Roosevelt announces self-titled debut album
After years of touring and DJing in and outside of Germany, Roosevelt announces his self-titled debut album will be released on August 19th via Greco-Roman / City Slang records. Coinciding with this news, Rossevelt released a video featuring two of the album’s tracks, Colours and Moving On.
Colours stars Roosevelt alongside various characters in an abstract exploration of the five senses. The transition into Moving On follows him walk into an everyday street scene, where he find himself lost in the sensory overload of real world modern life.
There is definitely a strong 80s influence to Roosevelt’s electro-pop, that much is also clear from the album’s artwork. The album was written, recorded and produced by Roosevelt himself over a period of two years.
