I’ve been great, thank you. I just moved to LA from NYC and its inspiring my work and play a lot.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “#Hypnotized”?
#Hypnotized is about the feeling you get when you meet someone and it just clicks and before you know it, your surprised by how naughty you are willing to seal the deal. #Hypnotized is a big song for me and I was inspired to make several remixes of it, all capturing the different tones of the same feeling.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
It was inspired by my ex-girlfriend and how we met in a New York City night club. I ran into the bathroom and started writing these lyrics down on the wall with my eyeliner and I took a picture of the lyrics and sent it to her. Needless to say, I got the date.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
I released the music video for #Hypnotized #SexDrone Remix on VEVO and I am proud that it has already received half a million views.
The single comes off your new self-titled album – why name it after yourself?
I decided to name the album after the place that I am in life. I feel bold and confident in my skin and that’s how I wanted to introduce myself, authentically Sterling.
How was the recording and writing process?
It wasn’t that different from writing gospel music. It always starts with notes and tones, which become a melody and the words channel on their own. I felt like I recorded this project while having an out-of-body experience.
How has Prince and Freddy Mercury influence your music?
Prince inspired me to own my sexuality and he challenged me to find the spirituality in sex. Freddy Mercury taught me to view music as a stage production. I was also influenced by their musical styles.
What aspect of your life did you get to explore on this record?
Sex plays a huge part on this record, but not in a nasty way, rather the spirituality and freedom in owning your sex and claiming what you want. This includes love and respect.
Any plans to hit the road and what else is happening next in Sterling Infinity’s world?
I am very excited that my album is being release on July 20th. I am focused on promoting my music and look forward to touring and meeting my fans in the future.
