BURNS Releases New Single “Angel”

(Los Angeles, CA)—Today, critically acclaimed, platinum-selling electronic producer BURNS aka Matthew James Burns delivers his new single “Angel”. The track hints at the ambition and scope of his upcoming debut album. Pairing steel drums and organ with a classic UK garage rhythm and delicate vibes, he utilizes an emotional vocal sample – intersecting his passions for underground English house music and blockbuster American pop. “Angel” is available now at all digital retail providers via RCA Records.

BURNS says about “Angel”; “‘Angel’ is a palate cleanser to prep for the rest of the music,” he explains. “The song really sets the stage. I wanted to hint there’s a much bigger picture on the horizon though.”

The Stafford, UK-born and -raised and Los Angeles-based artist has quietly become an influential force in pop. His production work encompasses the RIAA Gold-certified “Make Me…” [feat. G-Eazy] for Britney Spears, and 2018 releases for Hailee Steinfeld, Johnny Yukon, Liam Payne, French Montana, and many more. An in-demand remixer, he’s left his mark on official remixes for Lana Del Rey, Charli XCX, Iggy Azalea, Rihanna, and Drake. Simultaneously, he hosted explosive residencies in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, and Atlanta in addition to igniting stages at Lollapalooza, Made In America, Stereosonic Festival, Tomorrowland, and beyond. Influenced by everything from childhood heroes Daft Punk to A$AP Rocky and Lil Yachty, he veers between electronic expanse, hip-hop energy, and pop power with ease on his forthcoming first solo album and previous single “Far Gone” (feat. Johnny Yukon), which was his first release on RCA Records and quickly crossed the 1 million mark on Spotify. BURNS’ album is inspired by the culture of Los Angeles—his home since 2014. Capturing this spirit, his “LA concept record” represents the idiosyncrasies and intricacies of the city from the requisite romance and rawness to everything in between. As a result, it’s a “mood board” of the place he calls home. By naturally bringing a fresh vibe to pop, BURNS will resonate far beyond the City of Angels…
