The Wonders of Songwriting, Pt. Two (feat. Nick Hakim)

“One of the most meditative things about writing is that you kind of forget where you are,” says Nick Hakim. “If you're tapped into it, you're not really thinking about anything else.” On this episode of Object of Sound, Nick recalls the spontaneous 5:00am recordings and free writing that went into the making of his new album COMETA, out October 21. Plus, Nick treats us to a special sneak peek of Perfume—one of Hanif’s favorite tracks off COMETA—and shares with us the inspiration behind the song, which beautifully captures the excitement of new love. Building on the album's themes, Hanif curates a playlist of songs all about falling in love to close out the episode. Music In This Week’s Episode: Vertigo - Nick Hakim Shoe In - Secret Stars Fallingforyou - The 1975 I Like It - DeBarge Caught Up In The Rapture - Anita Baker I Couldn’t Love You More - Sade Kiss Me - Sixpence None The Richer Darling - Montell Fish
