Singer joins coaching panel of The Voice UK
GRAMMY Award-winning singer, songwriter, and producer Meghan Trainor shares her brand new single entitled “Wave” with Mike Sabath. The track heralds the impending arrival of her anxiously awaited third full-length album, Treat Myself, coming soon.
“This song has been in the works for three years, and I’m so excited to finally release it!” Trainor says of the song. “I’ve never worked harder on a song. Mike Sabath’s production and verse took it to a whole new level. I know my fans have been waiting a long time for this one, and they deserve the best. I’m happy they stuck with me. I hope they love it!”
For “Wave,” she joined forces with rising New York singer, songwriter, and producer Mike Sabath [Lizzo, J Balvin, Selena Gomez, Pharrell] who recently signed with Warner Records. It begins with an intimate solo vocal from Trainor, rising towards a sweeping refrain — “Just take me like a wave” — uplifted by a full choir. Soon, the tide ebbs and flows between danceable bass and propulsive percussion before Sabath’s cameo shines.
“Meghan and I got really close while working on her new album this year,” shares Sabath. “We were in the studio one night working on ‘Wave’ and she asked if I would please do a verse on it. I felt super inspired by her voice and the energy of the people in the studio and was able to one take the verse and then we just filled in the lyric.”
“Wave” is set to impact radio on October 7th, and the music video will premiere the same day.
Recently, Trainor contributed “Genetics” to the Netflix hit Tall Girl. Additionally, she covered the Friends theme song, “I’ll Be There For You,” originally by The Rembrandts for the 25th anniversary of the iconic series. Trainor has joined the superstar coaching panel of ITV’s The Voice UK. She’ll be taking up a big red chair alongside Sir Tom Jones, will.i.am and Olly Murs.
