Following on from recent singles Sign and Echoes, Cologne-based producer, musician and songwriter Roosevelt (Marius Lauber) has just announced his third album Polydans for release on February 26th via Greco-Roman / City Slang. Coinciding with this news, he also shares new track Feels Right. Listen below.
Lauber comments on the new track:
Feels Right is about a feeling of stoic empowerment. When I wrote the song, it began with an ESG-influenced funk loop, which even in its rawest form had something very euphoric and playful. It’s definitely one of the songs on the album that came together really easily – one of these where the song dictates which direction to go rather than you overthinking it for weeks
On making the album he adds:
It felt incredibly liberating to realize that I’m in a position now to go to the studio every day and just do the music that feels right,” he says. “In this respect, ‘Polydans’ is my most personal album yet, as there hasn’t been any creative limitations – I just did what made me happy.
