Paul Oakenfold and Latin multi-Grammy award winner Luis Fonsi team up on ‘The World Can Wait’, an unexpected collaboration meshing the artists’ strengths to produce a heartfelt masterpiece. While combining Oakenfold’s uplifting, melodic synths with Fonsi’s emotional vocals, they take us on a journey where the hopes of an undeniable connection are enough to conquer the world, especially in these troubled times.
Co-produced by DJWS (Lady Gaga, Pitbull), ‘The World Can Wait’ is the first single to be released from Paul Oakenfold’s upcoming studio album Shine On due later this year. Paul’s new album, his first since critically the acclaimed A Lively Mind (2006) and Bunkka (2000) will veer down a decidedly chilled out path, making it an incredibly listenable album and not one solely crafted for the dance floor.
“I just love the song and the meaning of the lyrics. The song came about during a writing session I was doing with a few writers and we took it to Luis Fonsi and his team who loved the song as well. It’s a good taste of what’s to come from my studio album – it’s mostly melodic songs and very cinematic with great singers and interesting beats. It’s something you will want to sit down and listen to in its entirety rather than as individual tracks,” Oakenfold says.
