The out country singer-songwriter and former sassy kid from School of Rock says “Just a Phase” charts a new path from his earlier work.

Out gay country singer-songwriter Brian Falduto follows up the release of his debut album Gay Country last year with the long-awaited release of “Just a Phase,” his new single which dropped on Friday, October 27,

The former child actor known for his performance as the sassy kid from Jack Black’s 2003 hit film School of Rock, Falduto says “Just a Phase” is a new direction for his work and creativity.

Gay Country was me trying to tie two things together that I was told couldn't go together: being gay and loving country music. Now that I made that statement with that record, I'm looking to show what else I can do,” Falduto says. “I think this song not only shows me in a different light stylistically, but it also showcases my vocal capabilities in new ways that I'm excited about.”

Falduto says his latest single is deeply personal, sharing the pain and invalidation of a past relationship.

“The song is about my first love – a college boyfriend who I came out of the closet with,” Falduto reveals. “The way he responded to our relationship ending felt invalidating to how I experienced it emotionally. I even began questioning the queer awakening we shared because of his gaslighting behavior afterward. The track still captures the 2000s country elements of my debut album Gay Country that I loved, while giving it some modern touches.”

Falduto says he wanted to get this single right, and gives credit to his producer, Brett Castro, for helping construct an artistically complete work.

“‘Just a Phase’ is actually one of the first songs I’d ever written but struggled with getting the production just right,” Falduto says. “Now with Brooklyn producer Brett Castro, it feels fully realized.”
