Franco-British artist blends searing synths & guitars on stunning new single
Albert Newton‘s latest single, “Fell Off,” takes us on a mesmerizing sonic voyage, reminiscent of the unpredictable nature of balancing on a bicycle. While not a song about cycling, it evokes the idea of perpetual motion and the fear of stagnation that often governs our choices in life.
This track, a dreamy and cinematic masterpiece, serves as a triumphant return for the Franco-British artist. Produced by Max Baby, “Fell Off” marries a tender serenade with searing synth elements, showcasing Newton’s creative prowess as he delves into the depths of his own experiences.
The chorus lays bare Newton’s inner turmoil with raw vulnerability, as guitars churn and synths swell, enveloping his tender vocals. “You must be broken too if you can’t see that I’m hurting,” he confesses, laying his emotions bare.
As the lead single from his upcoming debut album, “Fell Off” offers a tantalizing glimpse into the celestial exploration that awaits listeners, all while staying grounded in the realities of life. It’s an emotionally charged and intimate musical odyssey that is sure to resonate deeply with its audience.
“The song was written in London, a few months after leaving Paris for the first time in nearly ten years,” Newton shared. “It started as an apology letter I wanted to write to someone I’d had to leave at the start of this new chapter and then turned into a reflection about how my more metaphysical ambitions seem to mess up or challenge my more down-to-earth ones.”
