Eddie Chacon – Rumors or Lies?
After a career spanning 30 years, 8 million records sold, and countless Top 40 hits, Eddie Chacon of the classic pop/soul duo Charles & Eddie returns to release his first ever solo single, “Rumors or Lies?”.
“Rumors or Lies?” strikes the perfect balance between Eddie’s rich musical past and the future of his sound. The new single surrounds the songwriter’s unmistakable voice with a contemporary landscape, complimenting his soulful roots while delightfully planting Eddie in a sonic territory best described as Daft Punk’s work with Pharrell meets The Weeknd.
Eddie has said that he mainly writes his lyrics by stream of consciousness, sometimes finishing songs in as few as 15 minutes. He believes that in doing this a deeper unedited version of what he wants to get across emerges in the work. With “Rumors or Lies?” he leaves the lyrics up to interpretation, but it seems there are two narratives to be heard. The surface meaning being how we learn to treat and care for each other in our youth, while underneath that narrative rests a more thought provoking commentary on how we disseminate information in our world today.
In support of the new single Eddie has released, ‘Rumors or Lies? (Remixes)’, mixing the singer’s silky smooth vocals with the sounds of Disco, House, Moombahton, Electro and more. The release features 14 brand new mixes from producers like Sidelmann, Audiofreaks, D.O.N.S. & BK Duke, DASCO, StoneBridge & Damien Hall and many more.
Currently a LA based artist and fashion director for art/culture magazine Autre, Eddie recently signed to Warner Brothers / Quattro Records in Europe to release new music in 2019. He has teamed up with Radikal Records to release this first single, “Rumors or Lies?” in North America, and has plenty of new music on the way.
