Why Don’t We Releases Song “Fallin'”

Morgan Montgomery, Business Manager

For the first time since December 2019, Why Don’t We has released a song called “Fallin’.” The song is completely different from all the other songs they have released. This song is a little more ‘in your face’, in the words of member Corbyn Besson. The band turned 4-years-old on Sept. 27 and they released the song Sept. 29, almost like a happy birthday to the band.

“Fallin’” begins with Jonah Marais, the pre-chorus is sung by Daniel Seavey and the chorus is sung by all of them, but Zach Herron’s voice is front and center at the beginning. The second verse is sung by Corbyn Besson and the bridge is sung by Jack Avery and has outstanding vocals by all the members, the use of runs and falsettos was very impressive. 

While their other songs have traditional boyband sounds, this one is a little more rock influenced. This is the first song that is completely written and produced by the five members of the band. 

“Fallin’” was created from a melody that Seavey thought of on the drive to the studio and “the whole song dropped into [his] head” Seavey said. Seavey, Besson, and Marais “went into this room for like 45 minutes, maybe an hour” Marais said. 

While the song is vastly different from anything they’ve done before, it’s nice to be able to  watch the band grow and progress.

The beat and lyrics of the song are catchy and get stuck in the listeners head, but that’s not something to complain about. “Fallin’” is about falling in love, as seen in the lyrics  “I can feel the rush of adrenaline. I’m not scared to jump if you want to. Let’s just fall in love for the hell of it. Maybe, we’ll just keep fallin’.” 

“Fallin’” is leading the release of their next album however, there’s no release date yet. Overall, this song is one of the best songs to ever be released by Why Don’t We.
