Speaking about the release, Armin van Buuren mentions, “One More Time was written during a writing session in Sweden with the lovely Maia Wright.
I love her energy and wanted to bring back my love for the early house sound of the 90s when I first went clubbing mixed with the current sound.”
Singer-songwriter Maia Wright comments: “We wrote One More Time together in Stockholm earlier this year. We felt that it was something special about it straight away. We wrote the chorus first, and the melody is very uplifting and empowering, so we knew that we needed a lyric to support that feeling. So we wrote about how important it is to have a friend or a partner to go through tough times with. The lines “If you go down I go down” and “we do it one more time, we’ll be fine baby you and I, we’ll just try, do it one more time” really describe the theme of the song. All we can do is be there for each other and help each other to get back up again when life knocks us down.”
