Upon first listen the airy piano’s wash over you before being intertwined with an energetic and powerful future house soundscapes. Having already teased the track in his recent shows such as Untold in Romania, fans commented this one “brought them to tears”.
The iconic piano and lyrics used in the song also were famously used by rapper 2Pac. His version ‘Changes’ was recorded in 1992, but released 2 years after his death in 1998. It has gone on to be one of Tupac’s greatest hits and notably went to number 1 in Don Diablo’s homeland, The Netherlands.
Tupac wasn’t originally creator of the powerful verse and legendary pianos. It first appeared in 1986 thanks to Bruce Hornsby and the range‘s ‘The Way It Is’. Both Tupac’s version and the original were about the civil rights movement, and the main issues faced by African-Americans at the time.
Don Diablo’s “Never Change” comes at a time riffed with global turmoil as issues with Brexit, Hong Kong, South Africa, and xenophobia fill the news. There isn’t a better time for Don to reimagine “Changes” and remind the world that love, understanding, and peace will fix the issues.
