“This song is simply about looking at each day as a fresh start. I was feeling very grateful for the life that I have in this world of music, and being able to travel and live wherever I choose to. It’s about keeping it all moving in this direction and with that kind of flow. The song was written during one of the times where I was getting a bit over being in the same location. I was feeling like it was time to move on to the next place. It’s a new day, why not go somewhere new.” – Benji Lewis

‘New Day’ conjures up feelings of happiness and freedom, the start of something fresh or something new and exciting. Also, it’s a song we can all relate to on some level, a perfect vacation companion.

The Chris Weigen-directed music video was shot at various locations across Los Angeles.

“I worked on the video with my friend and regular collaborator Chris Weigen. We wanted it to give off warm feels and keep it really simple. Walking around, continuing to move forward on your journey and enjoying it all as you go. It was a lot of fun. We mostly just got to hang out and film content in some really nice locations by Malibu beach, the canyon, and the beautiful green gardens. Also, in the cool studio location, we found with all the different colored walls. I told Chris how much I love the quality and feel that comes with shooting on film and he was able to get his hands on a really cool handheld film camera (think it was a Super 8). So there’s some of that mixed in with digital footage shot on the RED camera.” – Benji Lewis

‘New Day’ contains a relatable storyline, ear-welcoming vocals, and tuneful melodies. Also, the likable tune possesses lush instrumentation scented with a warm contemporary pop aroma.
