Better Than Ezra, known for their hits “Good,” “Desperately Wanting,” and “Juicy,” have premiered the lyric video for their first single “Crazy Lucky” off their upcoming album on PopCrush.
The catchy first single “Crazy Lucky” which charted #13 on iTunes Rock Charts, was produced by Grammy nominated mixer/producer Tony Hoffer (Fitz and the Tantrums, M83, Beck, Silversun Pickups). The single is now available on iTunes.
When it comes to inspiration behind the song, lead singer Kevin Griffin says “It’s about that serendipitous moment when you meet the person you are meant to be with and it was luck / fate / destiny that made it happen…it’s kismet.”
Early supporters of the single “Crazy Lucky” include HOT AC stations KMXB/Las Vegas, SIRIUSXM The Pulse, WCDA/Lexington,KCIX/Boise to name a few!
“Crazy Lucky is clever, romantic, and hooky! The perfect spring time love song.” - Charese Fruge, Program Director KMXB – Las Vegas, NV
