Former Taxiride frontman Jason Singh is preparing the season’s summer hit with ‘Hold On Forever’, the first taste of his debut solo album.
Singh has been working on the album, now titled ‘Hummaniquin’ for a couple of years with hit song making producer Charles Fisher (Hoodoo Gurus, Savage Garden, Air Supply, Moving Pictures).
No stranger to the chart himself, as lead singer for Taxiride, he has had six Top 40 singles (Get Set, Everywhere You Go, Can You Feel, Creepin’ Up Slowly, How I Got This Way and Oh Yeah) and two Top 5 albums (Imaginate, 1999 and Garage Mahal, 2002).
‘Hummaniquin’ is very different in sound to Taxiride. With Fisher, Singh explores the 80s pop sounds that influenced him, like Prince and Michael Jackson.
Fisher was the perfect choice to produce. He was the man behind the desk for Savage Garden’s ‘Truly Madly Deeply’, ‘To The Moon and Back’ and ‘I Want You’, Hoodoo Gurus ‘Bittersweet’ and ‘Like Wow Wipeout’ and Moving Pictures ‘What About Me’.
‘Hold On Forever’ will head to radio next week. Sample it here now:
