Frankmusik: 5 Things You Need To Know About ‘Between’

b76a5fc47c1d6fe16fb55786e160d373 Frankmusik: 5 Things You Need To Know About ‘Between’

Recently Vincent Frank — better known as electro-pop dynamo Frankmusik — stopped by Idolator’s studio to discuss the new music that makes up his recently-released third album Between (buy here). At times during our conversation, Frank delved into painful subject matter, such as the despair he felt while being part of a major label, and the personal journey he had to go on once he departed that situation.

When talking about his new self-produced songs such as “Map,” “Chasing Shadows” and “Stronger,” however, Vincent was very eager to describe how each one fit into the album as a whole, and gave him the creative outlet for all the anguish he was feeling inside.

“‘Map’ was the beginning, like I need to get rid of everything,” Frank explains in the clip above. “‘Stronger’ is, you know what, I realized that without all of that — without the record deals; without the publishing deals; without all the additional fluff — I can do this.”

He goes on to tell the story behind “How Do We Know,” a heartfelt, piano-driven duet with New York-based singer-songwriter Cara Salimando, who was able to tap into Frank’s emotions for her own verses.

Later, Vincent describes the experience of recording his debut LP, 2009′s underrated pop gem Complete Me, with super producer Stuart Price: “If there was anything that I would have changed [about my first album], it would have been to have Stuart Price stick around a little bit longer, so I could have gotten a few more ideas off of him.”

Watch Frankmusik discuss the lush, beautiful Between above, then let us know below what you think of his new album.
