After a year of minimal music releases, dance music star Gareth Emery has finally given us a taste of what he's been working on. Announcing in late 2013 that he'll be releasing a new album in early 2014, the British producer has been very vocal on his approach to his music, siting a return to melody-focused tracks that he built his career. To be mostly released as the full package, Gareth has posted a radio edit of the first single off the album that will be released on iTunes on February 4th. He's been testing this track for a while in live sets and it's fit perfectly there and within the Garuda style.
Set your alarms, because it looks like this release is going to be a good one: featuring the vocals of Bo Bruce, "U" starts out as feeling fairly pop-fueled, only to end in the electro synths that the classically-trained pianist and producer is so phenomenal at. I've been waiting a very long time for this one, and it's everything I hoped for.
