Nicky Romero returns to Virgin Records/Universal Music with “Why Do I Call,” a new dance-pop crossover gem that follows up on his debut “Nights With You” from last year.
The Dutch veteran producer once again showcases his dynamic abilities by opening with soulful vocals and organic instrumentals, letting the heartfelt lyrics shine before leading into a deep house-influenced chorus. The song is for anyone who has ever wanted to go back in time, and it adds a rhythmic dance twist to an otherwise radio-friendly song.
Nicky Romero began his partnership with Virgin/Universal and forayed into the softer side of electronic dance music just last year, after also launching his underground side-project Monocule while running his imprint Protocol Recordings, and we can’t wait to hear what he has in store for us next.
Why Do I Call marks the 15th release for the Dutch legend during 2021. From electronic mainstage bangers to pop and radio-friendly singles, Mr. Romero has shown the world, once again, his polyhedric skills when it comes to music production. He also released four records under his new Monocule alias, Including You Don’t Knowwhich has now overcome the 2.6 M Spotify streams.
