Francois Klark is a South African born, Canadian singer-songwriter and producer who is currently wowing critics, music lovers and labels alike with his debut single, ‘Spaceman’.
The track is quite simply is a dreamy expedition of love. From his captivating vocals to the flickering synths and live instrumentals, every inch of this song is blissful to the ear. Lyrically, ‘Spaceman’ tells a relatable story, and you can feel the emotion in every word.
No journey too far – I will search for you…
to the edge of the stars I will fight for your heart –
I will be your spaceman baby
To the corners of the universe I will go to look for you
Where the stars turn cold and the sun burns bold
I will go until I, until I find you
Speaking about the track, Francois said: “Some people believe that there is only one perfect person for you. Others believe that a person could fall in love with anyone and then that person becomes the perfect person for you. I find this idea very intriguing. So, like I do with most things that are on my mind, I took this idea to the piano and started developing a narrative around it”
He added, “In a sense this song became a metaphor for my journey as I search for, and discover my muse – music. Because of music I had the opportunity to journey all over the world”.
