LCAW – Hummingbird feat. Sophie Ellis-Bextor
Producer, DJ, and classically trained cellist & pianist from Germany, LCAW, released a new single called Hummingbird featuring Sophie Ellis-Bextor. I can’t get the song stuck out of my head. The simple, melodic humming from Sophie dances beautifully with LCAW’s walking bass line. Plus, the words are easy to remember…”hmmmmm hmmmm hmmm HMMMMM, hmmMM hmmmm HMMMMM, hmmmmm hmmmm hmmm HMMMMM, like a hummingbird.” This is a disco pop song that’s primed for radio. The single was released via Columbia Germany / Ultra Music.
Hummingbird is the first release off LCAW’s debut EP Meet in the Middle, set to be released in March.
Leon Weber aka LCAW blends elements of pop and dance to his productions, gaining support from major acts such as ODESZA, Martin Garrix, Robin Schulz, and Felix Jaehn.
LCAW sent a quote along with the single…
“Hummingbird is a very personal track with a more downbeat vibe, I think this is one of the main reasons Sophie instantly felt connected to it. Her voice has such a unique character and she added a whole other dimension to what I had made before we met. We had the recording session in a small studio in Notting Hill which hosted writing sessions for the likes of Adele, James Blunt and Lana Del Rey and it felt like there was a very special atmosphere”
“‘Hummingbird’ will mark the start of a fresh style for my music in 2018, a modern approach to disco & funk infused dance music and I’m very happy that Sophie is part of it. Putting together my debut EP has been an incredibly exciting time for me and I can’t wait for you to hear the results!”
Sophie Ellis-Bextor chimes in…
“It was great to work with Leon who I think is very talented. We had a brilliant session and I am so happy with the way Hummingbird has turned out. It’s always exciting making new dance music and I can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”
You might remember Sophie Ellis-Bextor from her #1 single, Groovejet, which was followed up by other big singles Take Me Home and Murder on the Dancefloor. Her debut album, Read My Lips, reached the #2 slot in the UK Albums Chart in 2001 and certified double platinum by the BPI.
