The 47-year-old Frenchman and former No1 DJ, David Guetta is all set to release his new album. The album has taken him three years to complete and Guetta explains why!
“The reason why it took me so much time is that I wanted to come with something that has not been done and I wanted to reinvent myself. One Love made me famous for that combination of urban and dance that was new at the time, but it’s been done so much. I really wanted to do something else and it was a little bit, like, a moment in my life and my career: What type of life do I want? Do I want to play it safe and apply my recipe and be like, “OK I’m at the top of my game”?”
Guetta has had to think of new ways to recreate his sound and move back into the spotlight of electronic music.
“Until today I was always starting with the beat and then writing the song on it. This time I was starting with piano, voice and guitar, then producing around the song. I’ve really changed everything, like the way I was working, the people I was working with – everything.”
While most DJs have grown tired of the EDM sound and are shifting focus to deep house, others are looking out for the new electronic genre bandwagon to jump on. Its only a while before we realize what Guetta has truly been upto the past few years.
