Corey Feldman is one of those rare entertainers who literally needs no introduction. The actor, dancer and musician has spent his entire life in front of the camera. Known for central roles in iconic movies like The Goonies, Stand By Me and The Lost Boys, the talented artist has entertained generations of fans. But you knew that already. Everyone does. What you may not know is that today (July 16) is Corey’s 50th birthday. Although he may not need an introduction, everyone likes to be wished a happy birthday. So Happy Birthday, Corey!
To celebrate his half-century in the biz, Corey Feldman will be throwing some extravagant parties and events. They include; a private affair for friends and family at the Landmark Hollywood Roosevelt, a VR live streaming event centered around his 50 years in film, and the final being a Benefit concert celebrating 50 years in music. But before all of that happens, today (on his birthday) Corey has released a brand new single from his very special forthcoming album.
“Feeling Funky” is the new single from Corey Feldman, released worldwide to all major streaming services on July 16, 2021. The track is a reimagined version of Feldman’s own original song from his 1995 movie “Dream a Little Dream 2.” For this fresh 2021 take on the tune, Corey teamed up with producer BLAZAR. Regular readers of The Static Dive know that name well. BLAZAR has appeared on these pages many times for both his solo music and that of other artists he has produced.
Rolling on an infectious dance beat, “Feeling Funky” combines the song’s 90’s origins with modern EDM and Pop production techniques. At the heart of the track is a laid back and funky descending bass line. A rich mix of analog and electronic instruments play off that groove to create a vibe alternating between a classic Michael Jackson-style Dance/Pop and Prince’s legendary Minneapolis Funk. Meanwhile Corey delivers a smooth and soulful call to the dance floor.
Over the years Corey Feldman and his band Truth Movement have worked with legendary artists like Snoop Dogg, Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst and Pink Floyd producer Jon Carin. “Feeling Funky” is the first single from Corey’s upcoming album “Love Left 2.” The record will be released on BLAZAR’s new Cosmic Wire record label and will consist of a series of re-imaged popular songs from Feldman’s many classic films.
We’re so excited to welcome Corey to the Cosmic Wire family. This is a reinvention, something new, and something brilliant, from one of the most recognizable faces on the planet. Corey is the real dealBLAZAR
