Mixed and produced by Golden Vessel.
There are few artists that I know that have made such an impact with such little music. While he has been featured in other artist’s music, today, Australian musician Emerson Leif shared his third release, the smooth “Wake up with You.” It follows 2018’s “Twenty2” and the wildly popular “Hesitate.” Like his first two, this song features some signature production from one of Leif’s close friends and one of my favorite new artists, Golden Vessel. With the release of “Wake up with You” also came word of Leif’s debut EP, which we’ll be on the lookout for.
Emerson Leif had a bit to say about the song, noting: “‘Wake Up With You’ is an expression of how life-giving a significant person’s presence in your day can be. To reach out from a dreamscape of sleep and feel the touch of a familiar hand. The seemingly simple experience of waking up next to someone that ‘just gets you’ is in itself both cathartic and regenerative.”
The song is an exploration into the time in Leif’s life where he was focusing more on the “grind” or, how he puts it: “I was working for the man on night shift a few years ago and would get home when the sun was already high in the sky. The experience of not being able to share that time with someone brought a clarity to the value of something that I had in the past taken for granted. ‘Wake Up With You’ has been burning a hole in my laptop since then and is the first single of an upcoming EP that I am excited to share in the coming months.”
