Omnipresent dance music favourite Paul Woolford has joined forces with Grammy nominated singer-songwriter Amber Mark on new single ‘HEAT’.
Out now via Ministry Of Sound, the song exudes alchemy and is also co-written by Celeste, forming a powerhouse wild combination of talent.
A soaring, optimistic anthem that perfectly embodies Woolford’s trademark touches, ‘HEAT’ expertly combines rousing piano chords and dramatic strings with Amber Mark’s soul-drenched vocals, instilling a sense of hope and yearning for summer months.
Listen to ‘HEAT’ by Paul Woolford x Amber Mark on the Official Premier League Training playlist on Spotify.
It marks Woolford’s first single release of 2021 and follows his recent reworks for Dua Lipa, New Order and multi-disciplinary designer/artist Virgil Abloh. Woolford’s now globally recognised previous single, with Diplo and Kareen Lomax, ‘Looking For Me’, has gone platinum in the UK, 3x platinum in Ireland, is currently Gold in Australia and has amassed more than 100 million combined streams.
Channeling a multifaceted style that implements sounds from hip-hop, R&B, soul and bossanova, Tennessee-born Amber Mark received a Grammy nomination in the category of ‘Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical’ for 2017 debut album Head Over Heels. More recently she dropped three-track EP 1894, with Stereogum describing the title track as “a fun bounce of a song that sees Mark letting loose a little bit, imagining herself in a club at a time when we can’t go to clubs”.
Woolford cites hearing Amber Mark’s song ‘Monsoon’ as an instant classic and the spark for this collaboration. After a career-defining 2020, Paul Woolford steps up into the new year with arguably his finest anthem yet.
