Nicky Romero Brings Back Festival Vibes with Close to His Heart Single “Okay” with MARF, featuring Wulf. Out now on Protocol Recordings

by

Since the beginning of his career, Nicky Romero has had a talent for creating emotive and yet danceable music that stirs deep emotions in the hearts of listeners, and his newest track “Okay” with fellow Dutchmen MARF and singer/songwriter Wulf is a prime example. Opening with soulful vocals and gentle melodies, it takes a gradual incline toward a classic, progressive buildup and a goosebump-inducing drop. The lyrics to “Okay” talk about the importance of checking in on your loved ones, which has become especially relevant to the artists during the pandemic that swept the globe last year. “Okay” follows Nicky‘s recent remix for Afrojack & David Guetta‘s “Hero.”

When it comes to the writing and production process, ‘Okay‘ was a very special track to work on together with MARF & Wulf. For me, it has become a song close to my heart. During these extraordinary times, the people that are close to me became more important than ever. The message behind ‘Okay‘ that we want to spread is that we should check on the people around us more often whether or not things are ‘okay.’ We should show them that we are there for them when they need us. Every line in the song has a deeper meaning, and I can’t wait to perform it live.” – Nicky Romero

Lately, I feel that the people around us tell each other they are okay, while actually they’re not. We hope that they can open up a little bit more about how they really feel after listening to “Okay,” because no matter how you feel, it is okay!” – MARF

It is cool to see different musical worlds colliding, and I am very happy with the unique connection I have with Nicky and MARF. We could feel it immediately, and I think you can feel it in the song as well. I already get goosebumps when I think of how “Okay” will sound live at a festival. Wouldn’t it be magical to hear everybody singing ‘together we’ll be okay, we will be okay‘?” – Wulf
