“Favorite Sound” is a warm, bubbly blanket of melody and emotional honestly. The lyrics are refreshingly open and encouraging. Echosmith’s singer Sydney Sierota assures dancers that you don’t have to apologize for being yourself, and the effervescent hook happily replaces the voices in our heads that would question our inner strength.
“The goal behind ‘Favorite Sound’ was to create something super pretty and meaningful,” sharesAudien. “The lyrics speak to us a lot right now, and I am glad we could put something out that is relevant to us currently. I always work on songs that I connect with but they typically come out so much later, but this song is literally brand new and I’m feeling it in a big way.”
On the songwriting and artistic process, Echosmith lead singer Sydney Sierota shares, “Writing this song came so naturally because it comes from such a personal place for me. It started in our home studio in LA and it ended up becoming one of my favorite collaborations. The creative process itself felt surprisingly easy and I love that we were able to give each other really honest input considering we were all just getting to know each other. I think every good collaboration starts with artists who respect each other’s art and are genuine fans of each other, and it totally felt that way for us.”Audien is widely known for his official remixes of songs by Bastille (“Pompeii”), Bruno Mars(“Treasure”), Halsey (“Colors”), and Nile Rogers (“Kill The Lights”) that have captivated the club and festival circuits around the world. He has topped the Billboard Dance Club charts, headlined major global EDM festivals including Electric Zoo, Tomorrowland, and Lollapalooza, and produced original collaborations with major recording artists Lady Antebellum and MAX. The multifaceted musician currently boasts nearly 2 million monthly listeners on Spotify and has clocked over 270 million streams on the platform alone.
Audien received his big break in in 2014 when he remixed Bastille’s “Pompeii,” which was heavily supported in the club and festival circuits and earned him a GRAMMY Award nomination for “Best Remixed Recording, Non Classical.” Audien signed to Astralwerks the following year and released his debut EP, Daydreams, which included the hit single “Something Better,” a dance-country crossover hit with superstars Lady Antebellum that marked the first time Audien debuted on the Billboard Top 40 Pop chart after it had already reached #1 onBillboard’s Dance Club Songs chart.
Audien remains a mainstay act in Las Vegas with past residencies at Marquee, XS Nightclub, Encore Beach Club, and Drai’s Nightclub. Tickets to upcoming tour dates can be purchased on Auden’s official website at audiendj.com.
