JES, riding high on her current success as the No. 1 artist to watch on Clear Channel’s iHeartRadio, announces the August 2, 2010 release of her second single “Closer” from her critically acclaimed sophomore album High Glow.
“Closer” is a journey into an unforgettable sonic photograph – fusing pop, futuristic electro-dance rhythms and riffs with JES’ uniquely touching vocal performance. The new single brings all fans one step “Closer” together as the song features a universal allure.
The brand new track exhibits strong mainstream crossover appeal and has already created a swarm of remixes. “Closer” features a stellar supporting lineup with many of the hottest remix talent policing the beats. Bimbo Jones takes the floor on a dreamy electro-house journey to the heart of JES’ ethereal vocals, as the Coco Channel’s Klub Edit grooves its way through “Closer” with plenty of breathy JES vocal treatment.
Jim Jacobsen pares down “Closer” to an introspective, minimal sound with soul-tingling touches of dub and Twisted Disko takes a sassy midnight trip through “Closer” morphing vocals and melody into a sonic Picasso. Josh Harris’ lush remix is a harmonic summer sunset laced with danceable builds & breaks. Newcomers, Marc Lime & K Bastian’s synthy affair evokes a swanky eighties dance floor with its fierce melody. Loverush UK!’s production and JES’ vocals combine in a rare and passionate embrace that you don’t ever want to end, while Kris O’Neil’s remix is the deepest and bassists of the bunch with flashy drums and huge vocal drops.
With the heartfelt electro-dance pop anthem, “Closer’ the Queen of Rocktronica continues to shine more brightly than ever. High Glow‘s huge success builds upon JES’ 2007 debut Disconnect that spawned the Top 20 Billboard Dance Radio hits, “Ghost” and “Heaven,” as well as the monster Billboard No. 1 Dance Radio Hit “Imagination.” JES is no stranger to creating impressive statistics having been responsible for the AOL Dance Radio #10 airplay hit of the year in 2009 for “My Love” and the 4th most popular dance track of the entire last decade with her legendary dance anthem “As the Rush Comes” with Motorcycle.
The new single “Closer” will be available worldwide starting August 2nd including online at iTunes, Amazon.com. UltraRecords.com, BlackHolerecordings.com, and select retail outlets worldwide. JES will promote “Closer” throughout the summer across North America, featuring shows at RedRocks Amphitheatre, Palms Casino Resort inside Rain, Las Vegas and an appearance at the famed Calgary Stampede and Rodeo, in Canada.
