With over half a billion streams to his name and as one of Spotify’s Pop Rising Artists to Watch in 2024, Alexander Stewart releases his new single “life at first sight.” Alexander wrote and performed the song for his sister’s wedding and surprised her with it at his hometown show in Toronto, which you can check out here. Since then, videos of Alexander teasing the song have accrued over 20 million views across his TikTok and Instagram. You can listen to “life at first sight” here.

“When I was writing ‘life at first sight,’ I never imagined it would have a life beyond being a sweet surprise for my sister on her big day,” Alexander shares. “But when I started playing it on tour and saw how it moved the crowd, I realized that this song could be the soundtrack for so many other people’s big life moments and knew I had to put it out. Seeing the reaction online to ‘life at first sight’ has been deeply emotional, and I can’t wait to see what other moments this song helps bring to life.”

“life at first sight” follows the release of Alexander’s debut album bleeding heart. Written in between touring dates and amidst achieving international success, the album features Alexander’s massive hits “blame’s on me” currently sitting at almost 120 million Spotify streams, and “i wish you cheated,” which launched with a viral TikTok campaign that saw over 45 million views and led to Alexander’s late-night TV debut performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (watch here). Following his performance, the single became a Top 20 radio hit and broke into Billboard’s Hot 100 chart in Canada. In addition, the album includes “if you only knew,” which Alexander debuted an emotional performance of on Late Night With Seth Meyers last December and was also named one of Rolling Stone’s “Songs You Need To Know.”

Following several sold-out headlining shows across North America, the UK and Europe, including London’s Lafayette, Alexander will conclude The Bleeding Hearts Tour in Luxembourg on Saturday, June 29th. Alexander has previously toured with artists including Charlie Puth, Benson Boone and Eric Nam, as well as for his international headlining Blame’s On Me Tour, where he performed in front of his rapidly growing fan base that has expanded to over 500 million global streams, 325 million views on YouTube and 140 million likes on TikTok.
