Released on Colombia records, “Red” is actually Daniel Merriweather’s second single from his sophomore album, Love & War. The song debuted on the UK Singles Chart at number 5, Merriweather’s second top 10 single. The singer says “Red is a song “about the blindness of war and the absence of compassion displayed by western administrations.”
Currently featured as a Vh1 “You Oughta Know” artist, his song has been playing quite often on Jump Start in the morning. It was there that I first heard the song and liked it ever since. I’d describe Daniel Merriweather as a male version of British songstress Adele. If you like her song, “Chasing Pavements” you’ll probably like this song too. Check it out below!
