Bringing a new and meaningful rhythm to the forefront, Freddie Long announces the launch of his latest single ‘The Nowhere Times’. Passionate and life affirming, the new release encompasses raw instrumental and profound lyrics that will transport you into an alternate musical world. A powerful message is delivered through this expressive track that pushes the genre norm to new heights. The vocals work beautifully with the driving guitar and steady percussive beats – leaving listeners inspired to embrace new beginnings whilst accepting the errors of the past.
Inviting you in, Freddie’s signature vocal ability has a gravelled undertone to it, making you feel exactly what he is feeling – conveying a sensation that breaks your heart and for fleeting moments, puts a smile on your face. Sussex-born and at the epitome of the millennial generation, the DIY singer/songwriter is a true marker of talent and has naturally started to develop his distinctive sound and styling.
Touching on past love with the lyrics describing the inability to stop thinking about someone who you just can’t get over, the overall feel of the new single is emotive and powerful. Combined with the upbeat pace and liberal use of instruments the song generates a sense of optimism whilst hitting something deeper.
Working alongside producer and Grammy Award winner Adrian Bushby, who has worked with popular artists such a Muse and Foo Fighters, the ‘Nowhere Times’ is a single that you don’t want to miss.
Alongside producing melodic tracks, Freddie has also received accolades from Complex, Notion, Wonderland, Official Charts, TMRW Magazine, CLASH, Mahogany and BBC Introducing. He has performed live at The Great Escape, Sundown Festival and BBC Introducing Live. Labelled as ‘One to Watch’ from MTV for his previous single, Freddie Long is fast becoming the artist he was always destined to become.
“I’m really excited to share this track. I feel like it’s one of my most personal releases to date. Not only that it was amazing working with Adrian Bushby (producer), who really brought the sound out. It’s definitely a more live-sounding record compared to my earlier stuff, which I really wanted for this. Super raw, vocals, guitar, and drums. Was such a vibe recording this with the band and I can’t wait to get out and play it live with them.”
