The Word Alive’s Tyler “Telle” Smith Releases Solo Single “Crazy”


The Word Alive frontman Tyler “Telle” Smith has premiered his debut solo single, “Crazy“. Rock Sound launched the track and are also running an interview with Smith about the project. Speaking to that publication about why this song was chosen to launch the project, he stated:

“…The reason that ‘Crazy’ is coming out first is because it’s the middle of the road song in terms of what the project is at this point. I wanted it to be personal and really show a different side of myself. Though then I also have a song that is very artsy. Our old drummer Luke Holland drums on it and it’s probably my favourite song that I’ve ever written. But at the same time I don’t want people to think that’s what every song sounds like.

“‘Crazy‘ feels like a really good vibe to start on though. I felt like it wasn’t so overly upbeat. I didn’t want to launch with anything too upbeat. This is very chill and it’s a style that people can be really into or it can be their introduction to it as well. I just wanted it to be a middle ground. Knowing that I come from the rock world, I wanted this song to be the gateway song for people who have never listened to anything like this before.”

According to Smith, an alternate version of the song featuring elements inspired by trap is also forthcoming.
