A few months after releasing his version of Berlin’s “Take My Breath Away”, Duncan Laurence is back to releasing new original music as he releases his new single “Electric Life”. Taking a different direction from the usual style of music he releases, Duncan has teased “the new world he has been creating” in the lyric video of his new single.
About ” Electric Life”
Duncan co-wrote the song with his fiancee Jordan Garfield alongside Leroy Clampitt (who has worked with artists such as Sabrina Carpenter, Jennifer Lopez, Betty Who, Dua Lipa), and Paul Phamous (who was worked with artists such as Frank Ocean, Echomsith, Nick Jonas), who were the producers of the song.
In an article published by udiscovermusic, Duncan mentions that the beginning of the track refers back to “Arcade”; the song that brought him to the limelight with the piano intro, with the track then exploding into an up-tempo pre-chorus. He then goes on to say that ‘Electric Life’ draws influences from Queen and Elton John and the inspiration of seventies pop and its standout characteristics.
In the same article, Duncan explained a bit further what ‘Electric Life’ is about
In ‘Electric Life,’ I sing about a warm, loving and grateful feeling towards loved ones who have passed away. In ‘Electric Life,’ I sing about a warm, loving and grateful feeling towards loved ones who have passed away.
