Kürzlich erschien Time – das Debütalbum von Singer-Songwriter und Produzent MIKKY EKKO. Exklusiv für Popmonitor hat der Amerikaner seine neuen Songs kommentiert…
WATCH ME RISE
It’s about knowing where you’re going and never looking back.
Cherish the moment.
LOVE YOU CRAZY
There’s a fine line between crazy in love and just plain crazy.
Dedicated to my lover.
I really wanted to write a classic love song.
You are a riot if you want it.
Sometimes it’s isolation that connects us.
We are going to make mistakes.
There’s nothing scarier than holding your lover and feeling totally alone.
PULL ME DOWN
I absolutely love the sound of this love song. It took Clams and me nearly 6 months to finish production, but sonically it’s my favorite song on the album.
MADE OF LIGHT
The stylistic diversity of the album was a conscious decision. To round it out, I wrote an uplifting pop song.
This is one of two songs I wrote with Ryan Tedder. We were pushing for darker chords with big melodies, and this is Loner is what came of it. It’s now one of my favorite songs to play live.
