They became fans of each other’s work, dispatching music files between Sydney and Sweden. In amongst those files was the origins of Fire Keeps Burning.
Dahlbäck: “Fire Keeps Burning was a track we started on years ago, but life happens and it wasn’t until recently I found the acapella and thought it would make a banger with today’s sound. I started working on this housey, almost old-schooley vibe, and Connie’s vocals just fitted perfectly. After sending files back and forth, we got a version I’m so proud of.”
McDonald concurs: “After deciding to revisit this decade-old vocal, it’s amazing how quickly it came together. We’ve played it live a few times and the crowd’s response has been epic – we love it!”
