Renowned DJ David Guetta has once again delved into his interpolation series, this time collaborating with the talented Kim Petras on their latest track, “When We Were Young (The Logical Song).” In this musical endeavor, Guetta skillfully samples Supertramp’s 1979 hit, infusing it with a modern electronic dance beat.
Petras takes center stage, lending her pop vocals to the reimagined classic. The lyrics delve into the universal theme of yearning for a return to a better time in life, evoking emotional nostalgia.
In a revealing interview with The New Yorker, the duo shared insights into their creative process, citing inspiration from iconic groups like ABBA. The result is a fresh take on a timeless piece, seamlessly blending the essence of the past with contemporary musical elements.
Accompanying the release is a visually captivating music video directed by Hannah Lux Davis. The video mirrors the whimsical and free-spirited elements of the song, featuring Petras walking on water while surrounded by household objects, reminiscent of scenes from Alice In Wonderland. The visual journey takes unexpected turns, with Petras spinning on playground equipment against a vibrant backdrop.
