Porcelan‘s long-awaited debut album just made its global debut on all streaming and download platforms. Mood Ring is a 17-song offering that boasts a lone feature from the legendary Stevie Wonder.
“There are so many things that have inspired me to name and record my debut album, Mood Ring,” mentions Porcelan. “Mood Ring is the idea of not being boxed-in. I have been anticipating to show the world the many dimensions to who I am. Life is a mood. Each day you want to feel something different from it. I wanted to put a project together that spoke to people and their day to day lives. I wanted to talk about different relationships that people encounter,” she adds.
For most of 2020 and while quarantined due to the pandemic, Porcelan has been able to increase her buzz with the releases of her singles “Act Out” and “Grimey.” Porcelan in partnership with youtube also hosted and performed at the first-ever intimate Youtube concert appropriately titled, “Club Mood.”
Sonically, I wanted to create a project of emotions that connects with people on a personal level. A project that has elements of happiness, sadness, excitement and passion. “Mood Ring” speaks to the life of relationships—the good, the bad and the ugly. So whatever mood you’re feeling in that moment, is what I feel “Mood Ring speaks to.”
Mood Ring gives us a deeper look at the personality and entirety of Porcelan. Some cuts that stand out the well-received single, “Act Out”, which was inspired by the 90’s film, A Thin Line Between Love and Hate. The song expresses how you should never play with someone’s emotions because you never know what they have been through, and it’s describing a love that will make you do crazy things. Elsewhere, there’s “Toxic” featuring Stevie Wonder. The world music-infused lead single, which was inspired by a past relationship where a person loves someone so much, but that other person just isn’t good for them.
