Very Alora recently released a brand new single called "Elevated", which was produced by Michael Wagener (Metallica, Motley Crue, Queen) and to celebrate Alora tells us about the track. Here is the story:
About the song: I wrote this song back when I was 16. My first relationship had come to an end and I was just a little salty about it, but that wasn't the topic of my song.
There was this boy, I remember it like it was yesterday, he was in my science class. He had been flirting with me for over a month, which was a long time for 16 year old me. I thought he was pretty at the time. I got the courage and asked him out, to my surprise he said yes.
The day we were supposed to go out on a date, I was told by his friend he and his ex had gotten back together, and he still went out with me. So I wrote a song about him.
One working with Wagener: I've said it before and I'll say it again, working with Michael Wagener was a dream come true. I didn't know what to expect him to be like when I first stepped into the studio, which actually happened 2 years before I recorded with him.
He had produced or mastered so many albums I idolized. He was the most delightful person to work with. His studio was breathtaking as well, guitars and basses covered one wall, every time I walked through the studio it felt like a scene from a movie, moving in slow motion.
Working with him was amazing, everything felt seamless, it was my first time recording an album, I was scared it would be chaotic or hectic, but everything flowed smoothly working with him. It was honestly an honor to work with him.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen and watch for yourself below
