Jax Jones, Martin Solveig, GRACEY & Europa - Lonely Heart
3 Jun 2022
Jax Jones and Martin Solveig return today as Europa, alongside rising popstar GRACEY for their new single ‘Lonely Heart’. The track follows Jax’s storming set at Radio 1’s Big Weekend, and comes ahead of his appearance performing at The Queen’s Platinum Party at the Palace concert for the Jubilee, on Saturday 4th June.
‘Lonely Heart’ showcases a darker side to the Europa’s catalogue, with GRACEY’S melancholic and brooding vocals and lyrics guiding the persevering house beats.
"'Lonely Heart' is about what I want to do on the dancefloor; bring all the lonely hearts together! Jax Jones is for everyone. Martin, Gracey and I - we include everyone, that’s what my music stands for, that’s what I stand for." - Jax Jones
Europa is Jax Jones and Martin Solveig: two friends who also just so happen to be multi-platinum artists, pushing each other to investigate musical avenues they'd never explore ontheir own. The pair’s bond was immediate, cemented by a hug from Martin after hearing Jax DJ for the first time at Pacha Ibiza. The two had admired each other's work for some time, but the more they chatted, the more they wondered if they should get into the studio and take this admiration to another level. Jax explains, “On that very first day in the studio we each felt the bubble of our natural comfort zones burst.”
A genre-agnostic project, Europa prides itself without hard borders, and is a celebration of frictionless relationships with the rest of the world. As Jax and Martin explain, “Europa has allowed both of us to step out from what everybody else might consider reasonable. Music doesn't have to be reasonable. You might even say it shouldn't be.”
