You just released “Something Strange” featuring Haley Reinhart!


Today, we got a chance to chat with them about their most recent collaboration with Haley Reinhart: “Something Strange.” For three years the chart-toppers have been putting the pieces in place for this project and we couldn’t be happier to share in the excitement for this monster release! 

What was that experience like, working with her on the song and music video?
Amazing! Haley is the real deal. It’s rare that you get to work with such a talented singer. She wrote most of the vocals by herself, meant for another artist, written over another track of ours. We put her acapella over another song we made, which is what “Something Strange” is today. We had to convince her to keep her own voice on the track too. Isn’t that crazy? She sings brilliantly and we’re glad we kept her on. The music video was a lot of fun to shoot too. We flew to L.A. and spent the whole day in this huge hall. We had a few instruments that we played while Haley did the singing. It all felt very natural and everybody involved is happy with the end result.

How long did it take to produce “Something Strange” from start to finish?

All things together, about 3 years. We initially had a different vocal over the instrumental. We weren’t convinced that this was the right vocal and after a while, Victor tried to put the Something Strange vocal on top of this instrumental. We both loved it, but were busy with other tracks and shelved it for a few months. Later on, Ruben found it again and we decided to work on this for real. We reached out to Haley, re-recorded the vocals in a proper studio, and the rest is history!

A couple of hours ago Tusk tweeted that he heard Something Strange on Seattle FM radio.  The channel is 89.6 "SEATTLE'S HOME FOR DANCE".  I looked at their playlist and at this time it shows they played it three times today.

I just got in the car picking up my Dad to drive him home on the Peninsula.... The radio volume was low, but something in my brain said, "I recognise that voice!" .  I reached to see if it was playing from my iPhone (hooked up on Blutooth) and it wasn't.  I turned the volume up and sure enough, it was SS Cool

I usually listen to talk radio when I drive, my presets are normally rock stations on FM, but for some reason, today, it was set on C895 FM (I added it to my presets when the station started playing SS months ago)....so, yeah, weird.  I don't remember putting my radio to that station, I'm not a big "EDM guy" otherwise I never would've caught it Smile

This was a bit cooler than the last time I heard SS on this station, the first time, I saw it was on the schedule and waited for it to play online.  Today, it was completely spontaneous and a great surprise Big Grin

Currently the song is listed at #30 on the chart.

DKHTLY continues to get multiple plays per day on that Seattle station.  I don't see any uptick in views on YT posting of the song.

Something Strange broke out into the iTunes 200 Top Songs(Dance) last week. It has been climbing the ladder since then. Currently, it is setting at the 121 position.

It should break through #100 this week.
