Paces - Siren feat. Guy Sebastian
17 Aug 2018
Australian producer Paces today releases his latest single ‘Siren’ featuring none other than Aussie pop royalty, Guy Sebastian. ‘Siren’ is the last single lifted from Paces’ upcoming album ZAG before the LP drops next Friday, August 24th. No strangers to working together, Guy featured on Paces’ 2016 single ‘Desert’ from his debut album Vacation, and the pair also teamed up for Paces’ acclaimed triple j Like A Version which they smashed out of the ballpark, breaking the internet in the process.
Paces explains how the new collab came about: “I’ve had the extreme good fortune of working with Guy on quite a few projects now. For ‘Siren’ we recorded a bunch of takes which were all great, then I told him to go back into the booth and do it one more time so I could film it for Instagram. That's the take that I ended up using! Also shout out to my dude Shockone for adding his touch to the track. When this album was nearly finished I needed someone with fresh ears to help me push it that extra mile. We had some intense studio sessions and watched a lot of Skrillex film clips.”
Dropping next Friday, August 24th, ZAG features a plethora of collaborations from the likes of rising Aussie stars Midas.Gold, CLYPSO, Reija Lee and Doolie, plus a raft of international features such as LA duo Gladiator, Emmalyn from G.R.L., Raven Felix who is signed to Wiz Khalifa’s Taylor Gang label and 18-year-old US singer and cancer survivor Caly Bevier, showing the breadth of Paces’ skill as a producer and his eye for scouting talent across all genres. ZAG also features Paces’ 2017 single ‘Savage’, which has amassed over 10 million streams online and got picked up by Republic Records in the US.In celebration of ZAG’s release, Paces will be hitting the road throughout November and December, taking his brand new live show on tour across the country on an epic 14-date tour.
