Felix Cartal ft. Karen Harding | Only One

Platinum producer Felix Cartel has announced the release of his upcoming album, 'Expensive Sounds For Nice People' out 25th June via Physical Presents. Ahead of the album release, he has teamed up with British pop icon Karen Harding for 'Only One'.


'Only One' is brimming with high level energy to create the ultimate power pop summer banger which is an instant ear worm to all who listen. Felix Cartal has creates a sure-fire dance floor filler which is fresh but familiar, featuring an infectious pop hook, playful beats and vibrant melodies whilst Karen continues to deliver a striking performance, with her scoring and full throttle vocal.

Felix Cartal tells us about the creation of the single:

"I wrote this one with Karen, Chelsea, and Nick during a spontaneous session in LA. I feel like I have two modes when I make music, mode 1 would be something with an emotional heaviness, and mode 2 would be a response to just break away and make something that's more of an uplifting escape. It was the summer, and I definitely was in mode 2."

Karen Harding further elaborates on the single:

"I loved this writing session. We were all on such a high, and I think it definitely came across in the song. We wanted to write a song about that overwhelming feeling of when you know someone is 'the one', we've all felt it at some point."
