Mixed and mastered by Katsuya Sezaki and Minyun Ko, ‘Sleepless Nights’ opens with a delicate solo piano before introducing Shabam’s effortless, ultra controlled vocal delivery. As the track builds into a sumptuous chorus packed with layers of breathy vocal harmonies and cinematic strings, Shabam flexes his vocal ability with falsetto vocal runs. Influenced by the likes of Jason Mraz, Tori Kelly and Yebba, Shabam captures a distinct honesty in his performance as well as a striking completeness to his sound despite being only his second release.
Speaking about the new single, ‘Shabam’ adds: “Initially I wrote this song thinking about two characters in my mind so it wasn't really something that had happened in my life. A year later I realized that the whole song was actually happening in real life, in reality and all of a sudden the song became so personal, emotional and relatable. It talks about two people where one person is trying to help the other person see what's on the other side of the tunnel but to get to that, the path can be difficult so the song definitely sounds emotional and sad but it talks about hope.”
