Singer, songwriter, and storyteller Michael Marcagi has shared his gut-wrenching new single Tear It All Apart. You can listen to it below.

Boasting the raw lyricism he has become known for, the new offering captures the heartache that accompanies coming of age. It’s Marcagi’s first release since dropping his critically acclaimed American Romance EP, which features the global hit single Scared To Start.

Tear It All Apart is a song about growing up and having your sense of home changing, while also looking the same as it was when you were a kid,” Marcagi explains. “And how the places we go back and visit can evoke such unique and specific memories.”

“I still drive to my parents’ house, laugh and leave it in the mirror,” the breakout artist croons over methodical guitar strumming and building percussion. “It still holds all my memories, but my parents haven’t lived there in 4 years.” Emotions overflow on the track’s soaring chorus: “And all I’ve done is take your love and tear it all apart.” Intimate and disarming, Marcagi’s latest slice-of-life anthem casts an emotional spell tinged with nostalgia.

Tear It All Apart arrives soon after the vinyl release of his Warner Records debut EP American Romance. Its lead single, Scared to Start, has already reached #5 on the Billboard Hot Rock & Alternative Songs chart, #35 on the Billboard Global 200 chart, and #54 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart to date — amassing more than 380 million global streams in the process.

Flaunt Magazine recently observed, “Quite the lyricist, evoking an inspiring and relatable feeling – resonating deeply, and immediately, with those who hear it. The fondness of storytelling and the echoes of his voice shimmer seamlessly through the EP holding a sense of hope that feels almost tangible.”

No doubt, Scared to Start, The Other Side and Tear It All Apart will be highlights of Marcagi’s fall tour, which follows his already sold-out headline tour across North America, New Zealand and Australia. The new tour kicks off on August 22 in Dallas and includes shows across the US and Canada before wrapping up in Vancouver on October 7. Tickets are on sale now and the full list of shows is below.
