LOS ANGELES, CA (February 17, 2023) – Following a run of hit singles last year, singer-songwriter Christian French shares “thank god,” his first new track of 2023 out now via Disruptor Records/RCA Records. The up-tempo, guitar-driven indie pop track finds Christian reflecting on his past and how things could have been – whether it be toxic relationships or significant life changes – expressing gratitude for the lessons he learned along the way.
“‘thank god’ is the full circle moment after a relationship where you finally make it to the other side and realize that not staying with them was the best thing to ever happen to you,”says Christian French of the inspiration behind the song. “You finally have the perspective to see that they weren’t good for you, and when they eventually come back, you don’t even want them back anymore because life is much sweeter without them.”
Late last year, Christian returned to the road with his sold-out golden years fall tour, where he made stops across Salt Lake City, Denver, Chicago, and more, including a performance in his home state of Indiana at the Hoosier Dome.
