Future Starts Now

Following the release of "Love Me Land" last July, I am happy to announce that my new project β€” "Future Starts Now" β€” is now available! It carries some of the characteristics from the last year's release β€” I have again included only a song per artist, have gone for a more upbeat vibe, and it is even less commercial than my previous playlists. It includes 66 songs which is 6 more than last year's, and it is my biggest summer playlist since 2014's "#CantLetGo" which was re-released at the end of 2021.

Despite the playlist containing 66 songs, there are 84 artists. This is the most I have included in the last few years. 41 of them have not been seen in any of my previous projects. There are songs from 10 music genres, including Pop, Dance, Alternative, and Electronic. 31 of the songs were released in 2021 and 35 β€” in 2022.


The artwork is, for a second time for this project, a collaboration with my favourite designer George Stefanoff (Efoff Designs). While having a completely different overall look and feel, we also wanted the cover to have some resemblance to the artwork for "Equally Lost" which was released in 2020.

"Future Starts Now" (2022) and "Equally Lost" (2020) artworks

"Equally Lost" was released during the Covid pandemic which coincided with an already very miserable for me year. The artwork, I believe, illustrated very well the hopelessness I was feeling back. Nowadays, things look different and I am more optimistic about where I am and what awaits me. The "Future Starts Now" cover embodies the idea of taking your life into your own hands and confidently making the decisions needed so to achieve this and start a new chapter.

As I have said many times before, this series of music projects sort of "tells the story of my life". In that respect, I try to show how I feel at a certain time both through the artworks and the songs included in each of the releases.
