move me _ lewis ofman & carly rae jepsen
Carly Rae Jepsen has joined producer Lewis OfMan on a new single called "Move Me".
Discussing the collaboration in a statement, Jepsen said: “In Sept of 2020 I heard about an artist named Lewis OfMan. A friend sent me a playlist and I kept pausing at the same track of Lewis’s thinking “this is really good.” The world was upside down so there was extra time to really listen to music and then ask questions like “who made this and how can we be friends?” Lewis has really been the silver lining of my last two years when touring wasn’t possible and travel was just a dream. On top of that, he has one of my favourite male voices. I can’t wait for you to hear our first collaboration after such a long wait.”
Lewis added: “Carly & I met and worked in a really modern way, I received a call from her and I was honoured that she liked my music in such a genuine way. Our relationship was Zoom-ed quite fast and we became close friends and these sessions almost felt like a shared diary, where we were sharing our stories.”
“While I was living in Florence I had this special party where I found my heart shaken up by someone, I remember these insane blue eyes, but destiny wasn’t OK for us to pursue each other, we were stuck in our own lives and couldn’t mix them,” he continued. “The day after I wrote Move Me… I was full of passion and dreams, and wanted to scream it out to the world. I had a session with Carly the same night, she instantly felt the song and sent me recordings of her beautiful voice and some additional ideas – it just made so much sense to do this duet together, it’s such a beautiful encounter. Now, enjoy this track & we hope it will resonate through your life.”
"Move Me" follows Lewis OfMan’s recent single, "Nails Matching My Fit", featuring Shanae. Carly Rae Jepsen returned earlier this year with "Western Wind". ourculturemag
