Many people will tell you that everything happens for a reason—whether that reason is God, fate, or some other unfathomable force in the universe—but events like those that occurred this past Friday in Newtown, Connecticut present a strong challenge to that belief. On his latest promo single, written and recorded as a dedication to victims of the tragedy, Mike Posner admits that he can’t see any rhyme or reason in what went down, but speculates, “Maybe it’ll all make sense in Heaven.” The Southfield, Michigan representative backs his heartfelt vocals with a simple, but effective I-V-v-IV chord progression on piano and guitar. This poignant cut is, as mentioned above, simply a promo single, but Posner fans can, of course, keep their browsers locked for further news and song releases from the RCA Records recording artist.
