Sondre Lerche Revisits Old Creation On “I’m Always Watching You Too”
Sondre Lerche's song “I’m Always Watching You” was originally an upbeat, pop rock anthem of a track. Now the tides have shifted as Lerche was inspired to go back and reinvent that song and put it in a whole another universe. The new version with a slightly altered titled, “I’m Always Watching You Too,” tosses the music into a world that is slightly disturbed but more relaxed.
On his decision to put out an alternative version:
"The night before I was going to record I’m Always Watching You, I awoke from dream about the song. In the dream the song was slower, anchored by a sluggish dub-groove, and a narrative that was turning on me: I was being watched. I had been found out. It proved impossible to bridge the dream with the more natural, realistic version that became the original take on the song. But I couldn’t let go of the dream, and the hazy recording I made on my phone in the middle of that night became my guide for a different take on the same dream. A response, of sorts: I’m Always Watching You Too."
