New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Today, Malik releases the latest color of his anticipated new project SPECTRUM (Demo), an exploration of a lifetime through the colors of the spectrum, out August 21 via ARTium Recordings. The latest color by the 24-year-old GRAMMY-winning producer and artist who has worked with Ariana
Grande, Earthgang, JID, and more is "Indigo," a shade of Blade Runner swagger in which Malik pulls himself up from self-doubt. On a project that's mostly reflective, "Indigo
" is Malik's chance to let loose.
Here's Malik on "Indigo
"After the crash, I pull myself up and remind myself who I am. Weʼre going to the
moon. All the things that broke me down didnʼt break me completely so I know I
have the strength to overcome - anything that steps in my way."
Previously released SPECTRUM (Demo) tracks include "Green
" (hectic and fast-paced with something to prove), "Blue" (a soft drift into an alternate universe), "Yellow
" (the project's sunny, refreshing highpoint). "Orange
" (the hopeful reflection the morning after), and "Red" ("A piece with much of the swung, post Sa-Ra soul that popped up on the internet in the height of the Tumblr era" - Pigeons & Planes).
Austin Chronicle has already deemed SPECTRUM (Demo) "a singular effort written, recorded, mixed, and even mastered by its conceptualist."
