PEDRO BARBOSA Release New Single and EP 'JOURNEY TO REBORN'

By Press Release / News / Tuesday, 08 October 2019 10:21

Today sees the official release of PEDRO BARBOSA’s brand new EP, entitled 'JOURNEY TO REBORN'. PEDRO will be launching the EP tomorrow evening at The Atterbury Theatre in Pretoria, and also released the first single from the EP today, namely ’25 To Life’.

’25 To Life’ is PEDRO's first single release since his previous single ‘Crazy Love Is’ earned him the #1 spot for "Sing Your Heart Out / Love Songs" category and #2 spot for in the "Adult Contemporary" category at the International Songwriting Competition. The song was also nominated at the International Portuguese Music Awards in the "Best Music Video" category.

Inspired by separation and written from two perspectives of a relationship, ’25 To Life’ is about the idea of being committed to someone, but something went wrong and now you don’t know what you want anymore. The relationship collapses, but you still feel for the person although you know things won’t work out.

The single was the first song recorded for the EP in April 2019, with Mark Beling as a producer, and PEDRO describes the recording of the song as more experimental and adventurous when it comes to the arrangement of the song.

JOURNEY TO REBORN | THE EP

The new EP started over 10 years ago for PEDRO. Most of the songs on 'JOURNEY TO REBORN' were written a long time ago but were never released. Seeing as most of the songs have a special place in his heart, he decided to bring them to live in Mark Beling’s studio, with Mark also at the helm of production.

'JOURNEY TO REBORN' represents 10 years of PEDRO’s life prior to his debut album, 'REBORN' released in 2018.

“Making 'JOURNEY TO REBORN' was like clearing the closet. I went back to songs that I never released and decided well, I love these tracks, let me see if they fit into an album or EP. I called it JOURNEY TO REBORN as the tracks were written before the 'REBORN' album, except for two of them.” says PEDRO.

With a rock undertone underlying the new EP and some of the songs a lot older than the 'REBORN' album, the new offering still features elements of PEDRO’s debut release, combined with a newfound maturity in vocals and lyrics, and honesty in the delivery of the songs.

“I had to touch up the lyrics on this EP, as they were written long ago and in one case re-write, all the lyrics as only the hook worked. I also collaborated with Albert Meintjes on one song, which I don't normally do. Just to get a different feel and input sometimes adds a new direction to the songs.”
