Today we’re excited to be sharing a collaboration from TSIS favorites Alison Wonderland and Naderi for a new cover version of Ed Sheeran’s hit track “Shape Of U”. We’re happy we got our hands on this new release that came from the two artist friends hanging out and getting creative as Naderi says he “decided to have a bit of fun with my homie Alison Wonderland while she was in Sydney for a couple of days !”
"This is one of my favorite tracks and I really wanted to remix it, but Ed Sheeran didn't reply to my twitter when I asked to remix it! So then Naderi and I decided to cover it when I was in Australia with him ¯_(ツ)_/¯ It was really fun to recreate and I hope it makes you as happy as it does me." – Alison Wonderland
Alison Wonderland and Naderi recreated the massive original song from the ground up to make it entirely their own and the final result is sounding great. They utilize the original’s melody in the intro while Alison lends her dreamy vocals complete with new rumbling synths and tasteful vocal distortions. The track builds with big drums leading to a huge, cinematic future bass-styled drop followed by a second drop of slashing synths and bright melodies. Alison previously teased the collab live last month (below) and in her new radio sho on Sirius XM that launched on Monday. Enjoy!
