John Roberts has teamed up with the legendary Debbie Harry to release his latest track, “Lights Out”, produced by Junior Sanchez. The single arrives with a trippy, party-ready video directed and animated by Kris Baldwin.
A long-time Blondie fan, John Roberts was thrilled when his friend Debbie Harry accepted his invitation to guest on his new number.
“Working with someone as professional and legendary as Debbie Harry is something I will never forget” says Roberts. “She came in and nailed it and this song is a dream come true”.
“Lights Out” is the follow up to “Freaks” which came out in 2020. Both tracks are the follow-up to John Roberts’ 2019 self-titled EP. Produced by Big Black Delta, it featured his UK club hit “Looking”. These new singles will appear on Robert’s debut album set for release later this year. Look for more new music from John Roberts moving further into 2021.
Hailing from Edison, NJ, John’s deep-rooted love for music can be traced back to his youth. At the onset of the 90’s he fell in love with the New York City rave scene and frequented the storied warehouse parties mythologised in movies like ‘Go’. Going from music lover to being in a band was a no-brainer and Roberts found himself the front-man for Opti-Grab. The group released one album and toured relentlessly. Bringing things full circle, former tour-mates Blondie tapped him to drop some lyrical fire on “Love Level” from their critically acclaimed 2017 chart-topper “Pollinator”.
“Looking”, a wild anthem produced by Big Black Delta, followed in 2019, marked his solo debut with remixes by Tensnake, Junior Sanchez and Gerd Janson. The song—which landed at No.19 on UK club chart, along with “Dirty Little Secrets” and “Lonely Boys Have Fun Too” appeared on his self-titled EP released last summer. Flash forward to 2020, Roberts entered the studio with longtime club friend Junior Sanchez for its follow-up, “Freaks”.
