Benny Benassi Releases ‘Lightwaves’ with Anabel Englund: Listen – Billboard

Benny Benassi and Anabel Englund are seeing the “Light”.

On Friday (May 13), the Italian legend and American star will release their first collaboration, “Lightwaves,” via Ultra Records. The track is a hard, sultry slice of electro-pop with a soaring chorus of singing about wanting to touch you, feel you, need you, baby. Listen to the track below.

“Working on this song with Benny has me screaming,” says Englund in a statement. “He takes me back to my early raver days, and I’m so happy it’s all come full circle. I am honored to collaborate with him. I love what we created and I’m ready to share it with the world.”

“As we were working on the first idea for the track that would become ‘Lightwaves,’ I immediately thought of Anabel,” adds Benassi. “I love her voice and her style! She brought her unique touch to the lyrics and the melody and absolutely crushed it.”

On May 10, Benassi also made an appearance at Eurovision 2022, which takes place this week in Turin, Italy. For her performance in her native country, Benassi was joined by Italian composer Dardust and a fleet of dancers to perform a piano and orchestral medley of international Italian hits from across the decades. This medley included Benassi’s own songs “Golden Nights” and the all-time classic, “Satisfaction”. The latter track spent 54 weeks on the Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales chart after its release in 2010.

Both “Lightwave” artists are currently on tour, with Benassi playing in Las Vegas and across Europe through the end of August and Englund booked for large-scale festivals, including EDC Las Vegas later this month and Rock In Rio, which will have place in Brazil in September. .
