The solo musician’s latest track follows previous releases “Time,” “Miss You,” and “Blue Neon (Club Version).” However, “For You” is a little different as it’s the first time Gallagher took on producer

“This is my first fully self-produced single, which I recorded myself on Logic in my garage,” Gallagher explains. “Everything prior to this I co-produced but always had the benefit of an experienced producer to work with.

“With this song, I had to figure out everything on my own, so if you hate it then the blame it all on me. And if you like it, then that would make me really happy and proud,” he continues. “I’m also very curious to find out what people think the song is really about.”

Gallagher touched on his creative process in a previous interview with AP. When discussing how his two passions compare, he acknowledges that acting came easily while music takes a bit more work.

“Music expresses how I’m feeling and what I’m thinking, [and] acting is just something that I enjoy and have been very lucky with,” he elaborates. “I do feel I’m good at acting, and it comes easily to me. I do enjoy figuring out a character like Five and giving it everything I’ve got.

“But music is harder than acting,” he continues. “With music, I write the music and lyrics, then play and record it on piano and guitar, then produce it on Logic before sending to be mixed and mastered. That all takes a lot more knowledge and skill than acting. It’s a longer process as I explore how to mold the song. Each song develops in its own way with its own requirements. But I love this process, and every year I’ve learned more.  A few years ago, I hired producers to record me, and now I know how to do it myself.”

Now, we have a video to really help us see Gallagher’s vision and vibe for the song. You can see it down below.

A post shared by Aidan R Gallagher (@aidanrgallagher) on

We learned last month that the series based on the My Chemical Romance frontman and illustrator Gabriel Bá’s series racked up about 45 million viewers in the first four weeks it was available on the platform.

To put that into perspective, similar popular titles like Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened and Our Planet only raked in up to 25 million households viewing each respective show. Netflix considers a “view” when around 70% of the show’s runtime has been viewed.

That means the show has been something of a smash, then, so its creators should be quite proud. That’s probably part of what went into the decision to renew the show for a second season, after all.
