Exceptional UK singer-songwriter and Grammy-nominated producer Dan Lancaster has unveiled his brand new track ‘Wild Life’, via Raw Kingdom / AWAL, and which will form as part of an exciting EP due later this year. You can listen to the track HERE.
‘Wild Life’ sees Lancaster move into stratospheric pop terrority, and yet again displays his extraordinary vocals. It also follows the success of his debut single ‘Move A Mountain’, which was Apple Music’s ‘Best Of The Week’ and has been supported by Dan P Carter (BBC Radio 1), John Kennedy (Radio X), Clash & more.
On the lyrical themes behind his new track, Lancaster explains; “I wrote Wild Life with my mates Nina Nesbitt and Sam Preston and it is about getting yourself into a cycle of escapism. Engaging in the pursuit of anything that serves as a distraction from real life.”
Lancaster is a Grammy-nominated Producer/Mixer/Writer from London who is currently best known for his work with some of the biggest bands in the world. He has written, produced and mixed 8 Radio 1 A-Listed records in the last two years, working with Blink 182, Good Charlotte, 5 Seconds Of Summer and Bring Me The Horizon, as well as Fickle Friends,, One OK Rock, Don Broco and Lower Than Atlantis.
On launching the solo venture, he comments; “I produce a lot for other artists, and you get to express yourself that but only up to a point. I’ve always wanted to put something of my own out when the timing was right. I’d been writing in between projects and started to upload little clips to my Instagram, but the turning point was when I wrote ‘move a mountain’ – then it felt like the start of something and the benchmark for everything to follow”
In 2017 Lancaster built and has subsequently worked in his own customised music studio in the London. He has scored multiple Platinum and Gold albums and had Number 1 albums in the UK, USA, Japan, Canada, and Australia, as well as being involved in records with over 800 million Spotify streams.
October 16th will see Dan perform his debut show at London’s Oslo, Hackney. The gig will give him the opportunity to perform live for the very first time, translating his exceptional talent on record to the live arena.
