After what may be one of the gloomiest years in history, singer Nicholas Hollywood Tetreault has captured the mood of 2020 in his new electrifying electro track, ‘The Darkest Winter.’
Soon, millions – nay, billions – across the globe will gather and count down the final seconds of 2020, eagerly bidding this depressing this year the “boy, bye” it so rightfully deserves. With eyes cast towards 2021, it’s hard not to be cautiously optimistic that the next year will be better. Yet, there’s a foreboding sense that this year might still linger on for a few more months. This swirling quandary of emotions, of hope and dread, is woven inside “The Darkest Winter,” the new song from Nicholas Hollywood Tetreault. Co-written by producer Valentin, “The Darkest Winter” is a haunting electronic track, one that has Nicholas Hollywood — yes, his legit middle name — search for “answers in the blizzard of my mind,” about fighting through moments of being “solitary, cold and alone.”
“If there were some way to get past this gloom / To realize our ignorance may just become our doom / Maybe there’s a glimmer, somewhere out of sight /Or have we all been blinded by dazzling white,” sings Tetreault on the track, before launching into the chorus. “Falling snow conceals the past / Ghost of present fading fast / Could this be, could this be… The darkest winter?”
The inspiration for “Darkest Winter” didn’t come from the lack of sunlight during these cold months but a grimmer source. In May, Dr. Rick Bright testified before Congress, warning that the Donald Trump administration was unprepared for the COVID-19 pandemic. “Our window of opportunity is closing. If we fail to develop a national coordinated response, based in science, I fear the pandemic will get far worse and be prolonged, causing unprecedented illness and fatalities,” he said in his foreboding statement. “Without clear planning and implementation of the steps that I and other experts have outlined, 2020 will be the darkest winter in modern history.” After hearing those words discussed on CNN, Tetreault was inspired to create this new EDM track.
While the winter will be “dark,” the future looks bright for Tetreault. As we end 2020, this rising star promises more in the coming year. Nicholas will bring his unique spin on music in 2021. With a reverence for the Golden Era of Hollywood, admiration of the neon-soaked nights of the 1980s, and a not-so-secret love of the explosive pop culture of the 2000s (“The peak of pop culture,” he says), Nicholas hoping to lead a pop revival that synthesizes elements of the past and present to craft what he sees as the future of the sound. Helping him achieve this are close friends and collaborations, including noteworthy producers like the aforementioned Valentin and Titanic Sinclair. Though not much can be shared about the latter collaboration, Nicholas does say that fans can expect an “immersive entertainment experience,” one that fans can expect in early 2021.

Reese Witherspoon’s mini-me Ava has stepped out in a pair of ripped jeans a crop top for a lunch date with boyfriend Owen Mahoney.
Reese Witherspoon‘s daughter, Ava Phillippe looked like the spitting image of her A-list mom when she stepped out for a lunch date with her boyfriend Owen Mahoney in Los Angeles on July 27. Ava, 21, opted for a pink crop top and a pair of ripped, blue jeans as she styled her blonde tresses in loose waves. She also accessorized with white sneakers, oversized sunglasses, an animal print handbag, and layered gold jewelry.
Meanwhile, her beau cut a casual figure in graphic, tie-dye tee, black jeans and white sneakers. Ava most recently forced fans to do a double take when she posted a selfie of her and Owen, in which they totally resembled Reese and her dad Ryan Phillippe. “The bats were feeling shy…so here’s a pic of us instead,” she captioned the sweet photo.
The eldest child of the Oscar winning-actress wore a red polka dot dress with spaghetti straps. She styled her hair in beachy waves and opted for natural makeup for the daytime outing. “These two,” the Walk the Line star responded in the comments section, adding heart eyes emoji. Ava and Owen were first spotted together on the beach two years ago in Los Angeles, and have been going strong ever since.
Reese, who is also a mom to sons Deacon Phillippe, 17, and Tennessee, 8, recently told actress Tracee Ellis Ross for Interview magazine that she shares a special bond with her three kids. “My gosh, I’ve been crying a lot this week. I’ll have memories of my kids when they were little, or I’ll remember my favorite English teacher from high school, and I’ll just burst into tears,” she said.
The Draper James designer continued, “That makes me want to cry, the idea of having a long relationship with adult children. I never expected the kind of relationship that I have with them, but it’s so rewarding to be able to have kids that you can process life with a little bit, and they help me understand the complexities of what it means to be a human now.”
