Singled Out: Space Capone's I Just Wanna Dance

Today Space Capone (a.k.a. Aaron Winters) tells us about his brand new single "I Just Wanna Dance" which was released today ahead of the self-titled debut album which will arrive early next year. Here is the story:

I wrote this tune during a very influential period in my life. I mean to say, I was being influenced by many things... Mostly what my producer Calvin Turner, was telling me to listen to. I was a sponge. I had been on a Prince kick. Not just dabbling in Prince, we're talking about purchasing every record. Living Prince.

During this time, I was hanging out with a good friend of mine, Sam Gibb. She was living in town then. I remember getting to meet Barry Gibb backstage at the Ryman Auditorium for an Olivia Newton-John show. I wanted to tell him we were the same person. I didn't. Instead, I came home later that evening and wrote the song on the foot of my bed. I built a loop and forced myself to write to 120 BPM. I forced myself to write without swinging, which is a comfort thing for me. It was also when I committed to singing falsetto. All in all, it was a very quick process. Maybe twenty minutes.

I would later finish the lyrics without the use of the guitar. I sang a lot of the lyrics into existence while renovating a house on the east side of Nashville. Carpentry has been my gig before music. Carpentry took a half inch off my middle finger. I actually tracked vocals to this song with my hand above my head, one finger wrapped in gauze. There's a cute back story.

In conclusion, this song holds a special place in my heart. Written in my wilder developmental stages, it has proven to be a catalyst for the vibe that has become Space Capone.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself right here!
