Why Don’t We and Jonas Blue kicked off the new year and Blue’s upcoming collaboration project, ‘Together’ with their brand new single “Don’t Wake Me Up.” The anthemic “pop dance banger” has been three years in the making.
“This song started with a late-night call from a good friend of mine, Lukas Costas, asking if I’d be down to come over and record scratch vocals on a piano ballad he just wrote. After we finished vocals, I showed my bandmates the demo and they loved it. That’s when we got in touch with Jonas. He loved the potential the song had and before we knew it, we had received the first draft of what would become a pop dance banger,” Why Don’t We’s Corbyn Besson says of the anthemic song.
“I’ve been wanting to get a collab going with Why Don’t We since they first hit me up on Twitter back in 2019. These guys have amazing vocals which grabbed me instantly, so I knew we could create something really special together. ‘Don’t Wake Me Up’ has a real depth to the lyrics. If you break it down, it’s about finding your true love in your dream. I can’t wait to share it with the world!,” Blue says.
The unifying message of the track is one that Blue will be inspired by for the rest of his upcoming collaboration project.
Besides ‘Together,’ 2022 will also bring Blue on a headline tour in Tokyo (February 22nd – 28th), as well as soon to be announced festival sets and residencies.
