Adam French releases electrifying new single Inevitable ahead of sophomore album

Building on the momentum of his previous release, Rubber Band, Adam French showcases a more electrifying and intense side of his musical prowess with his latest single – Inevitable – an ‘overdriven, Black keys inspired alt-pop anthem with a side order of Hozier’.

Known for his soulful and emotive style, Inevitable solidifies French’s fresh sonic direction and acts as further confirmation that his upcoming sophomore album – A House, A Home – is going to sound very different to his debut The Back Foot & The Rapture, which amassed over 35 million streams on Spotify.

Inevitable opens with overdriven guitars reminiscent of French’s rock influences while the gravelly Josh Homme-esque quality in his vocals compliments this edgier direction. Exploring a heavier instrumentation has only served to amplify the raw, unapologetic energy that Adam delivers with his music – the louder guitars and raspy maturity a vehicle for his poignant storytelling.

Co-written with Kevin Griffin, known for collaborations with Taylor Swift and Blondie, French describes Inevitable as “A song about instant connection and chemistry, the feeling you get when you just know…” And the track masterfully captures that exhilaration and deep-rooted emotion in a powerful, soaring chorus that is packed with punchy guitar and passion.

Produced, mixed, and performed entirely by French in his home studio Inevitable is intimate without feeling DIY – it’s been beautifully put together from start to finish, which Adam has described as ‘empowering’, commenting: “I’ve set up shop at my home studio now; everything is self-produced and self-contained. It’s been empowering, especially at such an interesting time for the changes and shifts in the music industry.”

As Adam French boldly asserts himself in the alt-pop scene and turns up the volume, Inevitable serves as a thrilling preview of what awaits on A House, A Home later this year. The singer added: “ It’s been a lot of fun making what is essentially a guitar led album that’s definitely been inspired by my youth a lot more than my debut was. ‘Louder guitars and more beef please, sir’ – is basically what I was going for.”
