-- The new single was co-written by Nick Whitefox and has been mastered by Tom Coyne in New York’s Sterling Studio. The music video of ‘Touch my skin’ was directed by Italian Claudio Zagarini, which captures the song’s allegoric message about society’s take on false values like luxury, aesthetics and power—abusing the minds of those who are weakest and most vulnerable.
The new single was released last January, 2012, on the internet, through leading international music web portals like iTunes, Amazon, Yala.fm, Google Music and Facebook. 50 per cent of the proceeds generated from the release of her new single will go to National Association of Young Energies Leading Solidarity (A.N.G.E.L.S.)
foundation, Princess Bee is the only songwriter who has received patronage from UNESCO for her song ‘Angels,’ which talks of the fundamental importance for peace and solidarity between populations. 'Angels' has also received the patronage of the Holy See and the Medal of the President of the Italian Republic, HE Giorgio Napolitano. The video for her 2010 single, ‘Shock Me,’ was awarded and cited during the 8th Edition of the Roma Video Clip – Il Cinema Incontra La Musica and also earned acclaim during the 2010 Venice Film Festival.
“This new single is a very sexy and appealing dance song, aiming to put the message across of how today’s society gives in to the promotion of false values,” said Princess Bee. “‘Touch my skin’ also has a fantastic music video directed by leading director Claudio Zagarini, filmed in modern London where I play a persuasive vampire carefully selecting my victims and making them slaves for my privileged circle.”
Princess Bee is also the founder and ambassador of ‘Angels Onlus,’ a humanitarian non-profit organization that is based in Italy and takes care of sick children living in areas afflicted by war or where there are no appropriate health care centers. The Italian song writer takes inspiration from her travels around the world but has been especially affected by her experience for some years in the Middle East, where she has worked with the local governments in the field of health and education.
