East of Eli, also known as Nathan West, has returned with his latest single "Child's Play."
Upon its release this week, the modern electro pop track quickly climbed the iTunes charts. Featuring backup vocals from West's wife, actress Chyler Leigh, it is an obvious hit and an immediate new favorite.
"Child's Play" is a coming of age story about first love inspired by West's son. "The reason behind the song was to help my son navigate the next five years of his life as he winces ever closer to the 'coming of age' years in his life," West explained. "I felt sharing my experience would give him much needed insight and perspective on what he may expect and also let him know he has someone on his side that can relate to on his own journey."
East of Eli is currently preparing his upcoming release Lost Transmission, which will contain "Child's Play" in addition to other songs dedicated to all three of his children, his wife, and himself that "connect with humanity through the music," he said.
