In true renowned SILVASTONE fashion ‘Born Again’ displays his signature multi-genre sound. This time round the multi-talented artist/producer/songwriter fuses his sweetly layered melodic vocals over a soulfully self-produced Afrobeats instrumental that evidently illustrates touches of his foundational influences - R&B, HipHop, HighLife and Gospel.
The single dropped last week Friday and was world-premiered by DJ Edu on his BBC Radio 1Xtra 'DestiNation Africa' show last week and is currently the station's 'Hot Shot - Track Of The Week" coutesy of the Official UK Afrobeats Chart Show with Eddie Kadi. Elsewhere its enjoying spins on KissFM, RinseFM, TraceRadio, SohoRadio, TheBeat, TribeUrban, etc. Its also already added on multiple official editorial playlists by AppleMusic, Tidal, Boomplay, etc and pick ups from several online blogs worldwide including GRM Daily.
The song's lyrics sing about how finding true love makes us all feel reborn. As he explains, “The song and its title is a play on words with multiple meanings. It's about a refresh. A rebirth. A renewal. Resetting and starting again. Whether that's life or love. And it’s appropriate in this now post-lockdown times where many of us like myself are picking up where we left off or starting afresh. It's a feel-good song and something I know we all need right now. And, as a man of God ofcourse there's nothing better than being ‘Born Again’. The song was recorded in my Croydon studio but was inspired by a trip I had just made to Ghana. It infuses the vibes and energy I had just enjoyed out there. Though it's a love song at heart 'Born Again' is also musically very spiritual and anointing in its underlying essence”.
The sultry vibeful 'Born Again' is packed with top-notch quality in every element - right from its intro to the fade-out. This is a finely tuned fusion of African beats, UK sounds and Global melodies from a renowned creative who played all the multiple instruments you hear and always delivers music to the highest standards. Its accompanying music video matches all these attributes and was directed by Eric Myers and filmed in central Croydon.
