Justin David Blau, better known by his stage name 3LAU, has taken a different path through his most recent collaboration with Carly Paige “Would You Understand.”

The song describes the story of two people who’ve fallen out of step with one another, but at least one of them can see the light at the end of the awkward tunnel. Paige, a Los Angeles native, sings on the chorus, “If I told you that my feelings faded/And I need to let you go/Would you put up a fight?/Scream and cry, ‘Baby, please don’t go’/Or would you understand?” trying to feel out whether their split will be smooth or not.

The production is a new, more relaxed vibe courtesy of the BLUME Records founder, who used minimal and ambient synths along with light percussion to complement the vocals, letting them shine through to the front of the track. Listen to the fresh take from 3LAU and Carly Paige below, with a portion of the streaming proceeds going to community-building charities.
