Helado Negro Shares New Single “I Just Want To Wake Up With You”

Helado Negro – the moniker of Roberto Carlos Lange – shares a second track from his forthcoming album Phasor (out 9 February 2024).

Built around a chopped and sequenced guitar line, I Just Want To Wake Up With You is a languid and fuzzy love song, an ode to domestic life, and to comfort and health. As the title suggests, it’s about waking up with the one you love, resting your voice in their arms. The song is accompanied by a joyously psychotropic official video directed by Lange.

Taken from Lange’s eighth full-length Helado Negro album, I Just Want To Wake Up With You follows the Spanish language single LFO, a song written in tribute to both Fender amp-builder Lupe Lopez and minimalist composer and sonic meditation practitioner Pauline Oliveros (LFO means Lupe Finds Olivero).

Phasor is Lange’s tightest collection—deep, atmospheric, meticulously executed. It’s aligned with 2019’s This Is How You Smile which found him incorporating more upfront drums and bass and focused grooves. His 2021 album, Far In, focused on being in quarantine—talking to your mother through Zoom instead of across a room. Phasor, in turn, is a homage to going outside again. It’s a returning-to-life record, remembering what the sun feels like and letting it warm your skin.
