David Guetta & Cedric Gervais bring the summer to a close with “Would I Lie To You,” a huge house anthem alongside trusted vocal collaborator Chris Willis. A gorgeous rework of Charles & Eddie’s soulful pop classic, Guetta and Gervais move things in style for the modern dance floor.
Kicking off with funky guitar disco licks and infectious beats, the track soon gets under your skin with Willis’ smooth vocals sitting atop groovy bass, and a big build-up driving us home towards the energetic piano house vibes after the drop. The Club Mix takes the track in a markedly harder direction, with euphoric synth refrains and bruising percussion, while the Festival Mix channels trance energy and larger-than-life theatrics, with a gigantic lead riff pulsing away incessantly over pounding beats.
Grammy Award-winner Cedric Gervais is made for a perfect collaborator for David Guetta. The Miami-based DJ/producer holds a career that spans well over fifteen years, marked by hit after hit. From his Grammy-winning remix of Lana Del Rey’s “Summertime Sadness” to reaching the Billboard, UK, and ARIA Top 10 charts on multiple occasions, Gervais amasses a staggering 2.6 million plays across online streaming platforms each month and continues to reel in crowds on a global scale. Following the launch of his label Delecta, Gervais recently kicked off the first phase of The Delecta Sessions Tour, a global run of tour dates that will take him across North America, South America, Europe and more. Noted dates include Ushuaia in Ibiza and Echostage DC alongside Nervo, as well as Space and LIV in Miami, Avalon in Los Angeles, Marquee in Vegas and LAVO in New York, with dates still to be announced.
David Guetta founded Jack Back Records in 2012 as an outlet for his own club tracks, and the label has taken a quality-not-quantity approach with just eleven carefully chosen releases over the last four-and-a-half years. With previous outings including huge Guetta collaborations like “BAD,” “Shot Me Down,” “Metropolis” and “Clap Your Hands,” it’s a label with serious pedigree. Guetta’s residencies at XS on Sept 23 and Sept 30 and Encore Beach Club on Sept 24 and Oct 1 in Las Vegas continue over the next few weeks, while his legendary F**k Me I’m Famous party also returns to Pacha Ibiza on Oct 6.
