Rootkit returns to bitbird with last single ‘Sparks’ from his upcoming debut album
Making his debut on bitbird earlier this year with singles “Only Knew,” “Promise Me,” and “Too Close,” Norwegian producer Rootkit continues to showcase his diversity as a musician with his new single, “Sparks.”
On “Sparks,” Rootkit once again managed to show us a new side of him creatively. Exploring a different style from single to single, Rootkit wanted to make a melodic track in a slower bpm to contrast the heavy, monotonous tunes he was making that fans have come to know him for. Mixing hip hop and pop elements with the track’s many atmospheric harmonies, “Sparks” contains heartfelt, relatable lyrics and vocals from Casey Cook.
The track is ultimately about having doubts about a relationship, with which Casey hopes to inspire people to take a look at their own relationships and encourage them to make the needed changes to either move forward or move on: “This song is about that stage in a relationship where you ask yourself if you should stay in it or not. There’s a loss of connection, the distance seems to be growing by the second, and you start overthinking and reflecting back on arguments. But the second they light you up again and give you that euphoric feeling, you retract right back to being in the “sparks”, completely hung up on that feeling and sensation they give you.”
‘Sparks’ is part of Rootkit’s upcoming debut album, set for a release on bitbird later in 2020.
