“Last year I took a trip to London for 3 weeks to chase a girl I barely knew…I thought I was in love with this girl I had never even met in person.
Long story short…I realized she was fake and that it wasn’t gonna work out. This was only a week into the trip…I was stuck. I didn’t want to be there. And even though I was the one who ended it with the girl, I still walked around for the next two weeks in a state of heartbreak and in a drunken stooper.
The strange thing about traveling the world is you feel like you could almost be anywhere. You look at time zones and see how its only 5am at home as you’re eating a late lunch. Or how, if you were in Hong Kong, the sun would have long gone down. Time becomes lucid.
This song is about being trapped in “the in-between.” This song is about going across the world to break your own heart. It’s about being a ghost in a faraway place that doesn’t seem real.”
“GOLD RUSH” arrives at all music retailers and streaming services on Friday, October 5th. Max hits the road shortly after the release to embark on “The Gold Rush Tour.” The North American headline tour begins October 9th in Santa Cruz, CA and continues through mid-November. “GOLD RUSH” was executive produced by Michael “Fitz” Fitzpatrick (Fitz and the Tantrums) and mainly produced by Mick Schultz (Rihanna, Jeremih, YG). Earlier in the year, Max made his national TV debut with a performance of breakout single “Good Morning” on Live with Kelly and Ryan.
Max Frost has also become an in-demand collaborator in his own right, including DJ Snake’s hit single, “Broken Summer (Feat. Max Frost).” Most recently, Frost had a once in a lifetime experience working with Elton John in a London studio for an upcoming collaboration with DJ Mustard.
