Paul Oakenfold and Luis Fonsi collaborate on the heartfelt masterpiece 'The World Can Wait' which is the first single from Paul Oakenfold’s new studio album 'Shine On' due later this year.
'The World Can Wait' is a fresh dance track, perfect for the summer months. Awesome beats, with a tremendous vocal from Luis Fonsi make this a banger of a track really satisfying and highly listenable. The unexpected collaboration meshes the artists strengths to produce a heartfelt masterpiece with influences from latin music.
Paul's new album will veer down a decidedly chilled out path, making it not one solely crafted for the dtance floor. While combining Oakenfold’s uplifting, melodic synths with Fonsi’s emotional vocals, they take us on a journey where the hopes of an undeniable connection are enough to conquer the world, especially in these troubled times.
“I just love the song and the meaning of the lyrics. The song came about during a writing session I was doing with a few writers and we took it to Luis Fonsi and his team who loved the song as well. It’s a good taste of what’s to come from my studio album - it’s mostly melodic songs and very cinematic with great singers and interesting beats. It’s something you will want to sit down and listen to in its entirety rather than as individual tracks,”
Co-produced by DJWS ‘The World Can Wait’ is the first single to be released from Paul Oakenfold’s upcoming studio album 'Shine On' due later this year - his first since critically the acclaimed 'A Lively Mind' (2006) and 'Bunkka' (2000).
