As Markus Schulz gears up for the release of his next album We Are The Light, he’s dropped another song from the album called “Upon My Shoulders,” with help from Sebu Simonian of Los Angeles-based indie pop duo Capital Cities.
Between the festival and extended mixes, fans can get a fantastic burst of trance and progressive elements, all with some instantly catchy, sing-along lyrics.
“I always wanted to write a song about what I see and feel when I am playing at festivals all around the world in front of thousands of people,” Schulz told Billboard. “The chorus from ‘Upon My Shoulders,’ includes, ‘carrying you upon my shoulders, so you can let go.’ (It) expresses exactly how people feel when they come to festivals, united from all over the world. They come to festivals to live in the moment. They hold up flags representing their country. They hold each other on their shoulders, sing along, dance and are full of positive energy. ‘Upon My Shoulders’ is about them, no matter where they are from, or what genre or nationality. We live united in a world we create for ourselves, and leave all the worries behind.”
Uplifting, beautiful, irresistible. Listen to “Upon My Shoulders” below!
