Phat Man Dee is thrilled to announce the release of her latest single “Save you Save Me”

This song came to her in a dream and she woke up singing the chorus: "You want me to save you, I want you to save me, but we've got to save each other if we're going to be free..." In the dream she was singing in hundreds of languages, so when it came time to record it she found vocalists to help her sing it in Arabic, French, Hebrew, Spanish and Chewa. Guest vocalists feature are Julie Slim (French, Arabic), Sara Stock Mayo (Hebrew), Geña Musica (Spanish), and Mathew Tembo (Chewa). The musicians featured are keyboardist Andre "Chez" Lewis (Brooklyn, NY), bassist Tony DePaolis (Pittsburgh, PA), and percussionist Brian E. Edwards (Pittsburgh, PA).

Julie, Andre, Brian, and Tony recorded at home studios due to the pandemic, though Mandee, Sara and Geña's vocals were recorded by engineer Larry Luther at Mr Smalls Recording and Mastering Studio. Mathew Tembo recorded with engineer Zamba Anamela at MOA Studios in Lusaka, Zambia. The track was mixed and mastered by Larry Luther at Mr Small's Recording and Mastering studio.

Lyrics

I woke up this morning with a song in my head
I tried to record it before I got up out the bed

I reached for my phone inside of my dream
But dream phones don’t work if you know what I mean

But then i woke up
And before I could rise
I recorded these words
Before I opened my eyes

You want me to save you
I want you to save me
But we’ve got to save each other if we’re gonna be free (2x)

I’m singing a song to all who will hear
It’s a message of love and that we should not fear

We can’t do this alone if we’re going to live
We must learn how to share and we must learn how to give

Hear my song and please make it your own
We’re going nowhere if we try this alone

You want me to save you
I want you to save me
But we’ve got to save each other if we’re gonna be free
