While we love a booty shaking jam as much as everyone else, we applaud Andre Henry for providing some much desired substance to the landscape with “Roses While We’re Young”. In other words, thanks for saying something meaningful (and repeatable) in your song. Straightforward and simple in execution (sometimes less is more), “Roses While We’re Young” urges us to celebrate the ones we love while we have the chance. The video also features a cameo from one of the song’s producers, the legend herself–Ms. Valerie Simpson.  Check it out.

From the Press Release:  “Roses” is a poignant love poem conveying the
urgency of saying “I love you”, set to stunning slow-motion portraits of some of
Andre’s most loyal fans and supporters—including a cameo from the song’s
producer Kieran Kelly and legendary singer-songwriter Valerie Simpson.
‘Roses’ was originally intended to be a track on a fan-inspired project about the
end of the world. In late 2012, amid the buzz about Mayan apocalyptic
prophecies, Andre took to Facebook looking for inspiration. “Suppose the world
were really going to end this year,” he posted in a status to his fans, “what kinds
of songs would you want on your playlist?” One comment simply read, “Write a
letter to the person who impacted your life the most.” Andre chose to write about
his friends, fans, and family, and thus this song was born.

There are plans for a series of EP’s and singles to follow the release of “Roses
While We’re Young” later this year. The track is available on iTunes, Spotify, on
Andre’s official website (AndreHenryMusic.com), and other online stores.
