As the release of his LA album continues to draw closer, Tensnake releases the fourth single from the album, following ‘Rules’, ‘Automatic’ and ‘Somebody Else’. ‘Strange Without You’ (feat. Daramola) sees the German touch down on Armada Music with possibly one of his most personal records yet.
With lush background pads, sounds that harken back to his early hit ‘Coma Cat’ and relatable vocals from Daramola working in tandem with the beats, the record hopes to deliver the best possible dancefloor experience.
Tensnake: “‘Strange Without You’ is a very personal song for me. I wrote it after a breakup and the idea was to combine into one song the excitement of beginning a new relationship and the strange emotional state you often find yourself in after a breakup. Daramola captured the vibe perfectly and translated it into a bittersweet love song you can also dance to.”
Daramola, the Nigerian, Miami-based singer, songwriter and music producer who charted on Billboard several times and produced for multiple artists including Grammy award-winning rapper Lecrae, added: “Tensnake sent me the record and I immediately knew where to take it. His music resonated with my sound and my vibe; everything came so naturally.”
Tensnake apparently got his first taste of critical acclaim in 2009 with his ‘In The End (I Want You To Cry)’ EP. The Hamburg-born DJ, producer and label boss secured U.K. chart success with 2010 single ‘Coma Cat’, officially remixed songs from the likes of Aloe Blacc (‘I Need A Dollar’, 2010), Lana Del Rey (‘National Anthem’, 2012), London Grammar (‘Hey Now’, 2014) and Duke Dumont (‘I Got You’, 2014), collaborated with Nile Rodgers, three-time Grammy-winner Stuart Price, Jamie Lidell, MNEK, Fiora and more for his debut album ‘Glow’ in 2014, and snatched up over 70 million streams on Spotify to date.
