Simon Hassle releases second single "In Your Song" as a tribute to Nelson Mandela
Simon Hassle releases his second single "In Your song" as a tribute to Nelson Mandela. "In Your Song" is about realizing that we all as individuals can play an important role.
Simon has despite his young age chosen a serious political and social content in his music. He says he wants to include important issues that concern people in his music. His lyrics are about the environment, leadership and values.
"The song is inspired by the story of Nelson Mandela, but is actually dedicated to all people, that like Mandela, are trying to create a positive change. In Your Song is a reminder that, despite bad things happening around us, there are at the same time a lot of people around the world that are doing good and trying to change things for the better. I think it's very important to realize that we all as individuals can make a difference," says Simon Hassle.
In Your Song is made in near cooperation with the song writer and producer Emanuel Olsson, Cosmos Studios in Stockholm, Sweden. Together they are now working on Simon's first album that is planned to be released later in 2011. Earlier this year his first single "Now is Here" was releases featuring Chief Oren Lyons.
"I want to make music with an important message in a way that can reach a large and young audience, and it has to be great pop at the same time", says Simon Hassle.
