LISTEN: Hudson Debuts Gritty New Single 'Chained' Ahead of Album

Following an EP that debuted last summer, Hudson (aka David Hudson) on Tuesday released his latest single, titled "Chained." While his previous material showcased a softer sound, the new track introduces a grittier albeit polished tune, with more mature, gravely vocals that suggest a stronger rock influence.

Speaking with Variance at the time of his Dirty Face EP release, the singer-songwriter said of his music: “I’m not interested in doing shock value. The problem with shock value is that, yeah, people might say something about it, but in the long term it doesn’t leave a mark on you. It’s not something that improves your life or adds value. It’s just filling space. Everything I want to do is opposite of that.”

The actor-turned-musician, also the younger brother of Katy Perry, is currently unsigned but he plans to release a proper full-length sometime this year.

"Chained" is available now on iTunes, and it can be heard below:
