Daniel Bedingfield has penned a self deprecating song ‘One Hit Wonder’, performing it as part of a series of 12 reggae-ish songs he will be recording in this manner. The ‘Gotta Get thru This’ singer wrote them all in 2-3 hours on a brisk jog in Malibu Creek Canyon.
“By ‘written’ I mean sketched,” Bedingfield writes. “I wrote the beat/bassline, the melody and the hook. I wanted to preserve the creative frenzy they were written and sketched in. So I’m recording them in the order they were written, while not finishing the writing till just before the moment of recording. In real-world spaces. With great new directors and no budget.”
