Belgian artist Daniel Verstappen’s new single, ‘On My Mind’ will be released on 18 May. Fans can have a sneak peek of the song, with the accompanying video out now.
A trained musician with a masters degree in double bass and piano, and Daniel cut his teeth while playing with world renowned collectives including Night Of The Proms, and the Brussels Philharmonic, as well as with artists such as Andrea Bocelli and Ennio Morricone. His first album, ‘From The Heart’, reflected his classical background and included compositions with orchestral arrangements, as well as some tracks accompanied by electronic music. ‘Soulmate’, the single he released last autumn, demonstrated his true artistic talents, in its complex merging of the two genres.
Daniel’s new track, ‘On My Mind’, is a serene combination of classical orchestration and electronic beats, set to pop vocals. The song tells the old tale of two lovers, albeit with a twist, as shown in the music video. ‘On My Mind’ was produced by Yannick De Pauw, who has worked with Belgium’s National Orchestra, and was mixed and mastered by Austin Leeds, best known for his work with Avicii. The vocals on the track are provided by Anna Monaco.
‘On My Mind’ is out May 18, for which day Daniel has a Facebook Live event planned. The gig will feature a tribute to the much lamented Avicii.
