With “Love Me Again” being a pivitol track in our love for music, when we had the chance to jump on a John Newman release you know we had to immediately. On our latest visit to Smash the House we are checking out “Guiding Light”, the latest from John Newman. John Newman’s musical journey began in 2012 when he collaborated with Rudimental on the UK number-one hit “Feel The Love.” This marked the start of his career as a singer, songwriter, DJ, and producer. His solo career took off with the release of “Love Me Again” in 2013, a global hit that achieved number one in the UK and reached the Top 10 in over 30 countries. With over 1.6 billion streams worldwide, Newman showcased his remarkable talent and broke boundaries for a young artist from a small Northern English town.
“‘Guiding Light‘ is a track that I felt I needed to produce for my daughter. Having this new life with us has been so inspiring. I love the idea that I can make songs for her that she can listen to throughout her lifetime, with ‘Guiding Light‘ being the first. For the production, I wanted to make a record that transported back to that UK radio sound I started out in. But, at the same time, I also wanted to challenge the big, uplifting dance track formula with Godfather-like strings and invigorating techno drives that I’ve been vibing with lately. Combined, it takes the emotive power to the next level, which I hope people will feel when they hear it.” – John Newman
