Electronic maverick Roosevelt will release new album ‘Embrace’ on September 22nd.
The new album is the producer’s first full length statement since his 2021 LP ‘Polydans’, which garnered a huge degree of acclaim. Expanding his sound outwards, Roosevelt digs deep for his new album, a musical cross-section of his life-long passions.
Out on September 22nd via Counter Records / Ninja Tune, the 10-tracker is available to pre-order now. Roosevelt teases his new chapter with lead single ‘Paralyzed’ which is online now – informed by lush early 80s soul and the dawn of disco, it overhauls these influences from a modern perspective.
A frisky dancefloor mover, ‘Paralyzed’ leans in to his melodic appeal, while also utilising the energy of Roosevelt’s surging live performances.
“During a writing session in Barcelona, I was heavily influenced by early 80s disco, especially its bass lines, and listened a lot to singers like Melba Moore or Gwen Guthrie – there’s something in these bass lines that is both uplifting and sad, which is something I’m always drawn to. Paralyzed grew from spontaneously playing a bass line, and when layering the rest of the instrumentation, I tried to give it that bittersweet feeling these old disco tracks have to me.”
Tune in now.
