about

When I made this song I was very influenced by many Trap, Dubstep and Rap productions. Records by Diplo, Flume, The Weeknd or Kendrick Lamar. This song came up to life from a rejected demo I did for an advertising spot and the main goal was just to have fun making a rap song about feeling free, going out and smiling.

I wanted to give this song a very personal trademark and make it less predictable. So I decided to arrange it like a pop song, add pure R&B vocals in the chorus and, obviously, use sounds inspired by underground electronic music. I enjoyed it quite a lot.

The main rap part was written and sung by Zebulon, a really cool old school styled rapper from the USA. We also made some room in one of the verses for my good friend and super talented rapper Ryan Roush, who also collaborated on The Son With The Father’s Gun.

F.R.E.E. is probably the most radio friendly song from the whole álbum. For this reason I wasn’t sure about including it in the final tracklist but in the end, I felt it was essential to have a feel-good, summer-ready song.

lyrics

Let me testify
Bare witness to this
How certain
And instruments
Take me back to my Genesis
And now I feel like Collins something's calling in the air tonight
Got me prepare for flight
Spark electricity
to raise my Fahrenheit
Like I'm starring at the lights
On a Paris Night
Energy I store it up like a terabyte
When I gigging tunnel vision
Transmission of this wisdom
Through your system
I'm assisting with that grove and
Lifting ya mood and
Back up off the wall
To get ya shoes moving
To Drums relentless
And bass booming
I talk to the earth
While I walk on the moon and
Rub shoulders
With the stars
On the boulevard
Where the sun never sets
And there's no Tomorrow
No depression no regrets
I don't feel the sorrow
So if wanna be free
you can come with me

Chorus:
Can i get you to smile
Smile will ease the pain
Can i get you to smile (smile anyway)
smile anyway
uoh uoh uoh uoh uoh can i
Can i get you to smile
Smile will ease the pain

It's time to escape your day
Reset and press play
And let the stress fade
With all the problems
You ain't ready to face
Been running down dreams
You ain't ready to chase
Halt grind stop
That vault in ya mind locked
Let's crack the code
Unload ya thoughts
Now Unglue from the tube
Unplug from the drug
That the government is Funneling
I'm wonder when I get to where I'm headed while I bust down the door or just wander in
No paint just a story from my pen
No saint I was born a son of sin
If you're relating
Then were related
Sharing the same airspace
Lungs inflated
From one human to the next
Let the music reconnect us
So we can be free
Come with me


Chorus:
Can i get you to smile
Smile will ease the pain
Can i get you to smile (smile anyway)
smile anyway
uoh uoh uoh uoh uoh can i
Can i get you to smile
Smile will ease the pain
Follow me now
if you came to get low
I'll show you how
After the disco
then came the sound
created for those
who aim to get down
