Platinum selling dance pop producer 220 Kid has unveiled his latest single “Release” alongside rising singer-songwriter ÁSDÍS. “Release” follows his multi-territory #1 single and BRIT nominated “Wellerman” remix and recent Defected Records track “Another Life” with Jem Cooke. Listen to the song now below.
Speaking of his new single 220 Kid said “’Release’ is the result of a collaborative process, just how all our best songs come about working with Tom De Mac, Jake, Amira, Joe and ÁSDÍS who’s incredible voice tells the songs story. The song is influenced in the classic piano house style, which has always allowed powerful vocals to tell emotional stories, the production we made was always there to support the lyrics and the feelings that ÁSDÍS vocals are providing, keeping it sparse and dark when the story is being set and then building and soaring when the true sadness of the long is at a head. Using a mix of a digital soundscape supported by analogue synths, to really create a rich and full emotive sound. The song is part of a series created by 220 Kid based around the title ‘Cupid Falls’ telling stories of lost love, almost perfect and how the happy endings usually at the end of cupid’s arrow don’t always happen. Part of a collection of heartbreak songs and visuals “Release’ sets the scene and is there to draw in the listener to a journey of heartbreak and sadness which we all can relate to.”
