And, with Not One Goodbye, he’s capped the lot with a seasonal wave-off to a summer unlike any other. The song once again finds him in the vocal company of Sue McLaren, and as always, the sparks again fly. Sue initially floated the idea of collaborating on the track and with one listen of the demo, Giuseppe signed on.
Not One Goodbye packs the type of affecting power only a handful of tracks can deliver. Through her words, Sue lays bare the trials of love with a distinctly uncertain future, while her beautiful tones bely the shift from wishful thinking to tougher truths.
Putting music behind its message, Giuseppe offsets Sue’s lyrical lamentation with a production that breaks through the clouds to offer it an optimistic charge. Debuted halfway through his In Search Of Sunrise 16 disc in August, the track’s since received big air, with everyone from Armin down spinning its praises.
Music with authenticity seared foundation deep, Not One Goodbye’s words linger for hours, while its meaning will be with you for days.
