Etherwood offers the first glimpse into his highly-anticipated second album with a brand new single on Med School. Instantly captivating, “You’ll Always Be A Part Of Me” is a three-minute escape that exudes the polished Etherwood essence that we’ve come to expect, surrounded by symphonic melodies and emotive lyrics. His own instantly-recognisable vocals are accompanied by poignant piano chords and downtempo percussion, creating a powerful yet simultaneously elegant and melancholic piece.
Etherwood’s self-titled debut album culminated in widespread acclaim and several accolades including Best Newcomer DJ and Producer at the Drum & Bass Arena Awards. It demonstrated a hint of his musical prowess, but “You’ll Always Be a Part of Me” clearly illustrates how his skills as a songwriter and musician have flourished since then. 2014 was an extremely important year for this continually-growing artist as he delivered stunning remixes for the likes of Gorgon City and Alex Clare and contributed vocals to Fred V & Grafix’s “Forest Fires” which shot up the BBC Radio 1 playlist. Etherwood also assembled a live band to perform a number of tracks from his debut album at the iconic Maida Vale Studio for broadcast on BBC Radio 1 & 1Xtra.
Following on from the incredibly well received “Amen Roadtrip” released in January as part of Hospital Records’ “Hospitality 2015” compilation, this new single is reminiscent of Etherwood’s signature sound and embodies his unique ability to combine the organic with the electronic whilst moving several significant steps forward.
