Out singer/songwriter Michael Blume dropped his latest single, "I Am Not A Trend (No Rules)," yesterday.

The track, celebrating individuality and self-love, is imminently listenable, layered with self-empowering lyrics, neo-soul melodies, punchy horns, and electronic bouncy beats.

“No one is a trend,” Blume shared with Nylon.com. “Each and every one of us lives a uniquely dynamic and complex life full of distinct needs, dreams, and fears. Too often we are taught to diminish this truth; we are told to mold ourselves to fit some external idea, concept, [and] way of being. Whether it be political, race-related, gender-based, how we look/dress/pray, too often our culture encourages us to do/act/be like some idealized, foreign version of who we actually are."

"‘I Am Not A Trend (No Rules)’ speaks to the celebration of the self, "the New Jersey-native added.

After selling out two headlining shows at Bowery Ballroom with his 11-piece band and touring both the east and west coasts, he is spending his summer playing at major music festivals across the country including the New York City's Governor's Ball and two sets at the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, DE. His tour schedule continues at Chicago's Lollapalooza and Musikfest in Bethlehem, PA.
