Felix Cartal's ‘Mine’ with Sophie Simmons, privately a daughter of a KISS frontman

MUMBAI: A new single from Felix Cartal, which is a follow-up to his successful releases from 2019, such as "Right Now," "Over It," ft. Veronica and "Love Me" with Lights (the latter amassed over 17M streams on Spotify alone and is certified Gold in Canada). For the new emotive song Felix teamed up Sophie Simmons, who previously worked with the likes of Sam Feldt, Yellow Claw, and released on Casablanca, Ultra, Warner.

"In 'Mine' each verse is about a different kind of love. In Verse 1 we have being sixteen and your childhood, Verse 2 a post-college adult and, The Bridge is a more mature adult looking back. We wanted it to be folk-ish in melody and in production to emphasize the focus on it being a narrative, really story-driven. Finally, the drop melody is Sophie singing a clean sweet, melody, and it being distorted kind of like what happens when one looks back on memories. We often remember them differently as time passes." - Felix Cartal.
