Claptone 'Wake Up' feat. James Vincent McMorrow [Different Recordings / PIAS]

With clubs across the globe readying themselves to open back up, the mysterious & truly enigmatic Claptone returns, ready to shake-up the dancefloor with his brand new single ‘Wake Up’. Serving up a smooth and summer ready 4/4 house cut; layered key notes working their around warm feel good grooves and the soulful vocal lines of platinum selling singer-songwriter James Vincent McMorrow.


“Let Wake Up conquer your heart with intensely deep and honest lyrics on a bed of garage bass with a side of powerful uplifting piano stabs. There’s a yearning deeply rooted in too many months of isolation, an emotional congestion that erupts on the dancefloor of the first festival after far too long. James Vincent McMorrow's wonderfully soft, husky soul voice on this piece of vintage 90s pop house evokes moments of happiness and melancholia at the same time.” – Claptone


“Wake Up” also marks the announcement of Claptone’s 3rd Studio album CLOSER, set for release on 12th November .


Also watch out for remixes of ‘Wake Up’ – coming soon!
