Known for a string of hit songs like “All Night” with The Vamps and “I Don’t Dance” with Enrique Iglesias, critically-acclaimed DJ and producer Matoma has released his newest single “Midnight Sun”, featuring widely-acclaimed singer-songwriter JP Cooper. Working together for the first time in their music careers, the incredibly talented artists have seamlessly blended their two unique styles to create a head-bopping anthem for the summer.
Staying true to its title, “Midnight Sun” is a light-hearted track that illuminates a restful night with its cheerful lyrics and rhythmic beats. The song begins with the angelic vocals of JP Cooper expressing his love and appreciation for people who chase away the shadows of the night with their goodness and light. After the first electrifying beat drop, the tune becomes impossible to forget with catchy, groovy, and rhythmic instrumentals. In its own right, this song is its own midnight sun.
“I feel like I’ve known Tom for years, although we’ve only met once and ‘Midnight Sun’ was written over a Zoom session. The song is a celebration of the people who bring light in your darkest moments. I suggested the idea of Midnight Sun as a nod to the very light nights in Norway during the summer, turns out Tom’s first ever tour was called the midnight sun tour so I guess it was meant to be. I have a feeling this is a creative relationship that will last much longer than just the one song,” JP Cooper shares on the collaboration.
Although “Midnight Sun” marks the first ever collaboration between Matoma and JP Cooper, both artists are no strangers to breathtaking collaborations–Matoma’s previous singles “Heart So Big” featuring A R I Z O N A, “Take Me To The Sunshine” featuring Super-Hi and Bullysongs, “Never Surrender” featuring Steve Garrigan of Kodaline which took off with Steve and Matoma delivering an exclusive performance on The Tonight Show on NET TV (Indonesia’s top nightly talk show)–amassed millions of streams in under a month. The all-around artist has also demonstrated his raw talent across various genres, proving time after time that he is a driving force in the current electronic world.
