Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Revolution”?
It started out as an idea I had back in October with the melody, and a basic drop. It has a a similar vibe to one of my songs “U” so I would call Revolution it’s follow up in a way.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
I wouldn’t say any particular event, it was more around the idea of the melody. I love writing simple, catchy but also emotionally powerful melodies. They are the kind of melodies that come most natural to me during my writing process.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
We have a very cool video coming out for the song in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for that!
From everyone out there – why did you choose to share it with Armin Van Buuren?
Armin has been a huge supporter of my new music over the last 2 years and he has been a huge inspiration to me as an artist over the last decade so I couldn’t think of anyone better to share it with than him!
What was it like to work with Armin and Karra?
Really smooth organic and very fun! Sometimes collaborations can be very on-sided but this was a truly collaborated effort in which everyone contributed great ideas and made the song what it is!
Having so much creative (and in the case of Armin, a legend on its own) minds working together – how did you go on balancing the inputs and what not?
It was actually really easy as every time each of us presented a new idea all of us were super excited by it, we were all certainly on the same wavelength when it came to this track.
Do you tend to take a different approach when you are collaborating with someone else rather than working on your own?
The only difference I take with doing a collab is having a more open-minded approach to others ideas rather than being locked in with my own.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
I have lots of new material coming out over the coming months which I’m super excited about, Revolution is only the beginning! I have a vocal single coming out in July which Armin previewed at Ultra Miami and EDC this year and has lots of amazing feedback online so I can’t wait to release it!
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
Any plans to hit the road?
Absolutely, a big focus for me for the end of 2019 and moving into 2020 is to get back on the road and start touring so stay tuned!
What else is happening next in Luke Bond’s world?
Working on loads of new music and planning future shows!
