NASHVILLE, TENN. (May 29, 2020) — Independent artist ODELL has released today his second single “17 Hours”. The anticipated single follows ODELL’S first single “Eventually,” which accumulated 60 THOUSAND plays on Spotify. ODELL was put on the social media map when he was a contestant on Season 10 of NBC’s Emmy-Award “The Voice” in 2016.
Packed with ODELL’s impeccable vocal tones and ambient sounds, “17 Hours” is penned by ODELL himself and produced by John Luke Lewis.
The idea behind “17 Hours” started in 2019 while he was thinking about a past relationship. He was struggling with handling the breakup, not because he couldn’t handle it, but because he didn’t handle it at all. “The idea is best described as the breaking point after the breakup,” ODELL says. “You drive into the night trying to get away from it all, but you still end up in the same place you were when you started, avoiding the breakdown.” The song comes from hopeless romantic escapism that takes you to a midnight drive trying to clear your thoughts.
