Paradise, which was released on June 16th, follows the duo's collaboration on the international successes Hypnotised and In the Dark, both of which were on the German producer and Grammy winner's 2021 album Exotica.
Sophie and the Giants and Purple Disco Machine reunite for their new track Paradise, reuniting one of modern pop music's most inventive and successful collaborations.
After two chart-topping singles, the duo reunites to produce the summer anthem of 2023.
After crafting the song this time, Sophie realised there was only one person who could completely realise Paradise's club-dominating potential: her friend and artistic foil Purple Disco Machine, AKA Tino Piontek.
“I wrote this song as a classic dancefloor hit, welcoming you into my Paradise,” explains Sophie of the new single. “It’s so hypnotic that hedonistic arms will pull you onto the dance floor and make you want to scream out the lyrics while doing things you’ll regret.”
Driven by shimmering synths, an irresistible disco click, and Sophie’s enveloping vocals, Paradise is an evocative escape into a landscape of neon lights, pulsing strobes, and kinetic limbs as the song cascades across the dancefloor, enchanting bodies and minds as it goes.
“I hope Paradise makes people feel completely free and libera, like nothing else matters but this moment,” declares Sophie. “Whoever you are, forget about what is bringing you down ,kiss somebody and move your body to this song!”
Sophie and the Giants and Purple Disco Machine’s first collaboration, 2020’s Hypnotized, was a global hit amassing 425 million streams and 120 million plays on YouTube as it topped charts across Europe. Their second track together, 2022’s In The Dark, has already reached 200 million combined streams and was Number 1 on APC’s chart for the whole of the EU. Both songs have gone Gold and Platinum in a host of countries since their releases.
This long-term success stems directly from Sophie and Tino's strong creative and artistic understanding, which they formed while working together in the studio and on which Paradise draws.
"I'm so excited to be collaborating with Purple Disco Machine for the third time," Sophie says of their most recent musical collaboration. "After the way we worked together on Hypnotised and In The Dark, I knew as soon as I wrote Paradise that it was meant for the two of us."
The new single follows the success of Sophie and the Giants' last single, DNA ft Mearsy, released earlier in 2023, as well as last summer's We Own The Night, which both confirmed the London-based artist's dancefloor credentials. Sophie's tracks have now been streamed over 125 million times (excluding collaborations) have now been streamed over 125 million times internationally, and she has 3.8 million regular Spotify listeners.
Following a series of praised European gigs in late 2022, Sophie and The Giants have announced a 2023 tour, which will include a full sweep of European festivals and a September headline tour, providing a summer Paradise for everyone.
