Today, Bryce Vine announces the release of his upcoming Problems EP with a striking new single, “Life Goes On,” out now on Sire Records. Listen HERE. Written in the days after NBA superstar Kobe Bryant’s untimely passing earlier this year, “Life Goes On” is Bryce’s attempt to put the pieces back together after realizing how truly unpredictable (and often unforgiving) the universe can be.
“Kobe was almost like a superhero, especially for black kids,” he says. “I thought the reward for that would be more, so it really shook my faith in good individuals getting what they deserve. After two days, I was going through it. I vented on ‘Life Goes On.’ I said things that made me feel better in the moment about the situation. When I listen to it, it still makes me feel better.”
