Major Long-Awaited Album 'Columbo' Out Now Accompanied By "The Show Must Go On" Video

Bruno Major unveiled his latest single “The Show Must Go On”. The song is the final offering from his upcoming album 'Columbo' via Harbour Artists & Music / AWAL Recording. 

Listen to the song here:

“The Show Must Go On” sets the stage for 'Columbo'. A piano flourish giving way to a clean, snare-less drum pattern and guitar strum that conjures the cozy fireside intimacy of Neil Young’s “Out on the Weekend.” Bruno’s vocal riffs ebb and flow before the song blossoms into a crescendoing chorus that perfectly illuminates the path for the album ahead. 

The music video for “The Show Must Go On” aligns with the song’s themes of anxiety and public image. The video follows a protagonist who portrays an enormous smile when out with his friends, but when alone, his sparkle diminishes. With a more-than-ever relatable theme, the music video for “The Show Must Go On” brings Bruno’s innermost thoughts to the surface.

“The Show Must Go On” is the final single from 'Columbo', following “A Strange Kind Of Beautiful,” “Tell Her,” album title track “Columbo,” and his first new track in three years, “We Were Never Really Friends.” RIFF Magazine heralds “A Strange Kind Of Beautiful” as “introspective…an intimate song that’s as relaxed as Major has intended his music to be.” UPROXX raves, “‘Tell Her’ maintains the moody, jazz-influenced vibes from the pop tracks dropping lately. Major uses his words as wishes that he hopes an ex would hear, or as he notes, ‘taking the words from the sad songs instead.’” Clash praises “Columbo,” calling it “a soothing Spring-like hymn reminiscent of Paul Simon… a sun-drenched piece of melodic songwriting, while the video has a special guest star – Bruno’s 1978 Mercedes 380SL.” “We Were Never Really Friends” was released in May to critical acclaim. Billboard chronicles the track as “... a classic spoil-the-friendship jam that masquerades as a piano ballad before blooming into a lighters-up rock sing-along, complete with a stringy guitar solo.”

Bruno's newest album 'Columbo', the highly-anticipated follow-up to 2020’s 'To Let A Good Thing Die' is a 12-track body of work. It weaves the autobiographical with the observational and stretches Bruno’s palette into new forms, yielding the most accomplished and “honest” expression of his music to date. 

Marking a triumphant return to the stage after his 2020 tour was cancelled due to COVID, Bruno will kick off an expansive headlining tour in Tokyo on August 8th. He will make his way through major cities in Southeast Asia, including his top-10 streaming countries like the Philippines, Indonesia, and Malaysia, before heading to Denver, CO to start the North American leg of the tour on September 4th. Bruno Major's highly anticipated shows in Southeast Asia have generated overwhelming demand, resulting in some countries being sold out.
