James Reid recently released his latest album, lovescene:, the second after he launched Palm Dreams five years ago.
The album is described as an exploration of the cycle of life and death that exists within romantic relationships. It has 10 tracks produced locally and internationally, and features globally-renowned producers such as The Stereotypes and foreign artists such as Woosung from The Rose and Destiny Rogers.
According to Careless Music, an independent record label founded by Reid, “Ever since he joined showbusiness almost 12 years ago, James’ relationships have been at the center of local, and eventually global, media’s interest. This fascination with his love life has created a lot of misconceptions about who James is when it comes to his intimate relationships. And now for the first time in his career, James is choosing to end all false speculations by facing the hot topic head-on by turning his sentiments on the topic of love into an album.”
The first song from the album, “u & i,” sparked controversy when photos of Reid and model Kelsey Merritt together spread online. It turned out to be the cover art of the song. The model is also featured in the song’s music video.
Careless Music adds, “[James] expresses a deeper, more vulnerable, and romantic side to himself than what he usually reveals to the public. Stepping away from his life in showbusiness to focus on his musical craft has become evident through his work on lovescene:. The essence of the album is embodied in its soulfully produced tracks accompanied by James’ raw and sincere lyrics that take the listener through the highs and lows of intimacy and romance.”
Some of the songs from the album include “cali loving,” “always been you,” “hold on tight (feat. woosung),” and “lie to me (feat. destiny rogers).”
lovescene: is available on all major streaming platforms accompanied by one visualizer per song.
