"Forever" is the massive follow up to the successful debut 'Illmerica' by Wolfgang Gartner and the song has already generated huge amount of buzz over in the US. It's a fiery electro tune with an unmistakable Wolfgang Gartner sound that features will.i.am singing, "Baby, let's party all night long/ Let's make it last forever." The Black Eyed Peas also threw in a set of bars to create a devastating dance anthem.
In fact, WG and will.i.am have been sitting on the track for some time now — it was recorded a year and a half ago - and is set to be the second single off of Gartner's as yet untitled upcoming album. And Gartner said the duo's pairing was organic.
"Forever" holds a special place in WG's heart. It seems to him that the song pays homage to the current swell of appreciation for dance music around the world —
"To me, it just has this energy of 'let's make this last forever,' meaning let's make this dance music thing — because right now dance music hit another peak worldwide.. These festivals are selling out and the crowds are bigger than they have ever been. So there's something really good going on right now — let's make it last forever. Let's keep this going for as long as we can."
Cut from the same cloth of dance music enthusiasm, it's a romantic thought will.i.am seems to share. "You are about to hear some stuff that will inspire you. And I was inspired by Wolfgang Gartner before we even made that song. Wolfgang Gartner is an anomaly. He's a DJ, a musician, a fan of music, a hater, a lover.
FOREVER is released on MOS Recordings on October 9th.
