Daniel Powter first gained worldwide fame when he released his mega-hit single “Bad Day” back in 2005.
Although he experienced some success with other songs such as “Free Loop (One Night Stand)” and “Love You Lately”, the Canadian musician has been off the radar for music fans in this region. Maybe that’s about to change soon.
Back in 2012, Powter told Metro UK that “Bad Day” provided him with great financial income but “it eclipsed me as an artist – it was such a big song. I’d be promoting it and arrive in countries and people would be like: ‘We’re already so done with this song.’ It took me a long time to get away from its shadow“.
It took a toll on him after he turned to drinking and drugs, before checking himself into rehab. “It was very lonely and I felt isolated. I was travelling and spending all my life alone in hotel rooms. You don’t always meet people with the best of intentions in the music business. There was a lot of attention but not all of it was real. It was quite dark. Some people deal well with it and I didn’t,” he recalled.
Thankfully that’s behind him and he can now appreciate what the song did for his career back then. If you can’t recall, here’s the “Bad Day” music video to refresh your memory:
Last year, the 48-year-old singer released his latest record “Giants”. Guess what? Powter is embarking on his Asia tour this month and he has included Japan and Malaysia in his pitstops.
