Lemonade Baby is already off to a solid start to the year with two great new singles under his belt – ‘Electric Girl’ and ‘i blocked ur account’ – and he’s coming back to us this week with his latest offering ‘Alien’ which he says was inspired by the classic Alien movies and has been influenced by the likes of Kid LAROI, Justin Bieber, Chris Brown and the illustrious *NSYNC!
“Alien was inspired by the ‘Alien’ movies, rewatching them sparked the idea of what it’s like to be with someone and watch them switch to almost another person, much like ‘being with an alien’. I feel everyone has experienced that with a friend or past love.
Originally *NSYNC’s ‘Its Gonna Be Me’ and ’STAY’ by Kid LAROI were both musical references for this one, however after reworking the project it started to sound more like Chris Brown and Tory Lanez (R&B) meets Justin Bieber (Pop).
I’ve been trying to practice restraint with my song writing process. It’s so easy to keep adding new ideas but then it’s hard to know when to stop adding them as well. The original demo for this one was rather intense. It had layers upon layers of instruments that ended up creating a wall of noise. It was unusable so I stripped it back down to its core, Rick Rubin style, and now all you can hear is guitar, vocals and the rhythm. That’s all ya need!” – Lemonade Baby
