A couple years ago, we took an in-depth listen to Colton Ford’s album Under the Covers. We were kind of harsh on album and well, that was that. Now on the verge of a new release with original material, his new single isn’t half bad.

Ford co-wrote the song “Let Me Live Again” with WAWA and Ray Isaac which was released today with b-side “The Music Always Gets You Back.” Ford likes his techno dance music, but “Live Again” is a somewhat inspired effort. It has nice texture and the lyrics are both sexy and sweet. Ford also gives some great falsetto. Check it out after the jump.

I wasn’t overly moved by the second song, but both are improved efforts from his last album. The beats are strong and dare I say, his vocals have gotten better. This now has me curious about his upcoming album, The Way I Am although no release date other than early 2012 has been mentioned. The album will also feature collaborations with Nervo, Chris Willis and RedTop to name a few. In the meantime, here’s the second tune.
