Last month, we saw that premiered Alex Chapman’s “Worry” (written by Chapman himself and sung by the luminous Tiffany Baira) and if you thought the fun stopped there—think again. This morning, the latest installment of Chapman’s “Written by Chapman” project has come to fruition, and it’s a trio you won’t soon forget (namely, Chapman and two fellow Chicagoans, Keiya and Jeremiah Meece).

“Wreck” is about love, plain and simple; and the lyrics speak to a universal ailment (“I’m a wreck / when you don’t call me back” is something basically 100 percent of us can relate to, wholeheartedly). Brought to life by his partners in crime, Chapman’s lyrical mastery is once again put on display.
