A changing mental focus
’East Coast’ is an upbeat pop anecdote by the Danish newcomer in duet with Swedish songstress, MIMI. The charming Scandipop-collab is out now.
With the most streamed Danish debut single ever, Daniel Schulz has – quite obviously – been one of the most promising new artists to come out of Denmark. Back in 2017, ‘Turn Back Time’ reached Spotify-listeners all over the World clocking up more than 70 million streams, while Daniel went on to writing songs with amazing producers, known for making hit records with massive pop stars like Post Malone, Zara Larsson, Wiz Khalifa and Nicki Minaj… to name a few.
But for the last couple of years, the now 23-year old singer has changed his mental focus moving from the hills of LA and big city-life in London to a new base in the Danish capital of Copenhagen. Daniel Schulz is not in it for a quick hit. He’s here for the long run – here to make a difference.
“My bucket list is long! And even though the last five years has been a crazy, wild and fun ride, it feels like I’ve just started checking off. You learn a couple of things getting in to songwriting at an early age – accepting that it’s okay to revisit your insecurities and flaws from time to time – and these days I feel blessed and lucky to work with people who truly knows me and my story. My life and music feel more real than ever,” Daniel says.
Daniel Schulz is known for his Scandinavian pop, a blend of uplifting beats and notes of melancholia, with twists of modern hip hop and R&B. ‘East Coast’ is the perfect example of his genuine way to express his own life in his songs. It’s about changes and how life isn’t always what you expect it to be. It’s a declaration of love and gratitude – a song of hope.
To tell the story of ‘East Coast’, the Danish hitmaker went east to team up with MIMI – a future Swedish pop star to be. And while their sparkling collaboration is most definitely gonna hit pop lovers from north and south, west to east, Daniel Schulz is writing more new songs for the year to come.
