News: Nathaniel Announces Debut Album ‘Yours’
(AUS) One of Australia’s most soulful singer/song-writers Nathaniel, has announced his long awaited debut album Yours, which is set for release on October 23rd through DNA Songs/Sony Music Entertainment Australia. Yours is a premium collection of 10 songs including four hit singles, and is available for pre-order now!
Written and produced around the globe in America, Europe and Australia, Nathaniel’s debut album is a guaranteed celebration of soul, funk, R&B and pop, fine-tuned for audience satisfaction and artist longevity. Delivering a fresh take on a timeless sound and reinforcing his talent and artistry, Yours depicts Nathaniel’s musical versatility at its optimum.
“People sometimes refer to me as an ‘old-soul’, so we wanted to make sure we kept that soulfulness, but twist it together with a modern-day sound,” Nathaniel explains. “The majority of songs on the album such as ‘Live Louder’, ‘Flava’, ‘Animals’ and ‘Addicted’ all have that throwback soulfulness to them but it’s been given an update for a fresher, more contemporary feel.”
The album features input from the likes of US musician/producer David Ryan Harris (John Mayer, Guy Sebastian), Swedish producers Arnthor & Lukipop (Janet Jackson, Britney Spears), Louis Schoorl (Jessica Mauboy), and Stylez Fuego (Peking Duk), with the bulk of material overseen and created by renowned local song-writers and producers Anthony Egizii and David Musumeci from DNA Songs (Guy Sebastian, Delta Goodrem, The Veronicas), alongside Nathaniel.
On Yours, Nathaniel demonstrates his ability to express himself more completely then previously, by varying the mood of the music from familiar up-tempo-pop territory, to more emotional reflections.
“The album covers the themes of love, relationships and break-ups, but it also covers being yourself, and being inspired and confident enough to make the right choices in life. I think it covers a broad spectrum of lyrical ideas and in doing that I think it shows my versatility as an artist. For me, all these songs have their own particular story and sound. I wanted to make sure that I created an album in which every song was different, and I think we achieved that.”
