SIRPAUL’s new single “Be Mine” is pure POP bliss. 90’s influenced dance with an infectious hook that stays in your head long after the song is over. This is the second single from SIRPAUL’s critically acclaimed new album Seventh Star. Attached you will find a link to preview the Radio Edit and the Extended Club Mix (which sounds just like it came off of a 12″ piece of vinyl… super retro electropop with a modern twist!)
