Multiple Grammy Award winning DJ/producer David Guetta has released his long awaited new studio album titled 7. With a total of 27 tracks, the double album represents the many different sides of his musical journey.
Guetta has taken over two years to write and produce the album in Los Angeles, London and Ibiza. Featuring huge electronic pop songs, the album also has a second disc of underground dance tracks, recorded under Guetta’s Jack Back alias.
7 includes some of his recent monster hits; 2U with Justin Bieber, Flames with Sia, Like I Do with Martin Garrix and Brooks, Don’t Leave Me Alone with Anne-Marie and Goodbye with Jason Derulo, Nicki Minaj and Willy William.
Guetta said: “The album is called 7 because it’s my seventh album which is crazy when I think about it, because that’s a lot of music. 7 is a magical number and represents a full cycle to me. When you’re just starting out as an artist you go step by step and it’s only positive energy; passion, love, challenges. And then the second phase if you’re successful is when you’re at the top and the energy changes to fear, because when you’re at the top you can not go up any more.
And now I feel like I’ve reached a third phase where I just want to put a lot of music out that I love. This is why 7 is a perfect name to me, because I feel like I’m going back to my original energy which can be heard in this album.”
