Dan D’Lion has shared his brand new single ‘Feels So Good’ via Insanity Records.
Few artists genuinely defy the limits of genre but Dan is one of them. New single ‘Feels So Good’ is the first taste of the Reading-born East Londoner’s most ambitious project to date, combining the base elements of funk and firing them through a prism of influences with timeless soulful vocals and shimmering electro-pop production.
Speaking on the lyrics, Dan explains, “Temptation comes in all shapes and sizes, but everything comes at a cost. ‘Feels So Good’ is about walking the line between paradise and catastrophe.” Alongside the release, Dan D’Lion has announced a headline tour for 2022 in four cities across the UK, including a show at London’s Oslo on March 18.

This month also saw Dan D’Lion receive one of his greatest accolades to date, with the reveal that his track ‘Good Times To Come’ will feature on the FIFA 22 soundtrack
alongside fellow peers Little Simz, Glass Animals, Joy Crookes and Chvrches.

‘Feels So Good’ follows his previous EP FRUITION, released back in May which
marked an experimental and eclectic new phase for Dan D’Lion, a multi-hyphenated artist,
producer and songwriter intent on broadening his horizons. His exploratory spirit has arguably been there from his upbringing in Reading, where Dan’s futuristic, alternative-pop sound first took shape.
Born to a jazz drummer dad and a record collection full of soul from his mum, Dan
grew up encouraged “to make as much of a racket as I could” (he also naturally gravitated
towards the local legacy of rock, and idolised Rage Against The Machine), skipping university to move to London and pursue a career in music.
