|It’s summer: the sun is shining, everyone is finally out and things seem to be getting back to normal. Time to focus on the beautiful things in life: hanging out with your friends and maybe even meeting that one person, whose love you no longer want to live without. That’s what Freddie Long’s second single ‘Addicted To Your Love’ is all about. With its energising up-tempo pop beat underlined with synth sounds, it sets the tone for the perfect summer soundtrack. LISTEN HERE.|
“I’m really excited to share the second single from my upcoming ‘Motions’ EP,” says Freddie. “This song was written over two years ago, which is crazy to think. It’s always been one that I’ve wanted to get out so to be finally release it feels incredible, and the timing couldn’t be better.”
‘Addicted To Your Love’ was co-produced by Freddie with Dane Etteridge and Anders Hojer. The collaboration combines Freddie’s current and early sound: Dane is responsible for Freddie’s first successful tracks from 2020 (‘Fade’, ‘White Waters’), while Anders produced the entire ‘Motions’ EP, including its first single ‘In Your Arms’ (over 200k streams), which was released a few weeks back.
Freddie adds, “It was great to work with both Anders and Dane on the production on this. Dane added a really nice live feel to the track and Anders then added touches to add the more electronic pop feel. It was a fun process to work with both producers and I’m really happy with how the song turned out.”
It will be exciting to see this next chapter of the ‘Motions’ EP unfold, especially since ‘In Your Arms’ resonated so well – not only in the UK, but also in Germany and Italy. The popular Italian Style Magazine profiled Freddie both in print and online, and the song was added to various big German Spotify playlists. In the UK, 78 radio stations added the song to their playlists, and Freddie was featured in the Daily Mirror, among many others.
Originally from Sussex, Freddie Long developed a distinctive sound which offers comfort, heartbreak and inspiration in equal measure with songs that feel like a revealing message from a friend. Issues of mental health are never too far from his lyrics, and he previously collaborated with the charity CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) when he write the song ‘Hope’ to help build awareness around male suicide, related mental health issues, and the benefits of being able to share your struggles. Freddie Long has quickly built a grassroots following, amassing a million streams each for his first two EPs ‘These Darker Days’ and ‘Blessed Or Cursed’ and then another million alone for his single ‘The Nowhere Times’.
