Eric Reid (A Prince) is a rising artist that has just released a brand new track. This song is a track off of his upcoming, self-titled debut album, and it’s called “I Need You Closer”. This track oozes indie rock vibes, and it’s addictive.
“This song was originally going to be called ‘Hedgehogs Dillema’ which from Wikipedia: is a metaphor about the challenges of human intimacy,” elaborates Reid. “It describes a situation in which a group of hedgehogs all seek to become close to one another in order to share heat during cold weather. However, they cannot avoid hurting one another with their sharp spines. Though they all share the intention of a close reciprocal relationship, this may not occur, for reasons they cannot avoid. I changed the name because I think Hedgehogs Dillema sounds like the name of a song nobody would really want to listen to. Anyway, it sums up most of my relationships. But that is something I’ll figure it out eventually…”
We definitely feel that too. While we’re all figuring it out, at least we’ll have this killer song to listen to.
Their self-titled debut album will be out on October 21st.
