Another Original Tune For ‘Glee’ Season Finale, Says “Loser Like Me” Songwriter
It seems that Glee’s use of original songs wasn’t just a onetime thing for its March episode, uh, “Original Song.” Savan Kotecha, who co-wrote the Max Martin-produced “Loser Like Me” (a #6 Billboard Hot 100 hit) for said March episode, noted in a recent interview that there’s more new material to come in the show’s Season 2 finale.
“We’ve actually done another song for the season finale,” Kotecha told Digital Spy. “It’s not been confirmed, but it’s for Glee.”
Savan once again worked with ASCAP Songwriter Of The Year Max Martin on the yet-to-be revealed track. “It was fun because I’m the only one out of me, Max and [co-producer] Shellback who watched Glee,” he said when asked about “Loser Like Me” and its success. “I was a Gleek in high school – I was in the choir – so I love that show.”
Columbia/Epic chairman Rob Stringer says, “There will definitely be new songs going forward, although not every week. We will spread the net as wide as we can as we go on to find people who are suitable to write songs for certain characters.”
So who exactly is Savan Kotecha, some Gleeks may be wondering. You might not know him by name just yet, but surely you’ll know a few of the jams he’s had a hand in writing:
Carrie Underwood – “Inside Your Heaven”
Usher – “DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love”
Britney Spears – “If You Seek Amy”
Adam Lambert – “If I Had You”
Are you looking forward to more original tunes on Glee, or do you like it better when the cast performs familiar music you can already sing along to?
