Exciting alt-pop newcomer Sly teams up with Emily Warren for his debut single ‘Cotton Candy’.
Sly, aka Sylvester Sivertsen, has racked up esteemed credits over the past few years, having collaborated and produced for notable artists including The Chainsmokers, Liam Payne, Cheat Codes, the Jonas Brothers and many more. Now he returns to the forefront of emerging artists as a songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist with his debut release.
The same can be said for Emily Warren, who happens to be behind records from the likes of Dua Lipa, Khalid, Sigrid, Rita Ora and Charli XCX.
“Human emotion is what music is about,” proclaims Sly. “I’m very particular about whether music makes me feel something – in its lyric, its melody, its sound, or all three at once,” he explains.
New single ‘Cotton Candy’ hits the mark. Sly captures a dark, moody, and sexy energy in this new track and Warren’s luxurious vocals were just what the song needed. He explains that the single is about not giving up on love. “Emily was going through a breakup and we were talking about how difficult love can be, and how to know when you should let go or keep fighting.
‘Cotton Candy’ is a song about not being ready to give up and Emily got back with her boyfriend the next day.”
