Josh Stevens: Hill Top feat Spencer Ludwig (Official Lyric Video)
The “Story of Summer” circles around a tumultuos romance with a fictional character named “Anna”. It’s a first person perspective to the rise and fall of a relationship. The setting of this love story takes place in the sunny beach city of Los Angeles, California. It follows Josh through different stages of extreme euphoria to the darkest lows of meaningless one-night stands. The album tells this story while still maintaining a sense of celebration with a high energy party song called Perfect Circle. The music is a mix of live instrumentation and electronic under tone. The first single is titled “Hill Top” and features Spencer Ludwig. It is best described as an epic upbeat anthem that is sure to get you singing along and perfectly sets the mood for the roller coaster love affair.
