World-class DJ legend Paul Oakenfold and Latin multi-Grammy award winner Luis Fonsi share a heartfelt video for their collaboration "The World Can Wait".
Dedicated to front line workers around the world, the video includes touching footage from hospitals, patients and healthcare workers helping to save those impacted by the virus. Additional fan submitted footage shows our world carrying on and masked for safety, mixed with footage from both artists’ shows, as the lyrics share a hopeful message throughout the video.
In addition to the video, Paul Oakenfold also presents four new remixes of “The World Can Wait” that span a variety of genres. Kilanova offers a cinematic remix, providing the track an anthemic soundscape. John Askew’s remix skews downtempo and allows for Luis Fonsi’s heartfelt lyrics to really shine, while the blklght remix kicks the track up a notch with a house tempo, ready for your home dancefloor. Lastly, Rafael Osmo x Spectral share a gorgeous trance remix of the emotional track.
Co-produced by DJWS (Lady Gaga, Pitbull), "The World Can Wait" is the first single from Paul Oakenfold’s upcoming studio album “Shine On” due later this year. Paul’s new album, his first since the critically acclaimed “A Lively Mind” (2006) and “Bunkka” (2000) will veer down a decidedly chilled out path, making it an incredibly listenable album and not one solely crafted for the dance floor.
