Q&A: Ameriie Explores Freedom, Androgyny, & New World Order on New Album

Ameriie

Ameriie breaks out of the box and explores new territory on her fifth album Cymatika, Vol. 1, which includes unorthodox topics ranging from ancient astronaut theory to androgyny to new world order mixed with elements of trance, electronic, house, heavy drums, and new wave.

“There’s a song about the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah with extraterrestrials destroying them with nuclear weapons,” explained the Georgetown grad of “Sodom & G.” “I don’t feel like that’s really been done.”

Other tracks include the mechanical “Intimidation,” “Run for Cover,” and the likely first single “FireStarter (Private Dancer).” “I really wanted to talk about the human experience,” shared Ameriie. “I wanted to talk about other stuff, but in a way that’s still listenable.”

Rap-Up.com spoke with the newly married singer about what we can expect from her genre-bending album.

New Music: Ameriie – ‘Outside Your Body’

Ameriie

Ameriie journeys around the world on “Outside Your Body,” the Euro-pop lead single from her fifth album Cymatika Vol. 1, due next year. The track, written by Ameriie and produced by Andre Harris, Kasey Phillips, and Nikholai Greene, takes listeners on an international tour, infusing the banger with blinding synths and an infectious melody.

“Tell me where you want to go/ Let me take you to London town and Paris, yeah/ Tokyo and Seoul,” sings the sexy singer on the chorus before adding a few lines in Korean.

“‘Outside Your Body’ is about the recognition that we are eternal beings, that these physical bodies are not who we are, and how we should remember and celebrate our unlimited potential. We have no limits,” Ameriie explained to Rap-Up.com.

Listen to the upbeat tune below.

New Music: Ameriie – ‘Outside Your Body’ [Snippet]

Ameriie

Ameriie goes global with the first single from her 2011 album Cymatika Vol. 1. Penned by Ameriie and produced by Andre Harris, Kasey Phillips, and Nikholai Greene, the sexy singer calls out London, Paris, Tokyo, and Seoul on the dance-pop tune, even singing a little in Korean.

“When writing this album, I really wanted to talk about what affects us on a spiritual level. Not a religious level, but on the level pertaining to who we are, who we really are as spiritual beings,” Ameriie tells Rap-Up.com. “I wrote about the intimidation we feel from different outside sources, including society in general, that cause us to want to hide who we are, change who we are, and suppress ourselves in a sense. I wrote about self-suppression as a self-defense type of reaction, self-defense from other people’s forceful ideas of who and how we should be.

“That’s what Cymatika as a project is really about. It’s about existing in this world and recognizing the power we all have naturally—truly realizing it. ‘Outside Your Body’ is about the recognition that we are eternal beings, that these physical bodies are not who we are, and how we should remember and celebrate our unlimited potential. We have no limits.”

The full song will debut tomorrow on Ameriie.com, but Rap-Up.com has an exclusive sneak peek right here!
