Three-time Grammy-nominated piano prodigy Joey Alexander is premiering the title track from his upcoming Eclipse album exclusively on Billboard.
The young artist's musicianship and knowledge of jazz and classical fundamentals are embraced on this free, peaceful 10-minute track. He approached "Eclipse" with subtle sounds and delicate harmonies.
"After seeing the eclipse, I was inspired to compose something new," the 14-year-old told Billboard. "It was a little intimidating to play those first notes, knowing it would be the only take. I was relieved after listening back in the control room. It’s what I really love, composing freely in the moment, listening and reacting to the band, creating something new and moving to another place."
