Singer-songwriter and Grammy-nominated producer Dan Lancaster is stepping out into the spotlight with his debut single ‘Move A Mountain’.
Offering a hypnotic mix of electro-pop, synths, and anthemic vibes, ‘Move A Mountain’ is the perfect introduction to Dan’s solo sound as he fuses together elements of his previous experience as an artist. The explosive combination of sounds make us excited for what Dan has up his sleeve in the future.
Speaking about his debut track, Dan said: “The song is about trying to remove thoughts from your head but ultimately having little control over it and the frustration with that. Despite the song coming from a darker place, it was a cathartic release writing it”.
Talking about his decision to launch his solo venture, Dan added: “I produce a lot for other artists, and you get to express yourself that but only up to a point. I’ve always wanted to put something of my own out when the timing was right.”
“I’d been writing in between projects and started to upload little clips to my Instagram, but the turning point was when I wrote ‘move a mountain’ – then it felt like the start of something and the benchmark for everything to follow.”
Take a listen to ‘Move A Mountain’ below’.
Dan is best known for his production, mixing and writing work with some of the world’s biggest artists. The London based creative has worked with the likes of 5 Seconds of Summer, Bring Me The Horizon, Good Charlotte and more. He also worked with Blink 182 on their California album, which was nominated for ‘Best Rock Album’ at the 59th Grammy Awards in 2017.
During his career so far, Dan has scored number one albums across the world, with many of them reaching Platinum and Gold status. He has also been involved in records with over 800 million Spotify streams. Now, he will be hoping to replicate this success with his very own original music.
‘Move A Mountain’ is just the very beginning of Dan’s solo project, as an EP is expected for release later this year. Dan will also be showcasing his talent live for the first time at London’s Oslo, Hackney on October 16 for an exciting gig not to be missed.
