Ilan Bluestone has recently announced a new release titled, “Paid For Love” featuring Gid Sedgwick, which is scheduled to be made available on November 13 via Anjunabeats and is available for pre-order here.
“Paid For Love” finds Bluestone working for the second time with singer/songwriter Gid Sedgwick who worked with him and Maor Levi on “Can You” last year. The track was handpicked by Above & Beyond for their Group Therapy 400 live stream back in September. Vibrant and anthemic, “Paid For Love” is a Bluestone classic.
“‘Paid For Love’ is the first track I’ve written where I’ve had a hand in writing the lyrics. The song is about a personal experience I had in a relationship, and I feel like these lyrics speak to people who may have gone through similar experiences. I’ve felt such a strong connection with fans at my shows when they’ve been singing the words back to me. I wanted a vocal in the style of Depeche Mode, and Gid delivered!“Ian Bluestone
“Paid For Love was the first song Ilan and I worked on together, and actually my first attempt at trance (Tronce) altogether. I’ve not looked back since! Prior to working on the track, Ilan had a clear direction of where he wanted the sound to go and the rest happened very naturally. After only a few tweaks and changes, it wasn’t long until Paid For Love was complete and ready for the big stage!”Gid Sedgwick
