Aruna's 'Save the Day' Single Gets 10/8 Release
Aruna, the esteemed dance music songbird whose distinct vocals and honest lyrics have captured the hearts of fans around the world, will release her much-anticipated single 'Save The Day' October 8 on Black Hole Recordings.
"'Save The Day' has been a long time in the making and I'm really proud of how it turned out. It was truly a labor of love," Aruna says.
A poignant break-up song, 'Save The Day' tells the story of that moment you realize the magic has left a relationship and isn't coming back. Having gone through the experience herself, Aruna says that moment tends to be even sadder than the breakup itself.
"It's like the death of innocence or the loss of hope," she says. "One thing I like in particular with this song, though, is the contrast between the title and the actual lyrical content. It sounds so triumphant and heroic when you hear the title but when you actually start digging inside the lyrics, it's the complete opposite of that."
'Save The Day' follows Aruna's debut solo single, 'Let Go,' which was released on Anjunabeats in 2010. 'Let Go' cracked the iTunes Dance Top 200 singles chart at #150 and was the second most popular download from the album.
Touted by Above & Beyond's Tony McGuiness as "one of the most talented singer/songwriters around at the moment," Aruna's resume doesn't stop there. She's penned a chart-topping single recorded by Miley Cyrus for the multi-platinum selling #1 Billboard Hannah Montana soundtrack and recently added DJing to her arsenal of skills. Trance Around the World, the popular radio show produced weekly by Above & Beyond, showcased Aruna's talent for track selection and mashups when she hosted the guest mix on August 31.
"I was honored to be the first solo female asked to provide a guest mix for TATW," she says. "It's been a huge goal of mine ever since I started DJing."
Aruna's DJing has since seen a staggering increase in demand as her bi-weekly podcast, The Hot List, rocketed to #14 on the iTunes music podcast chart after the TATW guest mix aired. On the show, she takes listeners on an hour-long journey through her personal favorites in progressive house and trance, often selecting her own mashups and forthcoming releases with an eye on quality vocal tracks aimed at pleasing a variety of tastes.
