The instrumental was released via BeatPort at the end of January and has been tearing up the dance scene ever since with spins from: Pete Tong (who said the track was so big it would need its own festival!), Zane Lowe and Annie Mac with a massive response from the public via text and email.
Alex said: “it is truly amazing for me to have someone whose music has had such an impact on what I do singing on “Open Your Eyes”. It was an honour to work with him. He sounds fantastic on the track and lyrically manages to capture the epic quality of the instrumental. So proud of our version; Ian brown I salute you!”
Best known as the former lead singer of The Stone Roses, this is a new direction for Ian Brown who said: “I’m made up to be on board”.
