Empty-Handed is a new single from artist Derek Lai, who claims the single was made at a “creative low point” for him. This is reflected in the song, which adopts a melancholy tone in the beginning and slowly blossoms into a more optimistic and uplifting anthem. The intro is mellow and somber, while the middle portion gets more and more lively and the last third of the track simply rocks. Derek sings with passion throughout, in a way that you can tell this is a deeply personal song. There’s nothing empty about Empty-Handed. This is a musically full and powerfully passionate pop song.
