Felix Cartal – Get What You Give (Radio Edit)
Over the course of his career, Felix Cartal has shown a strong aptitude towards writing personal records that reflect his growth as a musician. For his latest single, Felix revises the New Radicals’ stylish hit “You Get What You Give,” which was originally released back in 1998.
Cartal’s proficiency in the studio shines in this feel-good adaptation of the 1998 single, which seamlessly rises above the traditional conventions of genre and format. “Get What You Give” out now via Physical Presents.
Felix said of the track:
This song has been important to me ever since I heard it. It’s one of those songs that feels familiar the first time you hear it, the soundtrack to your life that you didn’t know you were missing. At first, I was tentative to put my own take on it, do you really touch a classic? But I kept thinking about this song nearly 20 years after it came out and… I had to try.
The lyrics actually seem more relevant as I get older, almost a 90’s take on The Beatles; “and in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make.” If I can showcase how important they were to me in a new format to the next generation then I’ll feel like it was worth it
