Multi-platinum producer Jonas Blue has teamed up with acclaimed British singer-songwriter Julian Perretta for the captivating new single “Perfect Melody,” which is out now courtesy of Astralwerks.
After meeting at a French festival in 2016, the two artists stayed in touch and—as Blue began working on his forthcoming album, Together—the door opened for them to finally collaborate. “Perfect Melody” is the perfect soundtrack for summer romance with Perretta’s piercing yet playful vocals bobbing atop a soulful guitar, infectious beat and breezy keyboards.
Perretta has been turning heads ever since Mark Ronson asked him to join him on a 2008 European tour with Amy Winehouse. Shortly thereafter, Beyoncé invited Perretta to support on her U.S. and U.K. tours. His breakthrough single “Wonder Why” appeared on his 2010 debut album, Stitch Me Up, which highlighted Perretta’s remarkable musical maturity and unique range.
Karma, his 2016 follow-up album, featured the hits “Miracle,” “I Cry,” and “Karma.” “Miracle” quickly became an international anthem, topping the charts in 13 countries and selling over four million singles worldwide. He performed the track in front of one million people at the opening ceremony of the EUFA European Football Championship and for 80,000+ fans at Stade De France, where he opened for Beyoncé. Perretta has also worked Ed Sheeran, Lil Baby, Lost Frequencies, Kygo, ZHU, and numerous other artists.
“Perfect Melody” is the second track that Blue has shared from Together, which will be released within the next year. “Don’t Wake Me Up,” his collaboration with hotly-tipped U.S. band Why Don’t We, was released in February 2022 and has since amassed over 100 million combined global streams. Together, which will also feature additional yet-to-be-announced global talents, is based on the theme of togetherness, unity and positivity—a crucial message that’s needed now more than ever and that’s synonymous with Blue’s music and successful career to date.
