Hot on the heels of their latest EP, “Nights Like This”, Loud Luxury Teams Up With Frank Walker On New Single “Like Gold” Featuring Stephen Puth
The new collaboration from Loud Luxury and Frank Walker “Like Gold” marks the next dance-pop hybrid track from Loud Luxury. Combining a suspenseful instrumental backdrop with immersive vocals that draw listeners in by the dozen, this 24-karat collab with Frank Walker and L.A.-based singer-songwriter Stephen Puth is as pure, precious, and sought-after as its title implies.
Loud Luxury Says about the new single: “We’ve been friends with Frank since our university days playing shows across Canada,” Loud Luxury explain. “When we moved to Los Angeles, we met Stephen and we quickly became great friends. The vocal for ‘Like Gold’ actually started when he was over at our house for a barbecue. After a few drinks, we convinced Stephen to jump into the booth and that’s how the song started. Bringing together where we came from and where we are today into one song was very special to us. We hope you enjoy!“
Frank Walker Says: “This is such a special song for me, as I’ve been close with Andrew & Joe (Loud Luxury) for years,” He adds. “We all started DJing at the same time in university, have played countless shows together, and have been looking for the perfect record to collab on for a long time. To me, ‘Like Gold’ is the perfect combination of what we can both bring to the table: a mix of driving basslines, melodic breakdowns, and lyrics that are both ballad-y and hooky at the same time. We all put a special part of ourselves into this record and I think it really shows. The final touch that Stephen Puth’s singing added to song really took things next level. His voice really adds a melancholic-pop feeling to the song and drives the emotion of ‘Like Gold’ home. Everything in the track came together perfectly. I can’t wait for the world to hear it.”
“I’m incredibly happy to be a part of ‘Like Gold’ with Loud Luxury and Frank Walker,” Stephen Puth says. “Collaborating with friends is always a great way to make music. We all brought our own styles of music to the table and ended up with a unique song.”
The Canadian DJ and producer rapidly became a mainstay in Spotify’s Dance and Pop playlists through collabs with the likes of R3HAB, official remixes for Kygo, Marshmello, Bastille, and Loud Luxury, and recent singles such as “Heartbreak Back” and “Only When the Rains,” both of which claimed a Top 10 spot on Canadian Top 40 radio. The latter, which was a collaboration with Astrid S, even earned him a nomination for ‘Dance Recording of the Year’ at the 2020 JUNO awards.
