“Got U Home”

New single by Lawrence Maxwell

Lawrence Maxwell’s new single “Got U Home”

Lawrence Maxwell recently released his first single of 2023, “Got U Home.” The song channels ‘90s Canadiana and tells the story of a new summer love that is “forbidden” and “too soon.” It’s about being led by lust whilst ignoring better judgement.

Upon his recent recognition with seven Music PEI Award nominations, Maxwell debuted the new song to an encouraging crowd at St. Paul’s in Charlottetown during Music PEI Week. 

“I wanted to showcase this song in a listening environment,” says Maxwell. “That’s the best way to see if a song has legs—when you strip it down to just you and the guitar, and the essence has to come through without any bells and whistles.” 

The crowd’s reaction to the humour and sentiment was enough to assemble the band in the studio and hit record.

“Got U Home” was recorded at the Hill Sound Studio in Charlottetown, PEI with producer/engineer Adam Gallant. The song was masteried by John McLaggan (Parachute Mastering). The track features Ben Aitken (keyboard, organ, background vocals), Josh Langille (drums), Justyn Young (guitar), and Sam Langille (bass).
