Marking his first full-length studio album in over a decade, Grammy Award-winning producer David Morales releases Life Is A Song on his DIRIDIM imprint.
Encompassing the true essence of David Morales, Life Is A Song opens a new chapter in his illustrious career. Showcasing his masterful orchestration of old school sounds and modern sensibilities, this long player takes listeners on a sonic journey across fifteen tracks, bursting with soul and undeniable groove. Featuring an array of established and up-and-coming artists, Morales joins forces with previous collaborators Blakkat, blondewearingblack, Delta, DJ Rae, Elle Cato, Lea Lorien, Michelle Perera, Mr. V, Toshi and Ultra Naté, and adds new names to his collaborative discography with Babygirl, Joe Roberts, Scott Paynter and Tilly.
Complete with numerous dance-ready cuts (The Feels, Easy, Come Undone, No Boundaries, What Can I Do and Hela), a host of uplifting creations (Never Give Up, Never Looking Back, I Can Dream and Life Is A Song) and some more emotive offerings (Can’t Get Enough, Come The Moment and Second Chance), this diverse new opus gives a first-hand insight into Morales’ vast musical musings. Working his magic on Donna Summer’s iconic anthem I Feel Love, and revisiting his own classic In De Ghetto with a new makeover Party In De Ghetto, Morales also demonstrates his innate ability to evolve with the generations, whilst keeping the fibre of his foundations alive.
“Life Is A Song is a collection of music I wrote during the lockdown and is a reflection of where my head is at musically. My personal life is expressed through music, and without travel & touring, I had more time than ever to focus on producing. Over that period, and thanks to technology, I worked with some new artists, and collaborated with others that I had worked with before. There are lots of great sounds and textures out there, and I have been evolving and exploring, but always keep that classic groove. There’s plenty more to follow, but for now I hope that it can spread positivity and joy to all who hear it.” – David Morales
