Azëe urges you to Close Your Eyes and surrender to love with his transfixing new dance-pop single and animated video — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
Featuring vocals from singer J.O.Y., the Montreal producer and songwriter’s latest track asks the listener to not give up and have faith in love. J.O.Y.‘s soothing, supple vocals are accompanied by encouraging lyrics set to an upbeat, dreamy EDM beat:
“Yea the world is not over yet
Forget all we need for now
If I say I’m going your way
I won’t let you down for now
I know it’s hard just close your eyes
I won’t be gone I’ll stay tonight.”
The song can almost be considered a lullaby hidden in a dance track. J.O.Y.‘s angelic vocals and Azëe’s psychedelic EDM production make the song versatile — it could easily be listened to while studying, winding down for the night, or going out on the town.
Azëe says the song was inspired by two of the biggest loves in his life. “I wrote this song while we were at a chalet in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, with my daughter and my girlfriend. They fell asleep on the couch while watching a movie, and to be honest the movie wasn’t so good, so I took my laptop and my keyboard and just started to write guitar chords and then everything else started flowing so easily.”
The decision to collaborate with J.O.Y. was a no-brainer. He explains, “It took me no more than 30 minutes to write the lyrics. When I was done, I sent the song to the amazing singer J.O.Y. to sing on it. I must say his energy matched perfectly and did a wonderful job of capturing the essence of the words and melody. This song is just my way of showing that love has a powerful hold on all of us.
Azëe’s career began in 2016 when he opened up his first recording studio. Working within the genres of hip-hop, R&B, and pop, he gradually gained the recognition of Canadian music artists such as Day Vee and Angela. In 2020 he collaborated with top Montreal producer Ruffsound on Baila, a reggae electro-pop track that charted in Quebec. In April 2022, Azëe dropped Me And You, a collaboration with Daevø.
