BRANDO STARTS 2021 WITH FRESH TAKE ON PETER ANDRE’S ‘MYSTERIOUS GIRL’

Close To You - Single by Brando | Spotify

After garnering huge success last year with ‘Look Into My Eyes’ and his latest single ‘Don’t Call Me’, Brando is stepping into 2021 with a similar goal in mind. His new single, ‘Close To You’, sees the American singer and songwriter flip Peter Andre’s ‘Mysterious Girl’ in signature fashion, showing exactly why he is widely tipped as an artist to watch.

Hitting the sweet spot between easy listening and sheer infectiousness, Brando’s ‘Close To You’ is about wanting to get romantically closer to someone you don’t know but want to. A perfectly executed reimagination of Peter Andre’s multi-million-streaming, top-10-charting hit single, this record will have you hooked in an instant like love at first sight. Combined with a stunning music video, this single is the perfect anthem for the upcoming Valentine’s Day.

Brando: “I loved the process of making this song, especially since the original by Peter Andre was such a big facet of my childhood. Ultimately, everyone goes through a moment in life where they find someone they are totally infatuated with and want to get to know, and I think this song perfectly illustrates that. I hope my fans love it!”

Drawing inspiration from the numerous musical influences he indulged in throughout his formative years, California-based Brando was a major force behind Canadian duo Loud Luxury’s multi-million-stream, multi-platinum-selling hit song ‘Body’ (well over 700 million streams on Spotify) and Don Diablo’s ‘Congratulations’ (more than 27 million streams on Spotify), the latter of which shot up the U.S. Mediabase Dance Chart through a surge of radio plays. The 2020 single ‘Look Into My Eyes’, which samples Charles & Eddie’s ‘Would I Lie To You’, spent ten weeks on #1 in Australia’s airplay chart, dethroning The Weeknd’s ‘Blinding Lights’ as most-played song of the year whilst entering the Spotify Top 200 in Australia, Austria, Germany, Sweden and New Zealand, all while clocking up over 30 million streams across the most popular streaming platforms.
