Nicky Romero drops his highly anticipated single “Afterglow” with GATTÜSO and Jared Lee as his first single of 2022, kicking off the new year with a hopeful track fit for a fresh start.

The Protocol label boss incorporates his signature sound by opening with subtle instrumentals beneath soulful vocals that spark a spark of positivity and resilience, which are the themes of “Afterglow.” The melodies gradually build into a seamless progressive crescendo, making it an emotive and yet dance-worthy hit. Nicky first teased the single back in 2019 at The Avicii Tribute Concert in Stockholm and most recently at EDC Las Vegas 2021, keeping his fans hyped for the official release of “Afterglow.”

Nicky Romero ended the year with “Why Do I Call” on Virgin Records/Universal Music and the release of “Your Eyes” with LAMAS (BR) under his dark Monocule side-project.

GATTÜSO, a DJ, producer, and remixer based in New York City, is quickly establishing himself on the global dance music scene. With his first original production, “Who We Are,” he hit the ground running in summer 2018, and in just over a year, he signed an exclusive record deal with legendary dance music label Ultra Records. His songs have been streamed over 400 million times on Spotify and Apple Music, and have been released on Armada, Enhanced Music, Spinnin’ Records, Future House Music, and Ultra Records.

Jared Lee, a Boston-born singer, songwriter, and platinum producer, has amassed well over 80 million online streams and is on track to significantly increase those numbers this year. Recently, Jared has been writing and producing for a diverse group of globally renowned artists such as Jason Derulo, Jordin Sparks, Michael Bolton, Tiësto, and more. Jared has quickly landed a slew of song placements across the television landscape, including NBC, ABC, CBS, ESPN, Showtime, FOX, MTV, and Netflix, thanks to his signature soulful vocals and unmistakable falsetto.
