Still riding the wave after releasing the four tracks from the first volume of his collaborative ‘From Russia With Love’ project, Arty is picking up the pace with a new standalone single. Released on Armada Music, ‘Kingdom’ features the vocal touches of Conrad Sewell. 

When asked about the creative process of his new single, Arty said: “I worked on ‘Kingdom’ longer than any other record in my career, by far. I wrote it together with Conrad Sewell and Michael Jade back in 2013. I was amazed by how powerful it felt. For six years, and maybe eight different versions, every time I was trying to produce and finish this song, I could never match the euphoric feeling of Conrad's vocals. When I was about to give up, it suddenly struck me and I made an entirely new production overnight. This is why this track will always be so special to me.


I still remember writing ‘Kingdom’ like it was yesterday,” Conrad Sewell added. “ARTY, Michael and I were over at the Universal Studios. ARTY and I had just met and we had hit it off, having already written one song together. I decided to bring Michael in since we had been writing together a lot, and we wanted to write something epic that could cross genres. I’m a huge Killers fan and to be honest, that was a big inspiration for the lyrics of the song. We all wanted something uplifting where my vocal could soar over anthemic music. ARTY then took the topline that Michael and I had written and brought it to life with the huge track you hear today. The song is about never giving up on your dreams; life is short and beautiful so let us make the most of our today and tomorrows.”
