GOAPELE RELEASES HER SEVENTH STUDIO ALBUM COLOURS AVAILABLE ON ALL MAJOR STREAMING PLATFORMS TODAY
OAKLAND, CA (November 3, 2023) – Renowned singer, songwriter, producer, entrepreneur, and humanitarian, Goapele, returns with her highly anticipated seventh studio album, COLOURS. Released on her independent label Skyblaze Recordings, this eight-track opus is a testament to Goapele’s artistry, showcasing a blend of sensuality and emotional depth.
Hailing from Oakland, CA, Goapele’s diverse heritage and musical upbringing at Berkeley School of Music have served as the foundation for her compelling compositions that resonate with the human experience. Since her iconic 2001 breakthrough hit “Closer,” Goapele has continued to push boundaries, seamlessly fusing elements of soul, R&B, jazz, pop, and bass lines, all while infusing her ethereal voice with raw and evocative lyrics.
COLOURS features collaborations with esteemed musicians, producers, and fellow songwriters, including Bedrock, Chris Dave, Keyon Harold, Mike Aaberg, Marcus Phillips, Chris Johnson, Nate Mercereau, and Errol Cooney. Together, they create a musical tapestry that invites listeners on a personal journey through hypnotic melodies and Goapele’s captivating vocals.
The album’s themes delve into the concept of time, as exemplified in tracks like “Ojai,” where moments of ecstasy seem to suspend time, and the hauntingly beautiful prelude, “Time Heals,” offering a path to healing with each step taken. “Color My Heart” paints a dreamy love story of defying conventions, while “Need You” entrances with its addictive bass and intensifying vocals. “Enough” delves deep into feelings of inadequacy, while current single “Purple” (co-written by Lauren Evans and featuring Nate Mercereau on guitar) bares raw vulnerability in love, setting the tone for the entire album.
Goapele’s innovative approach extends beyond music, as she merges color tones, scents, and aesthetic apparel to create a multisensory experience for her audience. With a rare gift of synesthesia, she curates scented candles and apparel through her lifestyle brand Dreamseekers, enhancing the emotional resonance of her music.
With an illustrious career spanning two decades, Goapele has consistently delivered profoundly moving music, from her debut album “Closer” in 2001 to her 2017 release “DreamSeeker.” Her timeless sound has graced a multitude of films, television series, and soundtracks, solidifying her presence in the cultural landscape.
COLOURS is available now on all major streaming platforms.
