Embrace originally featured on one of Goldroom's earlier EPs, and I've been hooked to it's big warm sunny synths since I first heard it... Here with the addition of George Maple's vocal we get to hear the version Goldroom always had in his head - he and Maple wrote the song together, so it's fitting we now get this new version with her lovely vocals. In the artist's own words:
"George Maple and I actually wrote Embrace together, so having this come full circle, and to have her singing on the song, feels like a dream. The song Embrace is all about re-connection, and so having George back in my studio again, singing the song, felt like it was meant to be."
I first heard the original version of Embrace back when it was a little colder and more wintery here in the northern hemisphere, so it's fitting to have it bubble up again now it is getting warmer... Particularly as it now features the awesome talents of George Maple. Love it.
Embrace is taken from Goldroom's new EP It's Like You Never Went Away, out now on Downtown Records.
