Fred again.. reveals new song ‘Julia (Deep Diving)’

The new track is constructed around an Instagram post by songwriter Julia Michaels.

Following the release of ‘Jessie (I Miss You)’ last month, musical mastermind Fred again.. is revealing his latest song ‘Julia (Deep Diving)’.

Further exploring Fred’s self-coined “Actual Life” music - “a signature sound that sees him building tracks around vocals uncovered from the unlikeliest of sources; from obscure YouTube clips to personal FaceTime conversations, random Instagram accounts and iPhone video footage of half-remembered nights out” - ‘Julia (Deep Diving)’ was constructed around a heartfelt Instagram post by singer Julia Michaels.

“The most beautiful thing about this sample to me is just the tone of Julia’s speaking voice,” Fred explains. “It’s so heartbreakingly fragile but kinda playful at the same time. Like her voice literally sounds like the fizzy excitement of first falling in love. I’m so grateful to her for letting me build a whole new thing out of it.”
