ARTISTdirect.com is extremely pleased to partner with Citadel to premiere "Stand Next to Me," a new song from their self-titled EP, which lands on May 7.
Before you listen, here is a little background info on the band, which is from the City of Brotherly Love.
Citadel is the music project of Philadelphia-based multi-instrumentalist, producer and founder of music subscription startup, FeedbackLoop, Justin Chapman. Needing a creative outlet that was free of time constraints and genre parameters, Chapman formed Citadel as a collaborative effort between several of Philadelphia's most prominent singers and songwriters. Citadel's self-titled EP blends live instruments, homemade synthesizers and electronic elements into a dark and heavy blend of indie-infused pop!
And that is why we had to share this anthemic, room-filling and ultimately organic track with you!
"'Stand Next to Me' was a ton of fun to write, and a great representation of the project. No nonsense, no shame, no BS. It was great to just sit together and be able to ask ourselves things like 'What would Michael Jackson do?' And yes, that question was actually verbalized one day when we were recording," said Justin Chapman about the song.
Did you love Citadel's "Stand Next to Me" as much as we did?
