From Sam: The limitless single, is a
4-song 5-song digital preview of the These fleeting moments album. Only one song is from the upcoming album, actually, the rest are special to this release.
Picking up Blacktape’s classic 90s darkwave sound; original vocalist Oscar returns on their 30th anniversary.
As is common with singles, the “catchiest” song is the focus. “Limitless” is modern darkwave rock, with a bit of an 80s or 90s throwback sound and existential lyrics about our potential. “Alaska” is a different lyric/melody, written around the same backing track! To balance things stylistically, the single begins with “quien you soy” which is representative of the moody and contemplative sound of much of the new album. It is the first part of the 17-minute “vastness of life,” translated and sung in Spanish.
At the last minute, I decided to include an exclusive track that will not be at iTunes or Amazon or streaming. Something special for everyone who purchases direct from Projekt’s Bandcamp page. Over the weekend I did an alternate mix of “limitless,” Oscar made suggestions to make it even more sparse! This is the bonus fifth track, focusing on the vocals and acoustic guitar, with some nice elements of the other instruments swirling around.
If you already ordered the single elsewhere, you can download just “limitless (stripped) at name-your-price: Hover over the 5th track, choose “buy track,” click “Buy Now” on the next page and put in zero. That gets you the song.
A five song single?
I know, I know. This release has 5 tracks, why is it called a “single?” A single has 2-tracks, right?
That’s what they suggested it be called.
Who is “they?”
Well, that’s interesting! I’ve decided to release the new Black Tape For A Blue Girl album in collaboration with Metropolis Records. It seems like a good time to mix things up and try something different: work together with another label to get my music to new listeners. I am very excited to see what happens
Metropolis will release the CD for retail stores, overseas, and digital; Projekt presents the deluxe CD and double-LP. The limitless single digital-only release is out July 22, These fleeting moments CD & digital out August 12. The vinyl will be out near the end of the year
