Brandon Coleman has shared new single + video, “Be With Me,” directed by Lauren Desberg as the latest from his upcoming album Interstellar Black Space out on the 20th of May via Brainfeeder. The album was announced with lead single “Blast Off” and will feature contributions from fellow Jazz artists Kamasi Washington, Ryan Porter, and more.
An LA-based keyboard maestro, vocalist, composer, Producer, arranger and “astral traveler”, Brandon Coleman is a member of the Brainfeeder family. “Be With Me” features stringed instruments (violin, cello, sitar) which create “a wavy, psychedelic feeling”.
Coleman further expands on where that sound derives from:
There’s a culture of music that I grew up with that I’ve always loved and it’s always spiritually spoken to my soul: the lyrics of The Delfonics, Four Tops, Manhattans…groups like that motivated me to want to write a truly inspired song. I wrote this in 30 minutes. We recorded it in one take. It’s soul music through the mind of synthesizers!
