“I think at our core as humans we consistently lose the forest for the trees when we are in the thicker situations of life. It’s not until you’re out of the woods or have overcome what it was you were going through that you get to see it all for what it truly is. Whether it’s love (as I refer to in the song), a career, a long term goal, or any budding and flourishing situation, sometimes you have to stop and appreciate how everything ‘played out.’” – Alex Aiono explained
‘Played Out’ finds Alex Aiono musing on all the hardships he’s had to overcome in order to get to where he is now. The likable tune contains a relatable narrative, emotion-laden vocalization, and tuneful melodies. Also, “Played Out” possesses vibrant instrumentation flavored with a contemporary-pop vibration. Furthermore, the song serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear from Alex Aiono and Jake Miller in the near future.
“This new era of music for me is special because I’m on an endeavor to continually reach deeper. With every release, I see more of me in my music. This next era truly will be the deepest I’ve gone yet. And as I live more life and dive further into who I am, I plan to share it with the world.” – Alex Aiono explained
