Zsüd Cooperated With Gorillaz/Blur’s Producer For New Single: Glass Ceiling
Producer-songwriter Zsüd drops her new song about the well-known concept from the corporate world – “Glass Ceiling.”
The difference from the previous tracks is not only in genre, but this song was a working material in a program called “Songlab” organized by the Hungarian Music Export Office, HOTS. Here Zsüd worked with British producer John Foyle /Gorillaz, Blur/.
“Spending a day with John was amazing! Not only did I learn a few new tricks, but the way John works made a huge impact on me. Even though we worked quite fast, the general mood was so light and easy all along. I have a habit of stressing in these situations and it was very refreshing to experience how easy this can be,” says Zsüd about working with John Foyle.
The debut album Rewiring from Zsüd was released a year ago – although that also covered quite a wide range of genres, “Glass Ceiling” is slightly different from them. It is inspired by personal events, it is a channel for letting some steam go, and making some boundaries in situations an average woman usually faces on the labor market.
“As for the instrumentation, this song has a slight sexy vibe, which is in strong contrast with the main topic. That represents a dilemma I am interested in nowadays. As a woman in many cases you are forced to take on masculine skills in order to make progress. However in the long term that leaves a mark, and the question is whether you can switch back and forth. For me it is a very interesting journey to connect with my feminine side, not only as a human being, but as a creator as well. I also have to relearn that in many cases making a decision based on intuition can be just as valid as trusting in logic,” says Zsüd about the song.
