Today (Feb 22), Spotify announces two new Spotify Singles from GRAMMY-nominated singer, songwriter and instrumentalist Tauren Wells, who will be releasing a rendition of his own song “Use a Friend” and a cover of the ballad “Halo,” made famous by Beyoncé. With over 2 million monthly listeners and 10+ GRAMMY nominations, Tauren Wells has been producing hits since his career began in 2016. Tauren’s music has charted on various Christian music lists and has been nominated for a Billboard Music Award.
Side A is a rendition of his original song “Use a Friend,” incorporating unique new sounds and refreshing the overall instrumental. On Side B, Tauren covers Beyoncé’s iconic “Halo,” where he energizes the early 2000s classic blending a soulful serenade with the addition of an upbeat rhythm.
“My favorite part of my Spotify single “Halo” is actually the concept of the song. The fact that this is talking about a relationship that completely surrounds you. Surrounds you in love, surrounds you peace, surrounds you in comfort. And in a time when we’re surrounded by so many other things that are difficult to manage and to struggle through it’s good know that somebody is with you in at all.” -Tauren
