Michael Seyer Releases New Single “Heaven Only Knows”

Michael Seyer shares “Heaven Only Knows” via FLAUNT, the second single from his upcoming Nostalgia EP. Check out the premiere hereNostalgia is out on November 8th via Caroline.

Regarding “Heaven Only Knows,” Michael stated “This song is special to me for a lot of reasons. I’ve wanted to write a Bossa Nova song for a while now. A lot of different types of Bossa Nova inspired this song, of course Joao, but also other artists like Masayoshi Takanaka and Yukata who created a sort of Bossa Nova/Funk fusion. This was also the first song I wrote for the EP and I ended up working with a lot more people than I usually do. I’m pretty isolated when recording but I wanted to step out of my comfort zone; I started working with my bassist/saxist, Okay Kaya, and even got my friend Marine to say something in Japanese and that sort of set the tone for working with others on this project. I also hold this song very special because I think it is really an accurate description of my perspective on love. This song was actually a poem I wrote before anything else and when I couldn’t find any words, I revisited my old poetry and found a poem, “I Don’t Believe in Heaven,” and adapted it for the song.”
