Guitarist Cory Wong and Stockholm, Sweden-based pop trio Dirty Loops shared a new song, “Follow The Light.” The track is set to land on a forthcoming collaborative album, Turbo, due out later this year.
Cory Wong detailed how he came to team up with Dirty Loops in a statement. Read his words below:
My first interaction with Dirty Loops was with the viral videos of them doing insane arrangements of pop songs. Their musicianship is absolutely top tier. The only thing I thought was, Where’s the guitar?!? As I sat playing guitar along with the videos from my studio, I thought that I should reach out and see if they wanted to collaborate on something. Usually, a collaboration is just one song or a writing session, but I’ve been exploring the idea of doing collaborative albums with other artists because it allows the two visions of the artists to intermingle more and find more unique ways to blend together to create something new. This project really brought a lot of the musical chops side of my playing out that I often restrain from putting on my albums, and I added some restraint to parts of songs that they might get really intricate. It ended up being a perfect representation of both Cory Wong and Dirty Loops as artists and what a true collaborative project can be.
“This record was a blast to make,” Dirty Loops’ Henrik Linder added. “We hope the excitement is contagious but remember to keep your distance.”
“Follow The Light” arrived with an accompanying music video. Watch it below:
