News Christian Alexander announces debut album ‘I Don’t Like You’
Check out new track ‘Waste Her Time’ now.
After making his live debut supporting Brockhampton in Brixton earlier this year, Christian Alexander has announced that his debut album ‘I Don’t Like You’ will be out on 1st April via Video Store.
Sharing new single ‘Waste Her Time’ alongside the news, Christian says, “ I was sitting waiting for my session to start one day, when I saw a video on YouTube about Paul McCartney and his Beatles songs.. It was really inspiring. I was introduced by Romil to a musician I only know as fedé, and we immediately gelled together and this idea was sparked. I wrote the song out in an hour or so, structured it, with the help from fedé with his knowledge of chords. It felt like anything I wanted he would deliver.. it was amazing. As I was writing it out, Romil layed this dusty, upbeat drum pattern on top of the piano, which was jarring at first, but after a few seconds I fell in love. It was a melding of inspiration from the three of us, all working together to create what I think is a cracker of a song. Later that day Joba came to the studio and orchestrated the backing vocals, which sound beautiful. It also boosted my confidence as a writer, it shifted my goals on what I want out of this songwriting career I’m trying to create.
“For the video, I knew something simple would be cool. I worked with Ashlan on this and we kind of made it up as we went along, choreographing on the spot. I took the reins as director and Ashlan was a great person to bounce off of.
“There’s no bullshit, it’s just me, which I love. I have great aspirations for future visuals, but sometimes something simple is all you need to get your point across.”
