DJ and producer Robin Schulz has teamed up with Scottish singer Tom Walker for their hopeful new single, “Sun Will Shine“, out today. The track, which is carried by Walker’s scratchy, warm voice and stunning production can be heard now below.
Schulz described his single as “the perfect soundtrack for a sunset.” Of collaborating with Tom Walker, Schulz said, “I’m a huge fan of his and finally it worked out that we could release a single together. That fact that Steve Mac co-wrote the track is also a big honor.”
Walker added, “I originally wrote this song as a ballad for my album. It’s about whatever problems you are having today, tomorrow will bring a new day with new possibilities and hopefully some sunshine. Robin is a dance legend and I’m buzzing to be collaborating with him on this song and how he has transformed it into a feel-good summer banger.”
“It feels like we’re falling apart / Just a little unstable / We’re both half asleep at the wheel / Yeah we’re struggling to save us,” Tom Walker sings of a relationship that’s dangerously faltering. But when something has grown over the years, you don’t give up that easily – especially if the last words haven’t been said yet: “So we both get drunk / And talk all night / Pour out our hearts / Try to make it right.”
As the two lovers make amends and try to get closer to each other again, the song also changes. Having started with floating piano chords, gentle clapping and soft bass beats make room for grander production that builds until the song culminates into a glistening, beautiful drop, anchored by Schulz’s inspiring production and the chorus statement “It will be alright.”
