Pop Artist A-Zal’s New Hit “Autopilot” Embraces First Love, Longing For The Feeling of Home
Get ready to embark on an emotional journey through the melodious notes of A-Zal’s newest hit “Autopilot”. Quick off the heels of his celebrated single “Lonely Town”, “Autopilot” delves deep into a part of life where everything seems to run on cruise control. It’s a narrative that celebrates accomplishments, glory, and the charm that life has to offer. Yet, amidst all the grandeur, a longing for the real home, not a physical place, but the soul of a lover, persists. It’s a song dedicated to the first love of your life, a place of belonging, and the relatable emotions that resonate. An ode to the intricacies of love and longing, “Autopilot” encapsulates the sentiment of moving through life’s highs and lows, while reminiscing the cherished memories of a past love that once felt like home.
“I didn’t know that life would run this way on an Autopilot / It’s sailing over the clouds, but I miss my home, That’s where I want to be / But with you all alone, and life could run that way on an Autopilot, It’s you who I am looking for” ~ “Autopilot”
The single will be released with a conceptualized music video where A-Zal wears abstract attire and an intriguing look. Self-directed by A-Zal, he sports uniquely shaped black glasses amidst boldly colored back-drops, hiding the vulnerability in his eyes from the outside world. In the video, we witness A-Zal flip back and forth between his bolder, more extroverted self in contrast with an introverted, artistic side, providing the video’s most memorable aesthetic.
Having spent his childhood in London, UK, A-Zal’s musical style encompasses influences from British pop culture. With a dedicated fan base that affectionately refers to him as the “American Ed Sheeran” due to his soulful voice and heartfelt melodies, A-Zal has solidified his presence in the industry. His debut single, “Movie Script,” released in August 2023, quickly ascended the charts, catapulting A-Zal to the Mediabase TOP 40 Activator Charts within just two weeks of its release. The song marked the beginning of a promising career, as it paved the way for his upcoming album, “17 & 11 Nights,” which has already garnered significant attention from audiences, press, and radio. It came in the top 100 in just its second week. The song peaked at #51 in the fourth week, making A-Zal one of the only three independent singers in the top 51 ranking.
A-Zal’s artistic journey led him to the United States, where his exceptional talents were acknowledged through the prestigious Extra-Ordinary Ability visa. Collaborations with major film studios like Marvel Studios, CBS Network, and Netflix followed suit, embedding his soundtracks in popular TV series and movies like “Ms. Marvel,” “Loki,” “NCIS: Los Angeles,” “The Twilight Zone,” and “Resort to Love.”
