Sheppard have also just revealed a latin re-work of their latest hit, ‘Edge Of The Night’, featuring Colombian hitmaker Sebastián Yatra. Listen here.
Yatra is one of the hottest new talents in Latin America having recently signed globally to Universal Music, and has hit over 6.5 million monthly listeners on Spotify. No slouch themselves in the Latin American territories, Sheppard’s ‘Geronimo’ went platinum in Mexico and was a massive hit throughout the region, resulting in a blistering performance at the world’s largest music festival, Brazil’s Rock In Rio. Watch the footage here.
“We love what Yatra does as an artist and it’s a real privilege to work with him on bringing a new dimension to Edge of the Night, said George Sheppard. “We can’t wait to get back over to South America to play some shows soon!”
Sheppard recently completed a UK tour supporting Little Mix, and closed the Barclaycard Stage before Justin Bieber took to the main stage at London’s BST. The band also played two headline shows of their own in both Glasgow and London. ‘Edge Of The Night’ proved to be a huge hit with their new-found fans.
