Fresh off the back two Platinum records and an extraordinary breakthrough 12 months, Joel Corry has teamed up with MNEK on anthemic new single, ‘Head & Heart’, which is available across all DSPs now here.
Joel first broke through last summer with ‘Sorry’ – a thumping re-work of Monsta Boy’s UKG classic of the same name – which spent 10 weeks in the UK Top 10, peaking at #6, and broke Shazam’s all-time daily record in the UK after receiving over 41,000 tags in one 24-hour period last July.
He followed that up with the release of ‘Lonely’ in January, which went on to peak at #4 on the OCC and spend a mammoth 11 weeks of its own inside the UK Top 10, firmly marking him out as the UK’s biggest breakout dance producer of the last 12 months.
New single ‘Head & Heart’ sees Joel collaborate with Grammy-winning singer-songwriter MNEK for the first time to zero in on a classic house sound anchored in its smooth tones, warm, glossy chords and feel-good, infectious lyricism. Listen here.
As a DJ, Joel also toured extensively across throughout 2019 and early 2020, as well as making his debut at Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball and Top Of The Pops’ Christmas Day & New Year specials alongside the likes of Lewis Capaldi, Freya Ridings and Stormzy. He headed out on his first ever headline Australian Tour in January and supported both Sigala and Jax Jones on their UK Tours in February, while also turning in official remixes for the likes of Stormzy (‘Own It’ ft. Ed Sheeran & Burna Boy), Wiley, Aitch, Sigala and Ella Eyre over the last six months.
About Joel Corry
From winning titles with body building to being a TV star, and having his own show at Kiss FM, it’s safe to say Joel Corry has already had an extensive career, yet he’s only getting started. In 2019 ‘Sorry’ happened. Upon release it exploded, becoming rinsed in clubs and on daytime FM radio, getting signed to Atlantic, and on one day last summer breaking the record for the most Shazamed track in a 24 hour period with a staggering 41,000 tags.
He’s now setting his sights on making an album and landing bookings at the world’s biggest festival stages. “I grew up in clubs and still get the same buzz now playing in front of crowds that I did 15 years ago,” he says, “when I get in that zone, all the other things in my life seem to go away.” Joel Corry has devoted his life to dance music, and he’s still got a whole lot more life to give.
