Today, we are pleased to team up with him for the release of a new lyric video for the latest single, “Could It Be I’m Falling In Love”. It is a happy reinvention of the 1973 Spinners’ Motown classic produced by singer, songwriter and producer Caleb Hawley that mixes up a romantic retro sound with classic pop and 90s hip-hop.
As he puts it “I’m a Detroit native and a big fan of Motown, so naturally I love The Spinners. Reinventing this classic song and giving it a modern edge was some of the most fun I’ve ever had in the studio – the production process felt totally effortless. I’ve been covering “Could It Be I’m Falling In Love” for years and have seen firsthand that it’s one of those songs that never fails to make people really happy. Now, more than ever, I think people are hungry for that kind of music.“
