The Scoop: Pop-rock trio King The Kid (Ricky Ficarelli, David Michael Frank, and Jose Mostajo) have exclusively partnered with Billboard to release their pop hit single and lyric video “Last Train,” co produced by the band and Adam Sliger. You can watch the video on Billboard.com here.
The Spin: “For Last Train, the music came first. We had just gotten back together after a short break from writing and demoing songs, and David had come up with this feel-good vibe intro while in New Mexico. It was a little different from what we had been working on and it was a fun song to tackle. When it came down to writing lyrics we knew we wanted something that we had experienced while still being a relatable topic. It’s about a long-distance relationship, and the final moments of being together before the last goodbye and leaving each other’s side. Being in a band that travels often, we’ve all been there, and the song wrote itself pretty effortlessly.” – King The Kid
The band hit their mark this past year with a wildly successful Miley Cyrus “Wrecking Ball” cover with over 3.7 million views and Taylor Swift “22” cover featuring friends: Alex Goot, Sam Tsui, Kurt Schneider, and Against The Current. But don’t let the cover fool you, the band released two records this past year, Start Something and Start Something: Reinvented EP, that sent fans wanting more.
