Hot off the heels of Lightbringers and Shanghai Nights Switzerland’s Dreamshade just released “Stone Cold Digital”, the third single taken from their anxiously awaited new album “A
Pale Blue Dot” which launches on the next 5th of March 2021. In a World Of Metal exclusive for Portugal, you can see below the video for “Stone Cold Digital”:
The track which sees the band exploring new sounds was mixed and mastered by revered producer Jacob Hansen and features Italian singer-songwriter Rose Villain, much to the band’s excitement!
Here’s what vocalist & guitarist Fernando “Fella” Di Cicco has to say about the song and collaboration:
“This one is an incredibly special track for us. The music style is very futuristic and different from anything we have done in the past. A great mix of modern music styles in my opinion. It’s also the first time we have collaborated with another artist on a song and we’re super happy it’s Rose Villain, ‘cause we’ve been fans of her work for the last 4 years. She is absolutely amazing and fits perfectly with the band’s attitude and sound! We wanted to really push all our boundaries with this piece of music.”
When asked about the lyrical inspiration behind “Stone Cold Digital”, Fella explains:
“The song is about the obsessive digitalization of mankind: Our smartphones know everything about us, often more than we know about ourselves. They know our secrets, relationships & preferences. That’s why they quickly become our “best friends”, ‘cause they have the answers to all our questions. We go to sleep with our devices, and we wake up with them. We all know we have a problem with this but act like we can handle it when in fact we are doomed. Technology is in our hands and it can be the best thing ever. What we make of it is just up to us. The video follows the experience of a man from the 50’s that has being catapulted to our time and age. He just can’t believe his eyes.”
