We arrived at @kariconaway’s house at the end of the day, and I instantly knew it was going to be a good one, the singer said in a video of him singing an earlier song at a fan’s home. Initially, they had cats, friendship bracelets, and some fruit beverages. However, after playing the song about Autumn, I requested a tour, and when I entered her room, I discovered a piano. I declined when she asked if I could play, but I do occasionally sing along to “Wake Me Up,” so I’m doing it here for any Plus fans out there.
Added he. The official CD for The Fan Living Room Live Autumn Variations will be released on September 29. Go ahead and preorder, legends.”
