The electro-pop/soul artist, Speelburg, is thrilled to announce the release of his debut album, Porsche, scheduled for release on September 18 via Kartel Music Group.
Today, he has released the lead single from Porsche, “When You Want Me,” an upbeat track about “cosmic longing.” The track sees the multi-talented artist handling most of the instrumentation himself, except for the brass played by his friend, Paul Silver.
The music video for “When You Want Me” was shot in his hometown of Brighton, England, with Speelburg in a matador costume, alongside footage from the running of the bulls in Pamplona.
Porsche is available for pre-order at all digital streaming platforms (DSPs) here and will also include an instant download of “When You Want Me” and album sales and bundle packages are available here.
In a press release, Speelburg talked a little bit about the writing process and about “When You Want Me”: “When I was writing Porsche, I really wanted to make sure I wasn’t just writing love songs or songs about grief,” shares Speelburg (Noah Sacré). “I challenged myself to write faster-paced, more urgent songs. My running playlist is all songs between 150 and 160 BPM, because each step falls on the beat and that’s something I had in mind when I wrote ‘When You Want Me.’ This is a song about cosmic longing, like when you find someone and you’re both linked through time and space. Be it love, infatuation, or friendship, I’ve got a few people in my life where it just feels like our frequencies are humming in tandem. Wherever we find ourselves in the world, it’s like no time has passed and we’re always available to each other, night and day and in any dimension.”
