Brazilian dance music icon Alok marks his first release of 2020 with ‘The Book Is On The Table’, a collaborative single with JØRD & DJ MP4, out now via Alok’s CONTROVERSIA label.
A slick rework of DJ MP4’s original viral hit of the same name, ‘The Book Is On The Table’ is an infectious dance track that utilises Alok’s signature Brazilian bass sound. Featuring bouncy rhythms, rave sirens, and irresistibly catchy lyrics, the single is poised to make an impact on both charts and dancefloors alike.
This is an indie/pop/disco song about love and heartbreak right in time for Valentines Day. I got the idea for this song because I know a number of friends who have recently broken up with long time lovers, some who even got married and within a short time have divorced. What I find intriguing is it didn’t seem like a big deal for some of them at all, almost like returning a shirt that didn’t fit. Then again, for a few of them it was really devastating. Seeing the differences in people today Vs generations prior, and how each is affected by what they experienced in their upbringing, is really interesting to break down. Everyone has the right to love and has the right to end it, and I’m not judging either way because I think everyone deserves to be happy. At the end of the day, love and loss is all part of growth but it’s certainly fascinating to observe the different perspectives.
