W Hotels Worldwide is pleased to announce the latest release from their newest music initiative, W Records. Today, Greco-Roman/City Slang Recording Artist Roosevelt, the Cologne-based singer, songwriter and producer Marius Lauber, will release second of his two singles with W Records. The Fleetwood Mac cover of “Everywhere” was recorded in the W Sound Suite at W Barcelona and follows up his earlier release of single “Falling Back.” Roosevelt is the third artist to record for W Records, following last year’s tracks by Amber Mark and Perfume Genius.
“We‘ve been playing this Fleetwood Mac cover for few months in the live set now,” said Lauber, “and I’ve always wanted to record it properly. This was a great opportunity to do so, coming straight from the tour and still knowing how the energy of the crowd felt every night. It‘s an all-time favourite of mine and while nothing touches the original, I hope people enjoy my slightly different take on it.”
W Records is once again reaching beyond the music to support a cause that is important to both W and the artist. All W Hotels proceeds from the streaming of “Falling Back” and “Everywhere” will go to SOS MEDITERRANEE, a European, maritime-humanitarian organization dedicated to rescuing lives in the Mediterranean Sea. It was founded by European citizens who chartered the rescue vessel Aquarius in order to save people in distress in the Central Mediterranean – the world’s most deadly migration route. The organization’s four headquarters are located in Berlin (Germany), Marseilles (France), Palermo (Italy) and Geneva (Switzerland).
“We are continuing to push the boundaries of the guest experience with incredible talent like Roosevelt,” said Anthony Ingham, Global Brand Leader, W Hotels Worldwide. “With Roosevelt, we’re able to bring a track that has never hit the global stage to music fans and guests all over the world. It’s a privilege to support artists who are passionate about their work and the causes they support and to help make them heard.”
