Emerging singer Speelburg on Friday released his debut album Porsche.
The vibrant, 11-track project is out now on his own Sophomore Slump label in partnership with Kartel Music Group. It finds the singer demonstrating a blend of indie-rock with colorful, electro-pop, drawing influence from the likes of Vampire Weekend and Beck.
In addition to the new album's release, Speelburg has also shared a video for his song "Gwyneth (Get Up!)," which is named after Gwyneth Paltrow, of course, and is featured on the newly released record.
“I’ve stared at this ‘PORSCHE [MASTERS]’ folder on my desktop, watching it gather digital dust, at times thinking ‘maybe I shouldn’t put it out, maybe I should just throw the computer over the balcony Zoolander-style,'" he says. "I’m so glad I didn’t. It took me 2.5 years to write my debut album and make it the album I would have wanted it to be had I not made it."
He adds: "I’ve crammed every pore with memories of my family and friends, this record is as much for them as it is for me. If I never make another album, I’m damn glad this is the one I got to make. It’s loud, it’s colorful, it’s a celebration of all the music and people I love so I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it.”
