I love music…almost as much as I love airplanes! So when you combine the two, you will find me in an awesome space.
GOOD music is deep. It inspires, motivates, paints a picture, and creates a mood. But if it’s GREAT music, I can remember where I was when I heard it for the first time.
SINGAPORE AIRLINES’ NEW FLIGHT
Earlier this week, Singapore Airlines launched their latest non-stop flight from Singapore to Seattle. During the month September, the flight will operate 3x weekly with the following schedule:
- Singapore – Seattle: 0925-0905
- Seattle – Singapore: 1040-1725 (+1)
However, starting in October the frequency will increase to 4x weekly.
The route will be operated with the Airbus A350-900 which I flew and reviewed recently LINK. Seattle will be the fourth US destination served directly from Singapore and clocks in at a long 15 hours.
Note: The other 3 routes are:
– Singapore – Newark (EWR): Longest flight in the world
– Singapore – Los Angeles (LAX): 5th longest flight in the world
– Singapore – San Francisco (SFO): 9th longest flight in the world
Anyway, to kick off the festivities of launching a new flight, Singapore Airlines dropped a mix-tape.
Ok, it’s not quite a mix-tape but they released a new music track called “Non-Stop” and collaborated with Chong the Nomad.
Here’s the song:
And if you’re curious to see how it was made, check out this video:
I enjoyed the song but after watching the video about how it was made, I like it even more. What makes this song smooth is that it features sounds collected, literally, from the Singapore Airlines Airbus A350 and features sounds like an airplane taking off, the seatbelt fastening, and an announcement from a Singapore Airlines cabin crew.
I’m a big fan of ambient / coffee shop music. I tend to hear music even when I am boarding a plane or in a lounge and no one else hears it. This was a great song that had me tapping my foot. My only criticism is that it wasn’t longer in length.
I’m not familiar with Chong the Nomad but I like her style so I’ll definitely have to check out some of her other compositions.
