Andrew Belle released “Spectrum” earlier this month ahead of his new album Nightshade.
Belle once again collaborated with long time producer Chad Copelin (LANY, Ben Rector, BRONCHO), drummer/programmer James McAlister (Sufjan Stevens, The National), and fellow artist SYML who co-wrote “My Poor Heart” with Belle—the pulsing, driving love song that dropped last month in advance of the album announce.
With dreamlike guitar parts, a musing beat, and an otherworldly-sounding synth line, “Spectrum” hints at how relationships can intertwine with your mental health.
“This song is about using love and relationships as a way to cope with the difficulties of life,” said Belle on Twitter. “It touches on various aspects of mental health, including codependency, which I think is something that many of us were forced to confront over the course of the last year.”
“Spectrum” is a love song representative of the highs and lows that came with the tensions of quarantine. It’s an expression of the complex feelings of 2020.
Nightshade is out on August 20th and new single “Spectrum” is out now via all DSPs.
