Following on from his previous acclaimed releases ‘Close 2 U’ and ‘Like It Or Not’ ft joan earlier this year, rising Irish electronic producer EMBRZ (Jack Casey) is pleased to announce details of a brand new soul-pop track ‘She Won’t Let Me Down’ featuring acclaimed singer-songwriter Leo Stannard out via Ultra Music this November.
Jack details the track: “We actually wrote this at the start of the year, so it’s a long time in the making. We started with the main hook, and built the song around that. Initially it was mostly just piano and vocal and sounded great, which is usually one of the telling signs of a good song! We wrote the song from the point of view of a person who is in denial about a relationship – when love isn’t reciprocal, and choosing to ignore the facts. I really liked twisting the lyric ‘She Won’t Let Me Down’ into something sad instead of loving, and musically I tried to have that parallel the production. Leo also has the kind of voice that also makes the song believable – I really enjoyed writing with him.”
Epic, swooning and emotive, ‘She Won’t Let Me Down’ sees Jack collaborating with Leicester based artist Leo Stannard, whose Black Butter / Sony EP ‘Free Rein’ drew positive comparisons with Damien Rice, Bon Iver and Ben Howard. The new single follows on from EMBRZ’s recent singles, ‘Close 2 U’ featuring Aussie new comer Harvie and ‘Like It Or Not’ featuring US duo joan. These tracks and his 2017 EP ‘Progress’, caught the attention of tastemaker press like Clash, This Song Is Sick and Wonderland, describing ‘Heartlines’ from the EP as “destined to be your go-to song to listen to as the sun sets on warm summer nights.”
Over the few short years that Jack has been producing music as EMBRZ, he’s notched up an impressive tally of achievements, remixing Ellie Goulding’s “How Long Will I Love You” (currently on over 6.6 million plays) and then The 1975’s “Settle Down” (currently on 3 million) the following year. Continuing that run, last year Jack turned out a stunning, blissful remix of Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Run Away With Me” – a remix so good her label couldn’t say yes fast enough and which ultimately became the official remix for the track. Since then, he’s been uploading a steady stream of tracks and Hype Machine #1’s, including well-received cuts like “Home”, “Lights” and then “Breathe” last year.
‘She Won’t Let Me Down’ will be available digitally via Ultra Music on 9th November
