For this release, Sandancer has also brought on Nate Williams as a feature after they met playing together on the Jamiroquai Automaton tour. Hailing from Anglesey in North Wales, Nate brings his Soul/RnB tendencies to the vocals on the track. Recent releases have seen success on Spotify as Nate continues to build his following and expand into his musical goals through lots of collaborations, most recently releasing a track with Steve Winwood.
On the new single, Sandancer says, “With this one I took down the tempo while Nate’s vocal reflects on past regrets and works through finding acceptance. In the chorus we transition from the introspective theme present in my previous tracks and attempt to just chill for a moment or two.”
