Canada's Alex Bent + The Emptiness takes some inspiration from Gwen Stefani to create a new track that adds his personality to create a super sweet groove. This is a single leading up to his commercial debut, an EP called, Vanilla Blue coming out May 18th.
A couple of the collaborators to this track have worked with Brockhampton including additional vocals from Jack Larsen and production from Connor Barkhouse. Additional production also came from Riley Deacon and Bent himself. The sample of "Hollaback Girls" by Gwen Stefani splits the track in half and supplies the final build-up to the climax of the song. Alex had this to say about the inspiration he gained for the track "When I listen to 'Gwen Stefani' I feel like smashing everything in my room. It's a victory song. It's a song about starting over." May 18th's Vanilla Blue is an EP that will establish a tease of the new sound Alex Bent is moving toward with a full-length album coming out next year.
