Multi-faceted artists / composers Digital 21 & Stefan Olsdal (of Placebo) return with a brand new release ‘Multiverse’, featuring LA based vocalist / eco-activist Inanna.
Fusing cinematic, spaced out electronics over Inanna’s haunting, vulnerable vocal delivery, ‘Multiverse’ is an orchestral jewel that feels like a microcosm, layered with immersive classical strings enriched by subtle touches and epic compositions.
Inanna explains: “The Earth -this universe- is our home. It is what unites us all. Music can be witness, a spark for emotional connection, it can be activism itself and a powerful tool for change. My aim is to invite people to wonder, again and again, about all the beauty and mystery surrounding us, about the uniqueness of our experience on this planet, in this universe. This new single, made together with Digital 21 and Stefan Olsdal, two incredible artists who I have always admired, is an atmospheric and melodic poem dedicated to all the forces of the invisible, all the particles, the beauty and little things that make our reality and this universe possible. When I listen to this song, it reminds me of Keats and his famous verse ‘Beauty is truth, truth beauty – that is all you know on Earth and all you need to know'”.
Digital 21 & Stefan Olsdal add: “We love to work as composers for other artists. Inanna wanted an original song from us, a slow track with our orchestral sound. We worked on this song for several months, with many strings and many voices too. We wanted the song to rise little by little. It’s such a challenge to create a song just for one voice that you haven’t heard before. It’s a challenge and, at the same time, it’s a trip to other universes. Inanna lives in the USA, so we worked with her online. Mixing our parallel universes. The result is ‘Multiverse’.”
Inanna, whose own career has brought forth a series of environmentally-themed songs with her own signature ethnic-futuristic sound, has written the haunting melody and performs the layered vocals. Her warm, intimate, and dreamy voice draws us into the world of ‘Multiverse’, which is ultimately our own, governed by inscrutable forces.
Digital 21 + Stefan Olsdal have perfected the craft of polishing their electro-orchestral gems till they twinkle and fascinate each in their own way. Their composition and production make the song a stand alone piece of immersive music.
‘Multiverse’ is released out now across all digital platforms.
