2016’s SAMA Best POP Album winner, TRESOR, returns with a bang with his sophomore album, The Beautiful Madness which is due for global release this Friday, 26 May 2017. Ahead of his album drop, TRESOR has launched an exclusive listening session for all 5FM listeners only which entails daily reveals of never heard before songs which feature on The Beautiful Madness.
The exclusive listening session kicked off today on the Roger Goode Show with the single Wonder, and everyone is invited to join in on the daily listening sessions this week on 5FM just after 8am.
See below a preview in his own words of what to expect from TRESOR on 5FM this week:
Wonder: The feedback I have already received from the listening session this morning has been great! This song was inspired by the afro beat god, Fela Kuti! I had so much fun putting this song together… recorded in Cape Town; it’s full of life and really fun to perform life with my band THE LEGENDS 80.
We Never Give Up ft. ShotGun Fakes: This song was written and recorded in my lounge with Pam and Stef from The Arrows. It’s a different and fun collaboration.
Tidal Wave: This is a funky song inspired the big 80s synth of Michael Jackson and Billy Ocean. It’s a very fun song and really a favourite of mine on the album.
Midnight Sun ft. Hugh Masekela: I had an incredible time laying down Hugh Masekela’s parts for this song. What an honor to have him in this song…. I am madly excited about this collaboration and can’t wait for everyone to hear it.
Beyond Redemption: This was the first song I made for this new album and also the core of my new sound. I really studied African pop and disco sound for a while before heading in studio to create this new record. This was an indicator that we got something special. We also made a really made dope video for it that was shot in Cape Town and I cannot wait for people to watch it!
