Matthew Koma, 'One Night (Dave Aude Remix)': Exclusive Premiere
Singer-songwriter Matthew Koma released an arresting new single, "One Night," last month, as the lead track from his debut album. On May 21, Koma will drop a four-song "One Night" remix EP -- and Billboard.com is exclusively unveiling the energetic Dave Aude remix of the single. Check out the remix premiere below:
At over six minutes in length, the "One Night" Dave Aude remix enhances the original song's most infectious elements, as Aude, a veteran producer who has switched up recent songs by Rihanna, Chris Brown and Ciara, turns the song into an extended party jam. For Koma, who has toured with Owl City, collaborated with Zedd and Alesso and is dating Carly Rae Jepsen, "One Night" and its remix package represent an opportunity to become a known mainstream entity.
"'One Night' is a really different song than most people are used to hearing from me, being that a lot of my EDM collaborations came out before my own record," says Koma. "In general, 'One Night' is less of a 'dramatic' song compared to 'Spectrum,' 'Clarity,' 'Years,' etc., so it was interesting to hear Dave find a way to bridge the gap."
"Arcadia," Koma's debut album, is due out this fall on Cherrytree/Darkchild/Interscope. Before that, the singer-songwriter will wrap up a European tour supporting Ellie Goulding before heading back to the States this summer.
