First Listen: Avant is "Not Gone Lose" this time

(March 11, 2019) It’s been nearly four years since Avant’s last studio album, The VIII. Although the supple singer-songwriter hasn’t announced a new full-length set yet, he’s finally giving fans a dose of new music with the engaging slow-jam, “Not Gone Lose.” Sporting a semi-doo wop-inspired backing arrangement, the number finds Avant appealing to his girl’s sense of security: “If you’re thinkin’ about parting ways these days, you’ve gotta be out of you mind/I don’t wanna lose you, let someone misuse you/‘Cause every day I choose you.”

“Not Gone Lose” was composed by Avant with frequent collaborator Travis Sayles, who also has co-penned songs for the likes of Maxwell and Chrisette Michele in recent years. The new single’s melody is an ideal fit for Avant’s signature tenor stylings and has the potential to appeal to both avid followers and younger listeners unfamiliar with his back catalog.
