Discuss your next project.
We currently have started working on my new songs with Yasemin Özler; who also produced ‘Way Out’.
I like pushing my limits and surprising my audience, therefore my new material will include elements I haven’t used before, but still having traces of me.
I believe the power of collaborating with other musicians, and I feel like we will create some new work with Yasemin that will be exciting, which already does to me.
Silence took me this time
Sirens keep on luring my head
I close my eyes and sail inside
I’m no longer afraid of the nights at the far seas
But I still don’t say no to a companion
Lean into the night
It won’t take long to find a land
Where we can start over again
Make my hands write for it this time
Lean into the light
Tell no more exceptional lies
In your way of playing your part
Show me a way to stay beside
The fire reached out his hand and touched my heart
Don’t ever put words in my mouth, I shout out
I still find myself crawling away in some strange mess
But I’ll keep on trying to find a way out
