Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Your Love (feat. House Gospel Choir)
Hell Beach, a division of Onelove Recordings
"This week's ENT comes from an Australian duo out of Melbourne responsible for one of the biggest dance tunes of the past six years. Their track 'Love Tonight' was originally released in 2017, it went viral during Covid across 2020/21 and is well on its way to a billion streams. They weren't one-hit wonders either, their follow-up 'Won't Forget You' is over 100m streams already, and now they are back with a new record with that same distinctive style. We love it, and it's a world exclusive"
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 36.27 here.
