‘Reborn’ brings forth a new sense of freedom from internal chains, while confronting all the negativity and darkness one has inside. The album is emotive in its own right, with topics about letting go of your past and moving forward, to having doubts in oneself and overcoming the odds. Bringing together a ballad background, while some tracks bring a more orchestral and epic gasp – the conception of depression, hope, despair and forgiveness comes into one. Inspired by real life events, David Angel takes his roots in poetry and combines it into some unique and different – with original tracks like ‘Goodnight Kiss’, transformed into a more epic journey, becoming almost a continuation of the original – the music transfixes on the idea of Hope.
“This, is in many ways a debut album, and Reborn truly is a psychological journey through the dealings of day to day darkness. From depression to reaching for hope, and falling short. I think we all in suffer from loss in some way or form, and this album was mostly set to let people know it’s fine, it’s natural, and you can recover. Reborn is an album that is first and foremost a story, rather intimidate. From the piano solos, to the emotive recollection of one’s past – Reflection and Recovering is the main theme of this project. This album has been in the works since late 2017, and it is the first of many beautiful projects to come. I’m truly proud of what it is.”
Reborn was created in collaboration with J. Oskar, one of Finland’s finest composers adding orchestral pieces to ‘Goodnight Kiss‘ and ‘Behind These Eyes’. As well, working with the incredible Jurriaan van (Jurrivh) on tracks such as ‘Fate No More‘, ‘What I Would’ve Done‘ and ‘Believe‘. The album was Mixed, Mastered, and Distributed by Prophecy Records.
