In 2015, Guy Sebastian made Eurovision history, representing Australia on their debut. Three years on, his career is as strong as ever, with a wide repertoire of new music, from “High on Me” to “Bloodstone“. The Malaysian-born singer has released his latest single “Before I Go”, complete with a tropical lyric video.

“Before I Go” — Guy Sebastian

“Before I Go” is easy listening, showcasing Guy Sebastian’s powerful vocals. It doesn’t stray far from his usual brand of music, with a soulful and charismatic feel. The song has a message of perseverance and empowerment, as Guy sings the lines, “You thought that I was done but I’m stronger up against the ropes”. This is a man on a mission and we’re along for the ride.

The lyric video delivers the same vibe, literally taking us down a road adorned with trees. There are no bright street lights here, unlike Guy’s Eurovision 2015 staging. Enhancing the easy listening nature of the song, the lyric video gives the distinct impression of a casual Sunday drive.

“Before I Go” is soulful Guy Sebastian at his best.

The end of his career?

On Friday November 9, Guy posted a surprising tweet saying, “Today I announce my retirement from music. It’s been a great ride but I will focussing on my personal training business. More info to come. #DMmefortraining”.

Some fans were deceived by his message but others quickly pointed out that this was a dare from his appearance on the Kyle & Jackie O radio show. Needless to say, we are relieved to hear that “Before I Go” won’t be his last song.

What do you think of “Before I Go”? What do you hope to see next from Guy Sebastian? Let us know in the comments below.

“Before I Go” lyrics — Guy Sebastian

Just one more thing before I go
Before I let you take the throne
You go right and I’ll stay left
And if you ever get too close
You’ll know my name before I go

They loved me then, they love you now
But don’t forget there’s one more round
Oh the pain, I know it well
But it hasn’t kept me down
You think you’ve got me figured out

[Chorus]
You thought you had me
You thought that I was done but
I’m stronger up against the ropes
I am a, a fighter
Before this fight is over
You’ll know my name before I go

Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
You’ll know my name before I go

Just one more thing before I go
Before the final curtains close
There’s no telling what comes next
But these tired hands will show
You’ll know my name before I go

Just one more thing before the end
Know time has never been a friend
To the dreamer, to the lover
To the one who needs to win
Watch out ’cause here it comes
I say when I am done

[Chorus]

Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
You’ll know my name before I go
Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
You’ll know my name

Just one more thing before I go
Yeah!

[Chorus]

Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
You’ll know my name before I go
Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
You’ll know my name before I go
