Sophia Black Premieres New Song “fire”
- Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Sophia Black has delivered a new song “fire” via SoundCloud.
The song will appear on her upcoming EP "Hi, Sweetie", which is expected to be released in 2018.
The EP was preceded by two singles "Blessed" featuring LunchMoney Lewis and "Real S#!t" featuring Super Duper Kyle earlier this year.
"Hi, Sweetie" is her first EP since 2015's self-titled EP.
Sophia Black said of the song;
"The song is a sultry, self-empowering bop gift-wrapped with a ton of fire-related puns. I feel like we're currently in the age of hook-up culture, which is great, but for some people it's hard to find romance in the midst of all that. I wanted to make a song for those people to feel confident enough to know that they could be the ones to light the fire."
- The new EP is inspired by Sailor Moon, which is famous Japanese animation.
She talked Paper about the EP "Hi, Sweetie" in an interview;
"I thought it would be funny if I took that phrase and applied it to how I am in relationships. I'm usually the first to approach someone I like and I'll be pretty straight up about it from the beginning. I won't care about double texting or about texting back right away. If I want to talk to someone I'll just do it! I'm not the type of girl who beats around the bush until that person gets a hint or any of that. If I want someone, I'll confidently bat my eyes at them and say, "Hi, sweetie, I like you. You're cute. I'm cute. Let's kick it." This entire EP is dedicated to that sweetie in your life that got you up thinking at 3 a.m."
"I LOVE Sailor Moon. That really inspired the overall concept for Hi, Sweetie. Everything about Sailor Moon from the colors to the way it's animated is so delicious to the eye. Total eye candy. I don't know if this makes sense, but I wanted to make my music sound the way Sailor Moon looked: Cute, colorful, but also makes you feel empowered. Who wouldn't want to write music while watching a show about a badass celestial lady gang?"
