This song has quite the history behind it. What was supposed to be a mega collaboration between three the most exciting artists in the music industry, ended up almost not even seeing the light day. Martin Garrix and David Guetta initially teamed up with Ellie Goulding, although she eventually had to be dropped from the project after her label refused to let this song see the light day before her forthcoming album was first released. Guetta and Garrix were not down with the plan to push this back once again and they got Romy Dya to re-record Ellie’s verse.
The results are still stunning. The track has heaps main stream appeal. It is exactly what the radio audiences in America currently look for in a release. There is no doubt that the single would have gone high on the charts with the inclusion Ellie. The song will most likely not see the same level success without the super star vocalist as it is nothing absolutely outstandingly original. Still at the end the day ‘So Far Away’ will be keeping main stage crowds happy until MMW next spring. Check it out below.
