‘Music Rescues Me’ is the single trailblazer for Paul van Dyk’s October-released, ninth studio album of the same name. It reunites the internationally renowned music producer with collaborators from not one, but two of his best loved releases of recent times.
For the track’s vocal, Paul is joined by Plumb – the singer who rendered 2012’s ‘I Don’t Deserve You’ much of its emotional punch. ‘Music Rescues Me’ is co-penned by the lyricist behind latter-day van Dyk anthem ‘Home’, Snow Patrol member and long-time personal friend, Johnny McDaid.
Paul & Plumb’s shared history reaches back three whole PvD albums, to ‘EVOLUTION’ and ‘I Don’t Deserve You’. Beloved by fans from both respective quarters, the pair stayed in close contact, looking for the right project to resume the partnership on. That came following a song-writing session between Paul and Johnny. “It took a little while, but, in ‘Music Rescues Me’, I knew we had the right follow-up for Plumb” – says Paul of the song.
Set amidst epic, reverb-rich guitars strains and dynamic rhythms, ‘Music Rescues Me’ is a track whose rapturously positive-thinking/feeling chorus is only equalled by its imaginatively stimulating verses. Paul & Plumb’s ‘Music Rescues Me’ is out today through VANDIT Records today.
The ‘Music Rescues Me’ October album launch show at new London club titan The Printworks is now less than a month out. Having already housed some of the biggest names in electronic music, on October 12, it’ll play host to Paul’s début performance of the album’s music. PvD will become the first artist to deliver trance to the history-steeped surrounds of the former newspaper printing plant. If you’ve yet to secure a ticket, don’t delay – the majority have already been snapped up!
Paul van Dyk recently scooped a Trance Master Award at the 21st Annual DJ Awards, on September 12th. The awards show, which took place at Ibiza Town’s Heart venue, honored Paul with a Trance Master DJ Awards gong. He joined other artists including Andy C, Carl Cox, Sven Vath and Hernan Cattaneo, as well as newer names like Ben Nicky, who were also celebrated with awards for their contributions to dance music in 2018.
