Multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Roosevelt continues his 2023 streak with his new single “Rising”, out today via Counter Records/Ninja Tune. It’s yet another preview of his new LP Embrace that expertly showcases Roosevelt’s prodigious talents as both a vocalist and composer.

Whereas previous singles “Ordinary Love”, “Luna”, and “Paralyzed” drew influence from classic disco and funk, Roosevelt (the stage name of Marius Lauber) adopts a modern electronic palette on “Rising” to convey an inspiring message to the listener, delivered by Lauber’s trademark silky smooth vocal delivery. Layers of shimmering synths and driving drums surround Lauber’s vocals as he declares: “Don’t keep me waiting now / cause all of the time / It feels like we’re rising up.” Originally a demo that was inspired by the audio illusion of synths that are forever rising in pitch, “Rising” is a euphoric explosion of positivity, and will surely be a concert highlight on Roosevelt’s upcoming tour.
