Free Download: Colin Munroe "I Want Those Flashing Lights"
Colin Munroe has me groovin' today.
"Flashin' Lights" is arguably one of the best tracks on Kanye West's 2007 smash album "Graduation." Written by Kanye West and Eric Hudson, the glistening synth-laden song is a good example of how West has blurred the line between hip hop and mainstream pop.
Candian crooner Colin Munroe now takes the song to a whole new level. He turned West's original into a funky indie pop tune that features his disctinct vocals that are a good match for Kanye's original production and orchestration.
Munroe has been working as a hip-hop producer for years, but has recently started recording as a solo artist, which is "much more in the pop/rock/indie vein of things," according to a press statement. Look out for his album "Don't Think Less of Me" that is scheduled for major release later this year.
And Kanye is digging this new version of "Flashing Lights" too. He just posted the video for the song on his blog. (MP3 posted with full permission.)
