Nashville, TN (February 25, 2022)
Platinum-selling Christian music artist Tauren Wells has released his new single, “Fake It” featuring Aaron Cole, via Capitol Records/CCMG, marking the 10-time GRAMMY nominee’s first release on the label. On this upbeat, infectious track Wells celebrates the joy that comes from being loved as you are, freed from any need to “fake it.” Wells and Cole wrote “Fake It” with Chris Stevens–who produced the track with Tedd T.–and Emily Weisband.
In the official video for “Fake It,” Wells gives a high-energy performance alongside Cole and a growing troupe of blazer-clad dancers. They shot the clip in Los Angeles with producer Raj Kapoor, who recently helmed Adele’s CBS special, and director Noah Clark. The Capitol/CCMG team was on hand at the video shoot to welcome Houston-based Wells to the label.
“Hold Us Together (Hope Mix),” Wells’ 2021 duet with H.E.R., is nominated for a GRAMMY Award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song and an NAACP Image Award in the Outstanding Gospel/Christian Song category. Wells’ 2021 album, Citizen of Heaven (Live), received a GRAMMY nod for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album.
