R3HAB’s “Runaway” with Sigala & JP Cooper Receives A Bold House Remix From Indonesian Trio Weird Genius

by

After releasing dance-pop fusion “Runaway” with Sigala and JP CooperR3HAB‘s summertime anthem and the first track from his forthcoming 3rd album, it receives a unique remix from upcoming sensations Weird Genius. The original’s soulful vocals still shine through on the opening, but the twist comes in Weird Genius‘s gritty, bass-centric touch. The talented newcomers incorporate stabbing synths and wobbly basslines that lend a darker but still high-energy element to the track. If the original serves as a heartfelt and inspiring message about chasing your dreams, Weird Genius‘s remix is the after-dark version where those dreams become hedonistic temptations.

The Indonesia-based trio has been making waves across Southeast Asia. In 2020 they released “Hush” with Yellow Claw, which is currently at 12M streams on Spotify, and signed with Astralwerks with “LATHI” (currently 53M streams on Spotify and over 200M across all platforms). “LATHI“‘s global popularity trained all eyes on Weird Genius, and we can’t wait to see what they do next as they expand their global imprint by partnering with heavyweights like R3HAB, who was the first major artist to recognize Weird Genius‘s talent, and officially remixed “LATHI.”

Multi-Platinum R3HAB Releases Heartfelt Coming-of-Age Story “Runaway” with Sigala & JP Cooper As The First Single From Upcoming Studio Album

by

R3HAB teams up with UK sensations Sigala and JP Cooper for their collaboration “Runaway,” a stunning coming-of-age saga that fuses the best of dance and pop. The song reflects each artist’s signature sound, from R3HAB‘s dynamic and high-energy style and Sigala‘s radio-friendly beats to JP Cooper‘s soulful vocals. Opening with undulating, upbeat melodies, “Runaway” rides on a combination of muted basslines and heartfelt vocals; its powerful lyrics about taking a risk to realize a dream or happiness is something many listeners will be able to relate to. The track is the first confirmed as part of R3HAB‘s new studio album, which will be released this fall, and offers a sneak peek into what fans can expect from his newest body of work. “Runaway” was years in the making between these three talented artists, so read on below for more about the story behind the track:

R3HAB:
Sigala and JP are pioneers in the UK‘s dance-pop scene, and I’ve been following their work for years. Being able to create a song together that reflects each of our signature sounds makes me extremely proud. We were in the same headspace when working on this song. There’s always something in your life that requires boldness to unlock its full potential. ‘Runaway‘ is about daring to try; I hope our fans are inspired to find that boldness within themselves.”

Sigala:
I am so happy we are releasing ‘Runaway‘ for the world to hear. One of my favourite parts of what I do is collaborating with other writers and producers – and I was blown away by the talents of both R3HAB and JP Cooper. We had so much fun making the record, and I hope everyone enjoys it!

JP Cooper:
Runaway‘ has been in the making for a good couple of years now, and I’m so happy it’s finally off the hard drive and into the world. It’s been amazing watching R3HAB and Sigala develop the track to where it’s at now. ‘Runaway‘ is a youthful, wide-eyed, coming-of-age story… it definitely brought back a few memories. I’m sure you’ll be able to relate.”

Sigala is the musical nom de plume of Bruce Fielder, a London-based house DJ, producer, and remixer. Launching his career with “Easy Love,” a sampling track that topped the charts in the UK in 2015, he continued releasing bright, sunny dance-pop tunes featuring a variety of guest vocalists and producers. His 2018 full-length album “Brighter Days” included collaborations with Kylie MinogueCraig DavidSean Paul, and Nile Rodgers, among many others. Subsequent tracks featuring Becky Hill (“Wish You Well“) and James Arthur (“Lasting Lover“) continued his run of UK Top Ten hits. In 2019 Sigala released the single “We Got Love” featuring Ella Henderson. Another song with Becky Hill – “Heaven on My Mind,” appeared in 2020, and “Lasting Lover” with James Arthur became Sigala‘s 8th single to chart in the UK Top Ten. His latest single “You For Me” with Rita Ora, proved to be yet another Summer smash of 2021.

JP Cooper has done the legwork. Ten years in bands in and around his Manchester hometown. Multiple songs written on his own and with a variety of collaborators, a couple of which became global hits-that-will-not-die: “Perfect Strangers” with Jonas Blue and his own “September Song,” which is now sitting at some 600M streams. An international solo career built on pure songcraft. And he’s done the business. The singer/songwriter’s 2017 debut album “Raised Under Grey Skies” has sold in old-fashioned numbers: 1M copies at time of writing. His 11M monthly Spotify listeners have contributed to a grand total of 4B total streams. And, over the past 18 months, Cooper has done the hardest thing: built on all that to create a second album, a collection of 13 songs that work as together and work apart, that out-paces, out-sings and, by his exacting standards, out-classes his debut.
