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 🙂

“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 🙂

Needed all around the world today: “Love Love Love” by @CarlosdNobrega

CARLOS NÓBREGA, “Love, Love, Love”

It’s the fourth taste from Carlos’ pop album The Art Of Making Love, due on Friday August 25, and like with its predecessor singles “Set Me Free”, “You (It’s All About You)” (whose recent blog post has had over 18,000 views!), and “I Love You”, “Love, Love, Love” is a song for everyone because we’ve all experienced love of some kind in our lives.  It can be pretty contagious and it’s what’s needed most in the world today, as many other songs currently cry out for love and unity as well – but you also have to desire it.  Carlos was on to it first as these songs have been awaiting release for a while now – and the time for these songs and The Art of Making Love is, impeccably, upon us 🙂  I particularly enjoy the subtle urgency of “Love, Love, Love”, highlighted from some lovely piano notes, never going over the top and letting you embrace its message in the end.  Watch the simple elegance of the lyric video at the link above and pre-order The Art of Making Love from your favourite digital store so that you have it on release day 🙂

In tandem with The Art Of Making Love, Carlos is releasing a highly personal soundscape of sorts that will appeal to lovers of movie soundtracks and lush instrumentals.  You can preview his Almageddon project by listening to “Almageddon: #Madeira” below, and revel in the awesome scenery of the homeland of Carlos Nóbrega, a Portuguese archipelago off the coast of Morocco.

.@CarlosdNobrega makes you lose control again with propulsive Europop of “You (It’s All About You)”

CARLOS NÓBREGA, “You (It’s All About You)”

Before we head into more new music from Carlos Nóbrega’s second project ALMAGEDDON, he offers us the third single from The Art Of Making Love, “You (It’s All About You)”, following “I Love You” – whose blog post here is just shy of breaking an all-time views record – and “Set Me Free”.  It’s propulsive, almost cinematic europop that’s intended to shake up the speakers and make you lose control all over again.  The heartfelt lyrics genuinely kick the song up two notches, and the folks in Spain have been already loving it on their iTunes chart.  The rest of Europe – and maybe North America too – needs to get on board with “You (It’s All About You)” and I also think it’s deserving to consider for remixes to take it further into dance club territory.  Give it a solid listen up top and then pick it up on your favourite digital platform.

How can there be an art of making love without saying “I Love You”? @CarlosdNobrega reveals all


Your second taste of “The Art Of Making Love” by Carlos Nóbrega comes in the form of the mid-tempo pop/dance ballad “I Love You”, following the recent lead-off “Set Me Free”.  Because those very words are in fact the deal-sealer, a song about saying I love you always has to be committed and passionate, and I can’t think of anyone better to convey the importance of the message than Carlos.  With an elegant and sophisticated arrangement, it sometimes boils down to a simple chorus to tell all and make you think more about the special person in your life as well as anyone else to whom you show affection.  There’s more coming with the official release of “The Art Of Making Love” as well as Carlos’ second upcoming project “Almageddon”.  Watch the lyric video for “I Love You” above.
