Carlos Sadness welcomes a new musical stage with ‘Lo que fue’, the single with which he presents his next album. The artist, whose last album he published in 2020, is finalizing preparations for the launch of ‘Realismo Mágico’, an album that will be released next April.
With the accompaniment of the Mexican Ximena Sariñana on the chorus, ‘Lo que fue’ is a song in which Carlos Sadness embraces a danceable and even fun sound, influenced by The XX and avant-garde textures. The instrumental, which has an essence reminiscent of the past, elevates the good theme.
However, despite its lively rhythm, the lyrics highlight the artist’s lament for a person who does not seem to feel the same way. “I just need another sunset with you / Listening to Benito’s new one under the sun,” he sings at the beginning of the song. The chorus is unashamedly infectious: “I’d give anything to keep you from leaving / I’d do anything, whatever-whatever-whatever.”
«Magical realism was an artistic movement that sought to delve deeper into reality through the magic in it. Today, magical realism returns as a subjective view of the world. And although reality does not leave us room for magic, we will find it,” commented Carlos Sadness about ‘Magical Realism’.
