Roosevelt’s forthcoming album ‘Polydans’ will drop February 26, 2021 (via City Slang / Greco-Roman) and will serve as an undeniable feast for electronic music fans, offering a cornucopia of perfectly blended musical styles, instrumentation and passion. And today, Marius Lauber (aka Roosevelt) drops “Strangers”, a perfect example of what’s to come from the forthcoming record, bridging together disco, French house, and Yacht rock with the orchestral stylings of renowned string quartet the Kaiser Quartett who made a special guest appearance to send the track sky-high.

The track was a laborious project in particular for Marius, who says that the track’s conception and execution lasted the entire recording process of the whole album: “Strangers is a track from the album that took me from day one to basically the last day before the deadline, so it definitely was a tough nut to crack. It started as a French house-inspired loop, which had just the bass line and a drum sample, but I layered so many instruments on top of it, that it turned into this very rich yacht rock production. It also features a recording of real strings, played by the infamous Kaiser Quartett, who are touring with Chilly Gonzales. It was super exciting to get a string arrangement from them to something that I wrote, they also really took the track to another level.”

Prior to “Strangers”, Roosevelt teased the variety to be found on ‘Polydans’ earlier this summer when he released album cuts “Sign” which Billboard said “balances 80s-inspired synth, disco, driving beats and cinematic textures into a musical amalgamation that simultaneously manages effervescence and heft,” the follow-up “Echoes” which Stereogum described as a “strobe-lit and expansive cut that locks into an insistent groove and periodically explodes into bright colors,” and Earmilk called a “groovy space disco offering”, and his most recent track “Feels Right” whose hilarious video was debuted by Brooklyn Vegan who praised the song as “bouncy, blissful pop.”

“It felt incredibly liberating to realize that I’m in a position now to go to the studio everyday and just do the music that feels right,” he says. “In this respect, ‘Polydans’ is my most personal album yet, as there hasn’t been any creative limitations – I just did what made me happy.”
