After scoring a landmark 7th UK #1 single with ‘Lovers On The Sun’, a track that also topped charts in France, Germany, Austria and Finland and boasted Platinum streams in Denmark, Sweden and Norway, David Guetta is about to shift the needle yet again with his new global lead single ‘Dangerous’, featuring once more the vocal talents of emergent new artist Sam Martin.
Although David is renowned for working with some of the world’s biggest artists, he is also credited for collaborating with talent such as Sia. He believed in her incredible ‘Titanium’ spirit and now she is a global sensation. With Sam, David found another unbeatable voice. With new album, LISTEN firmly on the horizon, Guetta has announced his new global lead single ‘Dangerous’, which again features talented US vocalist Sam Martin.
‘Dangerous’ is a departure from David’s famed sound. With its mid-tempo beat it is a mighty statement from him. But then he is an artist that likes to take risks, as he did when he merged electronic music with hip-hop on his album NOTHING BUT THE BEAT. ‘Dangerous’ opens with subtle piano key notes and delicate string work, before Martin’s voice is introduced to resounding affect. Beautifully pitched, it punctuates a sea of swirling, synth FX that soon make way for, down-tempo, funk inspired bass guitar licks matching electronic sensibility with classic instrumentation. It is a single that represents his ability to pair solid dance music credibility with chart ingenuity – a facet of his work that makes him one of the world’s most successful artists.
David Guetta’s new album LISTEN is will feature a wealth of exclusive new material with an eclectic array of collaborators. Set for release on November 21, the album will undoubtedly build on the remarkable success of his 2011 triple-platinum album NOTHING BUT THE BEAT, which won him multiple awards, including a Grammy, AMA and was widely credited as changing the landscape for Electronic music world-wide and breaking open America.
Constantly touring and playing live to over 2 million people this year alone, this is one that’s already seen Guetta play headline slots at some of the world’s biggest festivals such as Tomorrowland, where he announced a Brazilian festival debut that sold out in just 3 hours, hold coveted residences in both Las Vegas @ XS and at Ushuaia and Pacha in Ibiza, headline the iTunes Festival in London and open BBC Radio 1’s Ibiza Weekend. All this hard work has lead him having hit 57 million fans on Facebook.
