Riva Taylor released her brand new single Colours of Blue on Friday 15th July 2022, produced by Juan Valdez and Craigie Dodds (Gorillaz, Amy Winehouse) and features Mexican artist Ervin River. Forever exploring and learning, the British artist has spent the year immersed and inspired by Jazz, Bossa Nova and Samba elements, and learning Spanish. Colours of Blue was written and produced between London and Mexico City, and tells story of a romantic Summer fling.
“I’ve loved collaborating with Mexican artist Ervin River on Colours Of Blue and have been learning Spanish in lockdown so was excited to get the chance to bring it to one of my songs. The hook, translates: ‘I arrive, you arrive, kisses, bye bye’ brings a light hearted bounce to a classic melody, and the colours of blue refer to the sea, the sky as well as the sadness of transient love. Riva means something similar in many languages: ‘the shore’ – (French) or ‘from the shore’ – (Italian) so we are off to some exotic places on the new record for those who want to jump on board! First stop: Mexico City!” – Riva Taylor
