From his website: "Platinum-selling singer, songwriter, and musician Gavin DeGraw will release a brand-new album, entitled SWEETER, on J Records on August 9th, 2011. The album's first single, "Not Over You," which Gavin co-wrote with OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder, who also produced the track, will premiere today May 16th on AOL Music, impacts radio on June 6th and will be available for purchase through iTunes and all other digital providers on June 7th."
Love it. Agreed on the clear Tedder influence - way more drums than DeGraw usually uses. This sounds much more commercial than anything off Free - if the label's willing to push it, I could see this being a mid-sized hit (but that could just be wishful hoping).
Apparently this is his biggest hit since "I Don't Want to Be." He's definitely had better songs, but I'm not really surprised that this has done well - it's a solid, if uninspired, song. I'm more surprised that his label actually pushed him after two lackluster eras.
