Albert Gold has today premiered his new video for the track titled ‘Want Me’. Old school soul meets the talents of a master musician and filters through that new and original feeling with a smooth way about it to become a slow and grooveful hit with visuals involving love, kinship, and family. This is what is important in life and ‘Want Me’ just became part of the soundtrack for that.
‘Want Me’ was the second song I made for the new ‘PATTERNS’ project,” explains Albert. “The song came quite fast actually – it was the first session I did with producers Banjimak, Lvcebrown and Galyam. I wanted to write a empowered song for me and everyone: last year was quite a crazy one after losing so many people, some horrible breakups and just losing normality, and it was amazing to see everyone coming together, especially my black queer friends. I wanted to celebrate all of that and us being back together.”Albert Gold
About Albert Gold
As you may have guessed, Albert is not a man to take sitting in a highrise at the end of the Lea Bridge Road in the middle of a global pandemic lying down. Last summer he released the excellent solo ‘MOOD’ EP, and later in 2020 he launched the effervescently chilled CHILI PALMER with David Gledhill, the man behind the Souls We Are project. Barely last month CHILI PALMER released the ‘I Love E9’ album, featuring the radiant ‘Cocktail Nights’ single featuring Gia Ford. Indeed, the ‘PATTERNS’ EP track ‘1LastPhotograph’ is culled from those CHILI PALMER sessions.
Bolstered by previous live shows for Communion, Tipping Point, BMI / The Fix, London In Stereo, Sofar Sounds and Good Karma, and backed by airplay support from Steve Lamacq, Huw Stephens at Radio 1 and BBC Introducing London, Albert Gold has performed at Red Bull Studios in South London and released the ‘London Calling’ single featuring covers of cockney classics by Coldplay, The Clash and Blur. He also features as vocalist on the multi-million-streamed ‘Trouble’ single by Dutch producer Bakermat.
