Spotify have released the third mint single after previous outings with Dirty South and R3HAB. ‘Trouble’ sees Aluna link with Grammy-winning Haitian producer Michael Brun and Jamaican-British singer Alicai Harley.
This team up builds on Aluna’s signature sound, blending soaring vocal harmonies with infectious beats to create an incendiary anthem just in time for this summer’s dancefloors.
The trio are the perfect combination as each vocal and instrumental element blend together. ‘Trouble’ will be able to traverse the worlds of dance and pop music.
Says Aluna about the new song: “The thing I love most about collaborating is the surprise factor-it’s like Christmas. The song is about when you have a connection with someone on the dance floor – even if you’re not talking from some silly argument, you end up back together, locked in because your bodies just know how to live together. Alicai Harley knows all about that so it was incredible to watch her dive into the concept and then just lay down the sickest verse I’ve ever heard (and I recorded her on a boat in London!). The production started off pretty traditional but I wanted to pull together the euphoria of house with the sexiness of dancehall so I reached out to Micheal Brun because his ability to beautifully weave originality with straight dance floor power is what I love about him. I cried when I heard the final track, musicians’ tears (the same ones come out at weddings).”
