Karim Rashid Sings!

change the worldLook no further for your Thanksgiving dinner soundtrack, design fans, because Karim Rashid has cut an album. The globe-trotting bundle of hot-pink charisma has added electro-pop music composer to his resume with “Change the World,” released this week on iTunes. The EP, which includes three songs in eight mixtastic variations, features the vocal stylings of Rashid transmogrified through Auto-Tune and set against pulsating dance beats.

The lead track, “Nutopia,” a musing on love and design (“I fell in love one too many times / I designed one too many things”), sounds like a brooding robot’s cover of Tom Tom Club, which is to say we’ve had it playing on a loop since Tuesday. Many of the lyrics—heavy on dreams for a fluid, biomorphic world—recall Rashid’s 2001 manifesto, “I Want to Change the World,” while “Love Kolor” is a more playful pop arrangement about his chromatic obsession (rage on beige!) in a gray, gray world. Think pink!
