From Jigsaw Records artist James Edgar we have the new single Pretend. It deals with the reality of a broken relationship, when someone stays only because leaving is too hard. I think we have all been there, and this feels like a moment to appreciate the power of songwriting to express and deal with difficult issues.
With a strong pop sound and some top-notch songwriting, the simple power of Edgar's voice and lyrics are able to shine. It's a track that could play next to Shawn Mendes any day of the week.
