Parisian hitmaker Martin Solveig is back to Positiva with a new single, “Places” a piano-driven track, armed with a bubbling bassline and flowing percussive elements, perfectly complimented by Ina Wroldsen’s sultry vocals.
Having played alongside a star-studded cast of guest artists including Mark Ronson, Diplo, Tinie Tempah and Blonde at his “My House” Pacha residency this summer, Martin Solveig is exploring a fresh new sound for this single, “Places” featuring norwegian singer/songwriter Ina Wroldsen who has already made an impact on the global music scene, lending her vocals to Calvin Harris & Disciples’ hit “How Deep Is Your Love” and her songwriting talents to Clean Bandit’s chart-topping hit “Rockabye“. Ina has collaborated with several of pop music’s finest, including the likes of Jess Glynne, One Direction, Little Mix & Calvin Harris.
“Places” is set to build on the success of Martin’s summer anthem “Do It Right” feat. Tkay Maidza. Appointed a “Future Anthem” by BBC Radio 1’s Danny Howard, “Do It Right” went on to pick up over 60 million global streams and used as the soundtrack to the latest Stuart Weitzman campaign, starring supermodel Gigi Hadid, directed by the multi-talented James Franco.
This summer Martin played a string of shows and festivals across in the UK, including Electric Daisy Carnival, Creamfields and Capital FM’s Monster Mashup. He will tonight be performing a special guest set at the DJ Snake party in Paris, followed tomorrow night by a set at the Cream Steel Yard event in Liverpool. Not stopping there, Martin recently remixed Flume’s single “Never Be Like You“, as well as spending time collaborating in the studio with a wealth of artists including Oliver Heldens, Clean Bandit, and Tiga.
Released on Positiva/Virgin EMI, “Places” is now available to download on Beatport.
