Multi-platinum producer, Jonas Blue, has kicked off the new year with a bang as he drops the soon-to-be pop smash “Don’t Wake Me Up” with hotly tipped US band Why Don’t We. Opening with arpeggiated guitars and piano, the track is soaked in addictive melody.
“Don’t Wake Me Up” is the first new release from Jonas Blue’s upcoming collaboration project, Together, that will see a stream of new music dropped across the year with exciting global talent. All these collaborations will feature the theme of togetherness, unity, and positivity – a crucial message that’s needed in the world more than ever right now – and is synonymous with Jonas’ music and successful career to date.
Jonas says, “I’ve been wanting to get a collab going with Why Don’t We since they first hit me up on Twitter back in 2019. These guys have amazing vocals which grabbed me instantly, so I knew we could create something really special together. ‘Don’t Wake Me Up’ has a real depth to the lyrics. If you break it down, it’s about finding your true love in your dream. I can’t wait to share it with the world!”
Why Don’t We’s Corbyn Besson says of the song; “This song started with a late-night call from a good friend of mine, Lukas Costas, asking if I’d be down to come over and record scratch vocals on a piano ballad he just wrote. After we finished vocals, I showed my bandmates the demo and they loved it. That’s when we got in touch with Jonas. He loved the potential the song had and before we knew it, we had received the first draft of what would become a pop dance banger. Enjoy ‘Don’t Wake Me Up’!”
