Dancefloor-friendly Single Showcases Diversity at the Core of Moss’ Music
Nashville, Tenn. (March 5, 2021) — Sidewalk Records recording artist Andreas Moss searches for connection with “Real Love,” available today, a dance-pop anthem laced by moody electronics and a thumping, club-friendly beat. Listen to the new track HERE.
Released on the heels of rap-influenced singles like “It’s Cool” and “Kudos,” “Real Love” widens Moss’ playing field once again, shining new light on a genre-bending songwriter whose diverse sound has already amassed more than 70 million streams worldwide. Like the upcoming album The Perhaps Existence of Andreas Moss, the song finds Moss shrinking the space between genres, making room for the beat-heavy bounce of R&B, the digital sweep of EDM, and the sparkling sonics of contemporary pop music.
“I wrote it at a time when I didn’t know up from down and just felt completely lost, ever in the pursuit of trying to find what true love really was and what it really meant,” says Moss, who co-wrote the track with Sam Tinnesz and producer Joseph Williams.
It’s a topic that hits home for the chameleonic songwriter, who previously topped the Christian charts under the name Jonathan Thulin. Moss has since reinvented himself as a bold and unapologetically outspoken force in pop music and queer culture, releasing songs that often highlight his experience as an out-and-proud gay man. The result is an inclusive brand of pop music — a sound that celebrates not only the universal challenges that bind us all together, but also the unique characteristics that set us apart.
With “Real Love,” Andreas Moss also pulls the audience’s focus toward the instrument that helped launch his career years ago: his voice. He’s rarely sung with such electricity or elasticity, and it’s that voice — the same one that earned him a feature in Billboard, a run of concerts with Juicy J and Andy Grammer, and placements in Spotify playlists like “Global Viral 50” and “New Music Friday” — that gives a heartfelt, human touch to this dance-pop banger.
“Real Love” is available HERE now.
About Andreas Moss:
Swedish singer-songwriter Andreas Moss is part of the new vanguard of queer artists attempting to deconstruct the pop panorama. Born Jonathan Thulin, Andreas’ journey to becoming a queer pop force did not come without a significant amount of reflection. Now splitting time between Nashville and Los Angeles, Andreas split time between Sweden and the U.S. since age three, part of a traveling missionary family steeped in music and preaching across the country in an RV. Getting his start as a Christian artist, Andreas faced an internal struggle with his own queerness.
“I was teased so much in church,” he recounts. “As a Christian artist I did really well; five years ago I was onstage and realized I hated myself. I fell off the map and started doing Pop music.” Since that moment, he’s embraced his queerness and crafted Pop music tinged by Gospel training. Andreas’ music has been featured in the likes of Billboard, Wonderland, and Clash Magazine and appeared on some of Spotify’s most notable playlists, including “Global Viral 50” and “New Music Friday”, amassing 70M+ streams worldwide. He’s also cut his teeth on the road opening for Juicy J, Andy Grammar, and Fetty Wap on tour and made a name for himself as a cross-genre songwriter.
This in-between life informs his aptly-named forthcoming album The Perhaps Existence of Andreas Moss. A proclamation of his queerness and an exploration of genres, Andreas has crafted a work that teeters the borders of Trap, Pop, R&B and Soul.
With The Perhaps Existence of Andreas Moss, the singer is speaking himself into an existence as an out-and-proud gay man making the music he wants to make.
Andreas has been deeply inspired by Black music in his new record’s sound and throughout his career from early song “Chaka Khan” and citing Beyoncé and Destiny’s Child as inspirations. “I was only allowed to listen to Christian music growing up; since then, I have been so influenced my entire life by Black artists,” he says. “It’s such a big part of why I sing the way that I do. I am working toward an industry of love and acceptance and non-competitiveness that actually celebrates artists and being different.”
