Tiesto Releases New Single ‘Summer Nights’ Featuring John Legend (Musical Freedom/PM:AM Recordings)
July 15, 2016
New York, NY – (June 17, 2016) – Today, DJ/producer and dance music icon, Tiësto, releases his new collaborative single ‘Summer Nights’ featuring Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, John Legend. The track is available now on Spotify, iTunes and across streaming platforms.
‘Summer Nights’ represents the first time the duo has teamed up since the release of the Grammy award winning hit remix of, ‘All Of Me,’ in 2014. Together, John and Tiësto worked to create a track that stays true to John’s sensibilities as a live performer but that also incorporates the undeniable dance music energy that Tiësto is known for.
“I was really excited to work with John again following the huge success we had with my remix of ‘All Of Me,’” said Tiësto. “For ‘Summer Nights,’ we wanted to make a record that mixed the energy from my club tracks with his amazing soulful take on pop music and I’m really happy with the result. This record is definitely a bit of a musical departure for me but it was important to us that the end result really emphasize John’s funky soul vibe.”
The result is an irresistible summer jam that is as melodic as it is ebullient. Tiësto has created a fun, layered anthem that perfectly complements John’s soulful vocals, his voice taking center stage as he croons about making his summer nights last forever with his special someone.
