Still raving from his recent release, accomplished recording artist FREEMAN continues the unstoppable momentum with a promising new album on the way lead by a catchy new single, “London Nights”. The first effort off a highly-anticipated sophomore album is possibly FREEMAN’s biggest hit yet.
Written by FREEMAN and fellow bandmate Jamie Brown, the new single is described as merger of nostalgia with the present, marrying retro vibes with modern edges. The lyrics follow the narrative of feeling isolated and alone in a city filled with people, until the perfect person comes around to help ease the pain.
FREEMAN on the making of “London Nights”:
“The opening riff for London Nights flew in from the ether and for weeks after we couldn’t stop singing it. Soon after that riff had arrived, Jamie had jumped on the stand-up piano in his living room and I was throwing out a verse idea which immediately stuck.
Lyrically, I wanted to capture the irony of the big city, a metropolis literally packed full of people, that can nevertheless remain one of loneliest places in the world. Meeting someone special in amongst the madness and the crowds can be tough. We’re all looking for that special connection. This song is about loneliness being replaced by joy; about a bad, mad world becoming much more forgiving upon making a special connection. A true friend. A true love. A song about overcoming fear and letting in the love.”
“London Nights” follows FREEMAN’s 2018 effort, Truth. Set to appear on his new album, Love,conceptually project inspired by the 60s and 70s free love movement. Encapsulates the bittersweet nature of romance and heartbreak. The new album is slated for a Summer 2019 release.
