Kane, signed to Columbia, makes a great artistic match with Garrix. The pair became fast friends after working together in the studio.
Martin Garrix says: “Making this track with my friend Clinton Kane was amazing! He is crazy talented and we get along very well making the studio sessions loads of fun! I’m really happy with the end result.”
Clinton Kane adds: “Martin is such a warm human and a mad talent. It was heaps of fun writing and working with him on this track. We actually only met after the song was fully finished due to logistical issues and volcanic eruptions. Thank god for technology! Love him to death.”
With Garrix’s recent events including a life-changing trip to Antarctica, Martin was recently announced as the official UEFA Euro 2020 Musical Artist, producing the official song to be revealed this spring that will used throughout the upcoming global tournament. Garrix will also be performing the song at the opening ceremony June 12 in Rome, Italy. Garrix also continues his run at the Omnia club in Las Vegas and will be performing at Ultra Music Festival in March. His 2020 is just getting started, and this new track will blast it into overdrive.
