Alex Amor Announces New EP “Super Sonic”, Shares New Song “Time To Smile”
London-based alt-pop singer-songwriter Alex Amor has announced her upcoming EP “Super Sonic” will be released on November 3, 2023 via Young Poet with the release of a new song “Time To Smile”.
The new project will comprise 7 tracks and includes the previously released singles “Wandering Eyes” and its title track “Super Sonic”.
The new song was written by Alex Amor and Bastian Langebaek. Produced by Alex Amor and Josef Page.
The accompanying music video was directed by India Roestenburg.
Alex Amor said of the song, “Time To Smile centres around the idea of realising that life is full of unpredictable moments. No matter what struggles you may be facing, whether it's a less than ideal job or relationship issue, it shouldn't prevent you from living in the present and enjoying yourself. I wrote this song when I needed to hear this message the most. I was tired of waiting to achieve my goals before I was happy. The song encourages me to dance and find a reason laugh in the here and now, rather than waiting for everything to be perfect before allowing myself to feel joy. The message is clear: if you hold off on dancing until your life is perfect, you may never dance at all.”
- The new EP follows up the 2022 EP “The Art Of Letting Go” and finds her unearthing the beauty in the world around her.
Also, it is inspired by American filmmaker Wes Anderson's movies.
She said of the EP, “The concept behind the creation of the 'Super Sonic' bus was to bring the essence of each song to life in human form, taking you on a journey through my music. Drawing inspiration from my favourite cinematographer Wes Anderson, I was captivated by his colour theory and his compelling character studies in his movies. Every passenger aboard the 'Super Sonic' bus embodies the story telling in my songs and represents different aspects of my personality. Within me, exists a whimsical, optimistic, and slightly peculiar side, and the 'Time to Smile' character reflects these traits. With each new song release, my hope is that listeners will not only connect with the music but also discover more about who I am and relate to some of the characters that accompany the songs.”
