Air Supply to Release New Dance Single, 'Desert Sea Sky'
Still a global sensation performing for audiences across the U.S. and throughout the world every year, the famed hitmaking duo Air Supply (www.airsupplymusic.com) is hotter and more creative than ever as they groove into the dance/club world for the first time with their infectious new single "Desert Sea Sky."
Penned by the duo's Graham Russell, the track has received the royal studio treatment by famed UK remix wizards The Wideboys, who have created multiple remixes for promotion across the board to Billboard dance club DJs, clubs, radio stations and the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart.
The Wideboys have worked their studio magic for scores superstar artists since 2000, including Alicia Keys, Britney Spears, Enrique Iglesias, Tao Cruz featuring Kylie Minogue, Beyonce, Emile Sande, Miley Cyrus, Pussycat Dolls, Nelly Furtado, Usher, Ke$ha, Katy Perry, Maroon 5 and Robin Thicke.
"Desert Sea Sky," released on the Air Supply Music label, is being worked to the club market, DJs and dance radio by Brad LeBeau, founder of ProMotion, one of the most successful promo companies in the dance/EDM (electronic dance music) genre.
LeBeau says, "Seldom in my marketing firm's 30 year history, has an über-popular act been able to sustain themselves for three decades, let alone re-invent their sound. Such is case, however, with Australian music icons Air Supply, whose latest single, 'Desert, Sea, Sky' - remixed by U.K. production team, The Wideboys - makes them as relevant amongst today's EDM movement as their legendary ballads were in the 1980's. Well done, gentlemen. Well done."
"This is a whole new genre for us, and when we play it as the encore in our live shows, we can see the look on everyone's faces, like, 'wow, this is different," says Russell. "But at the same time they're moving and really digging the groove, which is a lovely thing to see. We have all the ballads and melodies in songs we became famous for, but now we're blending those with a whole other vibe. 'Desert Sea Sky' is exciting because it's creating a new pathway for us. Someone I talked to recently compared us to a massive tree with roots deep in the ground - and now there's another branch coming out of the trunk!"
His partner Russell Hitchcock adds, "It's not what you'd expect from Air Supply, but why not? We've got nothing to prove, but don't want to rest on our laurels, either."
