Co-written with long-time collaborator and producer Alex Vujic, Phil Cook (Calum Scott, Lewis Capaldi) and Shaw, “To the Man Who Let Her Go” is a charming ode to Shaw’s wife’s past relationships. On this track, Shaw offers a more positive perspective on moving on from an ex. His heartwarming message is one of gratitude, both for his wife and toward her past boyfriends for letting her go. “It’s a different type of love song that reflects my appreciation for my wife and reflecting on how lucky I am to be with her,” he says. “Typically in a breakup, there are negative feelings after the fact, and I think in both of our respective past relationships we learned a lot and we’re lucky to have met each other.”
In the music video, directed by The Young Astronauts, Shaw performs in a train station as faceless people walk past him, the way people walk in and out of each other’s lives. “The men flying by in this busy train station represent exes – they float past and are just a moment of time in our story,” he explains.
The video release comes hot on the heels of Shaw’s performance at the Festival d’été de Québec. The FEQ draws in over one million attendees in Québec City’s historical district every year. Shaw also recently appeared in Ottawa, for Canada Day. The Chinese-Canadian singer celebrated Canada’s 152nd birthday in the nation’s capital with a performance at Major’s Hill Park.
To date, “To The Man Who Let Her Go” has racked up over 4.5 million views on YouTube and 5.6 million streams globally. “To The Man Who Let Her Go” is currently #7 on the Canadian Shazam Charts and Top 15 on the Mediabase Canada Top 40, Hot AC and AC Charts!
His most recent single, “With You” was a staple on Canadian radio this past year, breaking the top 10 at 4 radio formats and is officially certified Platinum by Music Canada. The French version hit #1 on BDS Charts in Quebec, and peaked Top 10 at Canada Top 40, Hot AC and AC. The music video has amassed over 17.5 million views on YouTube. Watch it HERE.
