Laced even further with uplifting beats and a firm bassline, this cut also stakes its claim as a peak-time dance floor smash.
“Working with George has been an absolute pleasure, it is not every day you are able to work with a legend of his magnitude. Revamping his voice and making him relevant for a 2018 dance floor has been one of the highlights of my career so far.”
