Single #4 from #TAOML is uplifting “Free” by @CarlosdNobrega featuring @JVELmusic

CARLOS NÓBREGA featuring JVEL, “Free”

BANG! And the hits just keep on coming from TAOML (The Art Of Making Love)… as his fans just can’t get enough, “Free” is the 4th single from the recent album by Carlos Nóbrega.  It features a singer from Spain who’s new to me named JVEL, and, alternately sweet-voiced and powerful, he trades off vocals with Carlos like they’ve been singing for years together.  “Free” is a percolating and uplifting song where you can imagine a carefree upbeat evening on the town with your special someone.  It’s already got to #2 on Spain’s iTunes dance chart and the rest of the world just needs to catch up.  Watch the impressive comic book-styled lyric video above 🙂

WORLD PREMIERE: Spain’s @We_Architects meet L.A.’s Eddy Faulkner @Eddyftw2 for lyrical banger “Fire”

WE ARCHITECTS featuring EDDY FAULKNER, “Fire”

We all need someone in our lives who helps to keep us going to the next level at whatever stages in life we are at.  That’s the basis of L.A.-based singer/songwriter Eddy Faulkner’s “Fire”, for which I have its world premiere 🙂 He’s paired up with Spanish producers/DJs/remixers We Architects, who have recently dropped a number of remixes such as Robin Schulz and David Guetta’s current collaboration.  You’re on the right track if you might believe that this is a lyrical pop song set for a worthy transformation for the dance floor.  Though “Fire” is somewhat understated at the start, relying on Eddy’s voice and story to draw you in, the song is jump-started around the minute mark by We Architects’ engaging production ,which allows the song to take off in a direction you wouldn’t have expected from the beginning.  The balance of the music is so suited for Eddy’s expressive vocal, and “Fire” becomes a dramatic but touching celebration of the sparks in our lives that are often needed.  Add it to your Spotify playlist using the link above.

“The Art Of Making Love” is here and all for you, with love from @CarlosdNobrega

CARLOS NÓBREGA, The Art Of Making Love

After teasing you with four singles over the past month or so, “The Art Of Making Love”, the full length album by Spain-based Portuguese singer/actor Carlos Nóbrega, has finally arrived after years in the making to make it so special just for you.  Well the folks in Spain rallied enough to have it debut at #4 yesterday on iTunes.  And the rest of Carlos’ patient and devoted fans worldwide have been hitting up this blog to make posts about two of its songs, “You (It’s All About You)”, and “Love, Love, Love” the two most-viewed posts in the almost 8 years of this blog.  

It’s an album about the many facets of love and being in love, even in some cases still being in love after a relationship has ended.  But this is not over-complicated in the least – having fun, enjoying each other, and most importantly ensuring romance is always in the air for your special person.  

Beyond “You (It’s All About You)”, “Love, Love, Love”, “I Love You”, and “Set Me Free”, which have all been enjoyed in advance, there are 14 other songs in The Art Of Making Love’s deluxe edition which you can stream up top on Spotify.  Carlos has you covered for every kind of song that will appeal inside the pop and dance music genres.  Two of my other favourites are “Morning Sun”, a sizzling wake up call to love, and the energetic “Free” (featuring vocalist Jvel), full of joyous bounce.  On the softer side we have the long and luscious “Forever In Love” and the emotional bonus track “Letting You Go”.  “Up and Down” and “Fuck on the Dance Floor” are a little spicier, and Carlos even included my personal favourite by him, the inspiring and contagious “Music Makes You Lose Control”, originally released in 2012 and ever-deserving of a big dance video with lots of costumes.  Perhaps it will be reignited in some 2018 remixes?  Just sayin’….  😀

So do yourself a huge favour and wrap yourself up in the warmth and fun and most of all the love charged in the songs of The Art Of Making Love.  This is the massive start of much more to come in 2017 and 2018 and beyond 🙂
