Las Vegas, NV – X Factor sensation Nick Voss is bursting back onto the scene with “Life on Games,” the new video and debut track from his upcoming EP Blame It on the Moon. A nod to the track’s gamer-culture inspired lyrics and pop-rock nostalgia, “Life on Games” follows the singer/songwriter’s digital avatar through a CGI world of beloved video game characters and settings, featuring art and direction from graphic artist Vladyslav Dubyk.
Voss describes “Life on Games,” the first of the Pop/Rock EP’s four tracks featuring eclectic throwback stylings produced by Colin Summers, as a carefree exploration of ambition, distraction, and illusory escape.
“It’s for all the gamers out there living in another reality and escaping the real world,” says the artist. “There can be a certain peace in that solitude, but we often cheat ourselves out of important experiences. It’s all about balance.”
Nick Voss gained international recognition from a breakout performance of Elvis Presley’s “Trouble” on The X Factor’s premiere season, earning unanimous praise from a panel led by Simon Cowell. Nick’s run in the competition was spotted by the creative team of Broadway’s smash hit The Million Dollar Quartet, landing him in the role of Elvis Presley in the show’s flagship production, in partnership with Norwegian Cruise Line. Nick has been featured on USA Network’s Burn Notice and on Nickelodeon’s Talia in the Kitchen and Every Witch Way.
“Life on Games” is independently produced and available on all major platforms. Its release is followed by the EP’s second track, “Blame It on the Moon,” premiering January 5, 2022.
