“Sunny Days is about the pursuit of happiness, no matter the circumstances you’re in.”
More than ever at the moment, music provides the perfect antidote to times of trouble and uncertainty. Dennis Ferrer’s anticipated ‘Sunny Days’ is a perfect example, balancing joy, soul and reflection with a stunning dose of house goodness. Making his return to Defected after a four-year hiatus, this suitably triumphant homecoming is so aptly timed it’s almost hard to believe it has existed on a hard drive in Dennis’ studio for some time.
Speaking of the release Dennis said, “Sunny Days is about the pursuit of happiness, no matter the circumstances you’re in. It’s about trying to see the world through a child’s eyes and knowing, that the sun will come out again. I wrote and recorded the vocals ages ago, yet they still ring true today. That goes to show you: life never stops throwing challenges at you; what defines you, is how you cope with it.”
Defected's long-running partnership with Dennis Ferrer has a remarkable and prolific history. Some of the label’s biggest crossover hits have been delivered courtesy of Dennis’ incredibly intuitive production skill, including ‘Hey Hey’, ‘Mind Ur Step’ and ‘Church Lady’. Now returning with ‘Sunny Days’, with a powerful lead vocal provided by Dawn Tallman, Dennis’ (now grown-up) children also sing on the track, their youthful voices reciting Dennis’ Sunny Days ‘mantra’: Let us find the way, let us celebrate, till our sunny days come around.
Sunny Days will be released via Defected on 21st August.
