To the average listener, Russian producer href="http://dancingastronaut.com/tag/arty/" >Arty‘s latest track, “ href="http://dancingastronaut.com/2017/09/arty-supposed/" >Supposed To Be,” with vocalist Coyle Girelli might just sound like another fun, electronic-pop crossover.
Take a closer look at the href="https://www.discogs.com/Arty-Supposed-to-Be/release/10814873" >song’s credits, though: Artem Stolyarov, Girelli, David Brook, Smarterchild and… href="http://dancingastronaut.com/tag/bruce-springsteen/" >Bruce Springsteen?
The 67-year-old rock legend appears to have had a part in Arty’s latest piece of work, marking Springsteen’s entrance into the ever-growing dance music scene. Over his many years as a musician, “The Boss” has won 20 Grammy awards and sold more than 120 million records worldwide, making him one of rock music’s most decorated and celebrated artists of all time.
“Supposed To Be,” which came out Sept. 8 on href="http://www.dancingastronaut.com/tag/martin-garrix-2/" >Martin Garrix‘s selective href="http://dancingastronaut.com/tag/STMPD-Records/" >STMPD Records, is an emotion-packed pop song that dips its toes lightly into the electronic side of music. With a focus on stirring vocals and light guitar undertones, Springsteen’s involvement makes sense. Parts of the introduction and verses even seem to echo loosely of Springsteen’s 1982 hit, “Atlantic City.”
While how such a collaboration came to be remains unknown, we can rest assured knowing that if The Boss had something to do with it, the piece of work will be a masterpiece.
