Claptone & Seal – Just A Ghost
Opening with gorgeous piano melodies below the deep soulful voice of famed singer/songwriter Seal, “Just A Ghost” is an emotive dance release with harmonic chord progressions and pop-infused elements. Captivating with velvety vocals and an infectious hook, the track soars with heartwrenching lyrics that radiate a message of holding onto the one you love. This track marks Seal’s first original material in six years.
“The deep sensuality in Seal’s voice has always kept me under its spell, and of course the mystique around his persona. No doubt the stars aligned when Seal and I were working on ‘Just A Ghost.’… By introducing him to the deep, emotive and powerful sound of Claptone my aim was to lead him back to his very own roots, to an electronic club infused but soulful sound. And I needed to do that without sacrificing the strong musical identity he built for himself over the past decades.”
“Just A Ghost” marks Claptone’s latest single for his third album, Closer, which is co-produced by Stuart Price. It sits alongside previous album singles, “Zero,” “My Night” feat. APRE and “Wake Up” feat James Vincent McMorrow which were all unveiled earlier this year.
