Michael Love Michael New Released – Richard
Michael Love Michael is from NYC. The heartfelt new song “Richard” is about remembering the best memories of a loved one who they’ve lost. An Eclectic American singer-songwriter who makes heartfelt music inspired by every genre.
Michael Love Michael, the genre-blurring, independent New York City-based pop artist, returns with a new single, “Richard,” following their last release, July’s “Have,” a simmering folk duet with iconic rock musician, Chelsea Wolfe.
MTV called the collaboration “liberatory,” a song with weight and a “sweltering gloom punctuated by rage.” “Richard” is the next single from Michael’s upcoming second album, and was co-written and co-produced by Michael with Reuben Butchart. Its groovy, slick R&B sound is a departure from previous work, which has been steeped more in the alternative pop and rock genres.
The song’s catchy, “doing the butterfly” chorus is a reference to a childhood spent dancing in their living room to their grandmother’s favorite funk and soul records. The song’s video, capturing Michael’s joie de vivre, was filmed in Paris in July 2021, primarily in the city’s popular Montmartre area, complete with breathtaking views of the city.
Says Michael of the track, referencing Paris’ famous Wall of Love: “Richard was a very special person in my life who I did not take the time to know well. He was a profoundly lonely person. If I could say I love you to him in 250 languages now, I would. The point is: Give people you love their roses while they are here. Dance with them and take their picture. I regret not doing this while Richard was here, but this song is my rose to him now.”
He made the music video in Paris during his birthday in July 2021. It is the second single from his upcoming 2nd album, and part of a very diverse catalog of emotionally-charged music.
As an independent artist, He is seeking a label’s assistance with global distribution for this next project, which merges eclectic styles and sounds. He is hoping to connect also with bookers/agencies who can help him perform in Europe and represent him. Very ready for the next level.
