Writing a new song can be very exciting. It’s the start of an entirely new chapter in your songwriting life. Whether you wrote a new song as a way to surprise your loved one with something new or to get back into the swing of things, writing a new song can be thrilling. The problem is that, unless you’re really sure about what direction to take, the new song can end up sounding totally and utterly horrible. So how do you know whether or not you should rewrite your new song?
One of the biggest indicators to whether or not to rewrite your song is whether or not it’s a good fit for your song’s theme. The last thing you want to do is spend all of your hard work creating a great new song only to have it ignored by radio stations. Your new song needs to have the same feel and tone as your old song. Otherwise, all of your hard work will have been for naught. Even if you love your new song, if it doesn’t have the same “presence” as your old songs, rewriting it just won’t do.
Another great indicator that it might be time to rewrite a new song is how well the new song sounds when you’re listening to it. Many times new songs are written and recorded at different times than their older versions. Sometimes producers and radio stations may want a newer more updated version of what you were writing about. In this case, it’s important to give them what they’re asking for so that you get the chance to showcase your talent.
One of the most important factors when deciding whether or not to rewrite part of a new song is whether or not the new song fits with what you’re already accomplishing in your music career. While many artists have had success rewriting and recording of an old song, some have not had much success with it. If your new song is not really part of your overall sound, then chances are you don’t really need to rewrite it.
On the other hand, if you have a new song that you feel really proud of, and it hasn’t had much exposure to the public yet, then maybe it would be a good idea to write and record a new song. When you rewrite a new song, you need to make sure that you have all of your parts down and you have the time and energy to spend on it. You also need to consider the fact that different people will have different opinions about how a new song should sound. Some people like the slightly annoying keyboard hook from the beginning of a song, while someone else would prefer to take things slow and build up the song’s pace. Rewriting a new song also requires that you have an understanding of the song’s structure and flow. Many times artists need to have a song written in one day and rehearse it for several days in order to be able to write something that can be performed live.
Another factor that needs to be considered when rewriting a new song is the maturity of the song. Sometimes a song becomes stale and needs to be rewritten to keep it fresh. Other times the lyrics need to change due to age or time constraints. Regardless of the situation, there are certain points that need to be considered before recording a new song. If you follow these tips, you’ll be sure to come up with a great new song.
