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. The new year is upon us and this fresh release is primed and ready to set 2022 alight – listen here.
‘Don’t Wake Me Up’ is the first new release from Jonas Blue’s brand new collaboration project ’Together’ that will see a stream of new music dropped across the year with exciting global talent. All of 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 his hugely successful career to date.
Opening up with a soundspace of arpeggiated guitars and piano, the track is soaked in addictive melody, sung by one of the most exciting boy bands on the planet right now.
Jonas comments; “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!”
