Having already brought her vocal enrichment to ‘Winter Kills Me’ and ‘Erase You’, for their latest outing together Grammy Award winning songstress Lady V gives voice to Markus’ reflective, metaphoric, world-watching lyrics.
Backed by his celestial pianos, nightsky chords and luminously contrasting pads, the drop is brought an extra layer of poignancy by elements of JFK’s hope-filled “world peace/community peace” speech. Hooked around Victoria’s irresistible chorus, Markus’ chest-swelling synths ascend, lifting ‘Watch The World’ up to its frisson conclusion.
Think Barbarella meets 2001 – A Space Odyssey in low Earth orbit, the official video for Markus Schulz featuring Lady V – Watch The World is online here!
World peace, like community peace does not require that each man love his neighbor—it requires only that they live together in mutual tolerance, submitting their disputes to a just and peaceful settlement. And history teaches us that enmities between nations, as between individuals, do not last forever”
– John Fitzgerald Kennedy.
