in the coming months.
The Ghost and The Wall was released last year to critical acclaim. No Depression said, “As long as Radin remains this honest and the melodies this sweet, there’s every reason to believe he’ll have enough to say for his next 15 years in the business,” while American Songwriter proclaimed, “A more beautiful set of ballads would be hard to come by,” and Glide added, “you are immediately hit with the power and poignancy of Joshua’s atmospheric indie folk…with a kind of lived-in depth and wisdom that lingers long after listening.”
Joshua Radin emerged in 2004 as an empathetic, engaging, and often enthralling troubadour. Over the years, he’s tallied north of 1 billion streams, moved 1 million-plus albums worldwide, and scored a gold certification for the single “I’d Rather Be With You.” His music has appeared in over 200 films, television series, and commercials. In addition to multiple showstopping appearances on Ellen (who also enlisted him to perform at her wedding) and Today Show, and performances on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, and Conan, he contributed “Brand New Day” to a commercial in support of the troops at the request of First Ladies Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden. He’s played to sold out crowds around the globe and shared the stage with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson, Sheryl Crow, Tori Amos and more. Not to mention, he’s a staunch philanthropist who supports Little Kids Rock and North Shore Animal League America (NSALA), among others. Thus far his catalog consists of nine full-length offerings highlighted by fan favorites such as We Were Here, Simple Times, Underwater, Wax Wings, and Here, Right Now.
