Joshua Bassett Talks ‘The Perfect Gift,’ Announces New Single Release Date

Joshua Bassett is opening up about his new original song “The Perfect Gift,” which is featured in the High School Musical: The Musical: The Holiday Special.

The song will also be part of the show’s upcoming second season.

Tim Federle approached me in January of this year, when they were writing this next season, and he said, ‘You know, we got this song that Ricky sings and I would love if you personally wrote it yourself,’” Joshua said on GMA3. “So he kind of gave me the context of it, about how Ricky can’t really afford a gift and so he comes up with the song.”

“My favorite lyric is in the end of the chorus that’s, ‘This song’s the second best that I could do, and the perfect gift is you,’” he adds. “So it’s that kind of concept of that other person being the true gift versus any material things.”

Joshua also talked about his upcoming EP, and revealed the release date of the first single!

“My EP is coming out early 2021, but my single off of that is coming out January 14th, which is the first time I’m announcing that. So, very exciting, but yeah, January 14th people can expect a single, and then shortly thereafter my EP is coming,” he said.
