In his first single in three years, Bruno Major returns with “We Were Never Really Friends”—a love lost ballad accompanied by a video that breathes nostalgia for California's golden years.
When it comes to love songs that make for Valentine's playlists and break-up songs that perfectly encapsulate the disparity of losing partners, Bruno Major is one of the go-to artists that can perfectly capture these feelings in their most raw state.
“We Were Never Really Friends” is the first song in three years to emerge from the AWAL artist and demonstrates this skill as strong as ever.
“We Were Never Really Friends” is Bruno Major shining in every category, from the rich older R&B-infused instrumental to the song construction telling a story of love at its highest and lowest through subtle choruses.
The instrumentation is the most colorful attitude of the song. The piano intro accompanied by the isolated moments of psych-infused guitar rifts makes the song feel fresh out of the 60s, borrowing a nostalgic sound while remaining progressive in modernity.
The video itself is very charming.

It even adds to the overall concept of the song with the car motif eventually crashing towards the climax of the song.
“We Were Never Really Friends” is a strong introduction to Bruno Majors's new album cycle and with its melancholic outro playing out, fans can expect a more somber yet comforting experience to come.
The release comes along with a world tour announcement. Fans can sign up for the presale on Bruno's website here.
