New York singer-songwriter/producer Richie Quake has released his new track, “Cherry Red” today. The song is the final single taken from his upcoming debut album, I Want Some!, out June 29th. Watch the accompanying music video, directed by Josefine Cardoni, now below.
“’Cherry Red’ is the personification of everything that makes me feel alive but also is killing me at the same time,” Richie said on the single. “These things in life that destroy me can make my heart surge because of the pure power they have over my mind. The sensual and sweet beauty of a glimmering cherry, the raw power of a glistening motorcycle roaring full speed ahead ready to tear me apart. They both represent the glamorization and addiction to chaos and self-destruction. When it comes to the feeling of being alive verses being numb, sometimes it feels better to feel the pain than nothing at all.”
True to his ethos of bringing up the creative community around him, Richie wrote “Cherry Red” with close collaborators Morning Silk and Middle Part. This summer’s release of Richie’s debut album will continue to see the talent of his New York community on full display.
