I wrote One Night Love to introduce a new perspective into the future of pop music. Sonically, I wanted to create something groovy- a sound that made you feel sexy. I wanted the overall atmosphere of the song to represent the feeling of a spontaneous love affair. The chorus represents the conscious protecting us from emotional heartbreak.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
I was inspired by the idea of new age love. Love is a universal topic. It’s something we all relate to. I wanted to focus on how love can be disposable in a world where one night stands have become so common while exploring human sexuality. In a digital age, we rely so much on technology, and the way we communicate has changed through that. It comes with a new set of emotions. With all of these mobile apps that match you with people, love becomes so accessible and in most cases becomes disposable. So, I wrote a song to question lovers whether or not this type of love would last beyond one night.
Can we expect a new video to go alongside the song?
We’re working on it! I’m currently creating ideas for the video. I am really passionate about creating the right visual to go alongside the song. I’m trying to make use of the tools I already have to create something interesting. I’ll definitely be collaborating with visual artists from Toronto so that will be really exciting to showcase. You’ll definitely hear more about a video soon.
What’s the story behind the title?
I think there can be a lot of different stories created with the title. I wanted to create something that everyone can relate to. When you listen to the song, your imagination will create a story of your own One Night Love.
How was the recording and writing process?
The recording and writing process took quite some time. I wrote majority of the song within one night, and continued to build and revise throughout a period of 6 months. I wanted to take some time on this first release and make sure all of the details I envisioned would be incorporated within the song.
How has fashion and technology influenced your music?
I took fashion as a major in college for a semester and became inspired to create music that went alongside with todays trends. Fashion has become a part of who I am and communicates where my mind is at in the moment. Technology has influenced my music in so many ways. Creating music today is quite different from back in the day. I want to represent a futuristic sound, and create a new style of pop music that people will appreciate.
Does the new single mean we can expect new material – how’s that coming along?
I do plan on releasing an EP very soon. I’ve been busy working away in the studio, and plan on releasing more music this year. One Night Love is just the beginning of it all.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
You will definitely hear more details on my social media soon. Follow me @ChrisGoldMusic!
Any plans to hit the road?
I do! I am training for that at the moment and will be on the road very soon.
What else is happening next in Chris Gold’s world?
I live a spontaneous life, there’s always something new happening. You will definitely hear more music from me soon. Right now, I’m getting groovy to One Night Love. I want to turn this into this years summer hit.
