Hot-on-the-heels of his pulsing electro pop anthem “One Way Ticket”, Robert has revealed there’s plenty more where that came from, with his new EP ‘Severance’ set for release on October 7 across streaming and download outlets.
‘Severance’ sees Robert step into the big leagues, working with Gareth Shortland (Steps, Erasure) and Richey McCourt (Aimée, Erica Cody) to create a collection of songs that are laser-focused, both sonically and lyrically.
Speaking about his inspiration for the EP, Robert says: “I grew up in the ‘90s religiously collecting and analysing the music of the NOW! Dance Compilation albums, and this record reflects that sonically. The music you consume as a child and a teen stays with you always”.
He continues: “Lyrically, it’s almost conceptual, looking at how the past few turbulent years in the world have seen us sever ties in our lives – from friendships to relationships and even professionally. We’ve had time to think ‘is this what I want for my life’?”
‘Severance’ is a 25-minute immersive listening experience, presenting his three consecutive #2 LGBTQ Music Chart hits “Save You”, “Been & Gone” and “The Last Time”, all remastered especially for this project, along with some special surprises to complete the body of work.
