After eight monstrous Future Rave collaborations racking up over 140 million streams, David Guetta and MORTEN are back with a rework of Fleetwood Mac’s all-time classic “Dreams,” featuring rising star Lanie Gardner. They bring the 1970’s standard onto the modern dance floor, drenched with emotion. Guetta discovered Lanie’s cover of “Dreams” on YouTube which has over 7 million views and counting. He immediately fell in love with Lanie’s rendition and invited her to feature on the Future Rave remix. She delivered a powerful performance that is paired perfectly with David and Morten’s razor-sharp production.
Gardner’s smooth-as-silk, soulful vocal strains are drenched in sustained bass tones and a dizzying synth arpeggio that slowly reveals itself. The track builds powerfully and imperceptibly to its crescendo as a stuttering, bleeping riff cuts through the mix, recalling classic ‘90s trance bangers. The drop lays on a crisp beat, punctuating the brooding bass perfectly. Another enormous breakdown pushes us to the final stretch, where the groove and the vocals finally unite in an ecstatic release of tension.
This is Guetta’s first cover since 2014’s “Shot Me Down” featuring Skylar Gray — his rework of Nancy Sinatra’s sultry “Bang Bang,” which has amassed 760 million streams to date. This one has all the hallmarks of another Guetta smash with the addition of Danish DJ/Producer superstar MORTEN, and which looks set to introduce Fleetwood Mac’s classic to a new generation.
