Autumn (or Fall) is right around the corner, which means an explosion of colo(-u)rs and fallen leaves over most of Europe. It also means raking, Lots and lots of raking. But something else fell recently and that was a brand new Album titled “Dreamer” by a man who knows a thing or two about colors: Michal Szpak.
Accompanying the album’s release is a new single titled “Rainbow”. Follow that and you’ll find Michael Szpak standing at the end of it dressed in all gold. If that’s not enticing enough, then the lyric video finds Michael conjuring up the emotions fit for a beautiful slow ballad like this all the while staring intently at a ceiling mike. Of course the video also features plenty of rainbow tones such as light beige, dark beige and just plain old beige. Maybe a hint of orange thrown in there for good measure…Give it a watch down below:
But that’s just a small taste of everything. As mentioned above, Michal Szpak has let his imagination flow and dreamt up an entire album’s worth of new songs. Featuring both soft piano ballads like Rainbow as well as tunes to rock out to (and even a house remix), it should please fans both old and new. You can listen to the entire album on Spotify down below:
Tell me black or white…
When we last saw Michal Szpak in 2016, he was busy beating fan favourites at national finals by making us all wonder what the color of our life was (Turquoise, if you were wondering about mine).
He then arrived in Stockholm fully prepared to sing his heart out and dressed ready to join the rest of Captain Jack Sparrow’s crew. The juries were already too blinded by colors to get excited, but the audience fell in love with Michael and his voice, helping him climb all the way up to 8th place. If you are ready to examine one of life’s hardest questions once again, then you can do so down below :
What do you think about the new album? Does Rainbow stack up to his earlier singles? Are you hoping to see Michal Szpak return to Eurovision one day? Was that the worst opening segue in history?
