When I heard that Tony Moran and Jason Walker were releasing new music, I was thrilled. Since their hit songs, “So Happy” and “Say Yes,” I’ve become a fan!
Their new song, “I’m in Love With You” is another euphoric dance anthem, the third song from this powerhouse duo whose previous tracks, “So Happy” and “Say Yes,” both climbed to the #1 position on the Billboard club charts. “The song starts with a steady continuum that reflects a steadfast love. It then breaks out into a joyous enthusiasm that embraces today’s electronic music,” explains Tony Moran.
Ironically when they’ve released their previous tracks, “So Happy” and “Say Yes,” I was experiencing a bit of turmoil, at a meager point in my life, and feeling unhappy with my life, but their tracks lifted my spirits. When listening to “I’m in Love With You,” I am reminded that life has its ups and downs, but no matter how complicated it might seem we have a lot to celebrate. The song’s lyricist, Mike Greenly agrees, “Bad things can and do happen… but the song’s message makes it loud and clear that regardless of all the upheaval, we can still celebrate the friends and family that brighten our daily lives.”
“Part of what I find so special about Jason is the phenomenal way he conveys that he’s actually feeling my words as he sings them. That’s tremendously important to me as a lyricist,” adds Greenly. “Also the way he so confidently delivers them, daring to do things with his voice that many artists wouldn’t and couldn’t. But Jason pulls it off!”
Jason says it’s easy for him to express the passion in the songs because he lives it every day. “I’ve been lucky to experience intense love, both in my personal and business lives. I’m most fervent about my music.”
To support the release of their next collaboration, Mr. Tanman Music has commissioned remixes from top names in dance music including Rosabel, Moto Blanco, Sted E and Hybrid Heights, Mike Cruz, Tony Smith (“Tony’s Soulbeats”), Tommer Mizrahi, Strobe, Dinaire and Bissen, Boris and more.
Moran and Walker also re-enlisted videographer, Karl Giant, the director of the “So Happy” and “Say Yes” music videos. Giant, in turn, brought in the artist, Randy Polumbo to create a visual work of art for “I’m in Love with You.”
The video was shot in Polumbo’s 4,000-square-foot warehouse studio and the “The RINK” at Brookfield Place in NYC. Olympians Melissa Gregory and Denis Petukhov choreographed “I’m in Love with You” for the ice. The video features figure skater Jeremy Abbott, a four-time US national champion, and Olympic bronze medalist.
“The set was like a playground with art everywhere, an elevated RV, blow torches, an ice rink… It was simply magical,” recalls Jason. He says he is thrilled with the end-result, calling it a masterpiece of motion and color. “I could write a book about my love for Karl, Tony, Mike, Ryan and everyone who helped bring ‘I’m in Love with You’ to life,” he says. “There is truly no one else like this team we have assembled, and I’m in love with them all. They believe in me, and I most certainly believe in them.”
Jason Walker will debut his new song with Tony Moran, “I’m in Love with You,” at Pangea NYC on June 22nd.
