Kasabian mastermind Serge Pizzorno takes a break from his day job with an incredibly exciting new track featuring Little Simz. ‘Favourites’ is an explosive, song that is dangerously addictive.
With music by Serge and lyrics by Serge and Little Simz, ‘Favourites’ is a breath of fresh air and the good news is, it’s just the first taste of a new side project destined to please fans old and new. ‘Favourites’ had its world premiere last night on Radio 1 as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record.
The S.L.P – as it is called – is a new project by Serge Lorenzo Pizzorno, Kasabian’s guitarist and songwriter. This debut solo album created during a one year hiatus from Kasabian, sees Pizzorno channel his artistic instinct to create an exciting and unexpected updated self-portrait.
“’Favourites’ is about identity in the digital age,” Serge says. “I was interested in how online dating is a sort of snapshot of this identity crisis. Through the speed and structure of the song, I wanted to capture the feeling of the real you inside your head trying to get out and escape during a first date. It’s a dialogue between two people who are coming to terms with their true selves through their digital interaction becoming a physical one.”
As for Little Simz, Serge admits this hot UK rapper “completely blew me away”. He continues: “It’s something I’ve always wanted to do, make music with hip hop or grime artists.”
