Bastian Baker
Multi award winning Swiss artist Bastian Baker has just unveiled his brand new single Six, the second track taken from his upcoming self-titled album, due out on October 26th.

I am completely in love with his lush distinctive vocals that soar over the smooth melodies. They convey so much emotion, making the listener feel each single word he sings. I am a sucker for folk-infused pieces of pop/rock music and this one is right up my alley. Haunting harmonies, infectious guitar lines and an overall dreamy atmosphere make the song a stunning listening experience for the heart and to keep us warm in the coming cold nights. Bastian is undoubtedly an incredible storyteller and singer. Stream this masterpiece below!

On the track, Bastian said,
I wrote SIX after spending a week in Los Angeles, with a girl I had been seeing on & off for a couple years. I was staying at her place and although we had the best time the first two days, it quickly became more complicated.

What had happened that week got me thinking - you know how they say that the seventh year is the most complicated year in a relationship? That week I had the feeling that the last 7 days I had experienced with this girl were maybe the equivalent of 7 years in other relationships.

In August 2016 I was in Montreal to record SIX. My producers and I decided to use an electric guitar on the track after I was inspired by James Bays’ guitar sounds. We started recording “one takes” without a click, to see how it felt. Then it was just one of those magic moments that sometimes happens in the studio. After the 3rd take I had a really good feeling, and when I opened my eyes again, I just saw the producers clapping their hands. Then one of them told me, “we have it, let’s get lunch”. And that was it. The next day we added a bass, a violin and very few harmonies to this third take and we had a song!
