King Arthur releases his new single and official debut for Casablanca Records, “Laidback.”
“Laidback is the perfect record to begin expanding my Kingdom.” King Arthur talks about his new song, “It’s a fresh take on a classic sound, and the beginning of new sonic era for me, that I couldn’t be more excited about. I’m particularly thrilled to have the cavalry at Casablanca Records leading the charge.”
The acclaimed artist and producer once again elevates his royal and regal repertoire. Hinging on off-kilter sampling, propulsive percussion, and an irresistible refrain, the track welcomes listeners into the center of his court. There’s nothing on the dance floor quite like it!
“Laidback” also heralds yet another evolution for King Arthur. Harking back to the seminal classics from Fatboy Slim and Moby that shaped his formative years, he updates a timeless sound for today’s generation on his forthcoming new EP—coming very soon.
King Arthur’s quiet grind laid the foundation for a royal kingdom that’s unlike anything else in electronic dance music. Released on Don Diablo’s Hexagon, the 2016 full-length debut, Believe In The Kingdom, generated a staggering 20 million-plus streams on Spotify as his total cumulative streams surpassed 47 million.
The Chainsmokers, Axwell & Ingrosso, Martin Garrix, and countless other heavy hitters have tapped the artist, producer, DJ, and remixer for high-profile remixes, while Kaskade, David Guetta, Tiësto, Afrojack and more regularly spin his music live. He teamed up with Bastille on a remix of “World Gone Mad” for the Official Soundtrack Album to NETFLIX’s hit Bright.
He made history by performing at the first-ever dance music event in Pakistan and touched down everywhere from Tomorrowland Mainstage to the Storm Festival.
