It's not the first time I felt this heartache It's not the first time I felt my world shake Won't be the last time I cry but there's no tears tonight Leavin my stress at the door till day break Cos I can feel it in the air Something's different tonight I'm stepping out of your shadow And moving into the light Figured it out now I'm liberated Feel like I'm somebody new Not waiting round for your love now baby You're never coming through
And I'm free fallin (freefalling) I'm letting go just let the melody flow Said I'm free fallin I'm feeling so like whatever cos things can only get better I'm free tonight Sweet dreams goodbye I'm free tonight It's all good I'm alright
It's not the first time I've started over It's not the first time my world grew colder It's gonna take a little time but right now I'm doing fine Gonna live it up before I get much older Cos I can feel it in the air Something's different tonight I think I'm finally moving on Yeah I've come back to life
And I'm free fallin I'm letting go just let the melody flow Said I'm free fallin I'm feeling so like whatever cos things can only get better I'm free tonight Sweet dreams goodbye I'm free tonight It's all good I'm alright
Zoë Badwi's debut single 'Release Me' is now somewhat of a club classic after it reigned over the #1 spot on the ARIA Club Chart for 7 weeks and was nominated for both ARIA & APRA Awards last year. The record was a huge international hit being picked up by labels throughout Europe, USA, Canada, Brazil and South Africa and a year on, is still being spun by some of the biggest names in the business, which is testament to the huge international appeal of Melbourne-based Zoë. The Freemasons, who over the years have worked with the likes of Beyonce, Kylie Minogue, Kelly Rowland, Shakira & Eurythmics were recently quoted as saying "We still play 'Release Me' every week, it was our fav track of last year...we love Zoë!"
Since 'Release Me', Zoë has clocked up some serious frequent flyers points playing gigs from as far as London to Beijing, Mykonos to Sao Paulo and all across Australia seducing audiences with her infectious energy, unforgettable performances & bubbly charm.
Jump to 2010 and Zoë is back with her biggest release yet. 'Freefallin' is a certified dancefloor-filling stomper with 100% crossover potential that clearly demonstrates she has the vocal pipes & charisma to be a major international star.
Fusing classic club beats courtesy of Australia's own Denzal Park (who have topped the ARIA Club Chart twice already in 2010) with an incredibly powerful, heady vocal, 'Freefallin' is both bright and uplifting packing a punch from the very first listen.
As with 'Release Me', It's a given that the record will resonate throughout clubland with top-notch remixes courtesy of Moto Blanco (Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey, Rihanna, George Michael, Jennifer Lopes) & TV ROCK but what lifts 'Freefallin' into a triumphant pop moment is Zoë's emotionally charged vocal performance and positive, life-affirming lyrics that will breeze their way into your heart.
Whilst Zoë sings of liberating yourself from heartbreak and leaving the past behind, the anthemic piano-laden backing pushes the track into a fantastic singalong chorus. This is celebratory dancefloor magic, tinged with the inspiration of stepping out into the unknown and loving every minute of it!
