“The Music Making Love To Me”
PREMIERE = Sunday Feb 23rd @ 5PM GMT
NEW SONG NEW SONG NEW SONG!
The Music Making Love To Me is such a chilled out song. John-John (a singer I have frequently collaborated with recently) watched some youtube videos and showed me a video of a live performance by Erykah Badu. I had never heard of her before and I am now ashamed to admit that. Her riffs, her free-styling, the carefree behaviour she exhibited on stage was extremely inspiring – ergo The Music Making Love To Me.
Months ago I favourited a track called One For Kennedy by Evil Needle on Soundcloud, not having the intention to write lyrics to this instrumental – I simply genuinely loved the vibe of the track. I frequently listen to ALL my favourited tracks on Soundcloud and after hearing Erykah Badu’s live performance and stumbling across One For Kennedy again? – The melody for The Music Making Love To Me was conceived… but I didn’t have the lyrics or message in mind yet.
How the lyrics were written? Simply based on how I was feeling that night.
Suffocated.Stagnant.Self-Conflicted.Passionate… and a little outraged – let me explain. There are many times whilst writing a song that I’m not fully genuine with my lyrics – I’m not expressing the raw emotion that I’m feeling. My lyrics are usually conditioned, processed, then reprocessed because I am so fearful of what people will say when they hear it – with The Music Making Love To Me I put my foot down. You won’t believe the amount of times I tried to change the title of the song and the lyrics within the chorus, FEARFUL of what certain people would think, or how they may judge me.
To answer your question, no, I do not make love to music, however the concept of how two people make love – TWO BECOMING ONE – that’s exactly how it is with music and “Danderson” now. We are together and cannot be spiritually, mentally or emotionally be separated, regardless of anyone’s attempt to do so.
STAY TUNED FOR THE PREMIERE OF THE MUSIC MAKING LOVE TO ME (Sunday Feb 23rd @ 5PM GMT)
