John Martin also wrote the huge Swedish House Mafia track, ‘Save The World’. John said: “As anyone with a passing interest in Big Songs will tell you, ’Save The World’ would, alongside “One”, become THE signature record for Swedish House Mafia.” To me, it’s always going to be an amazing record!” he smiles. ”It came together quickly and it was the reason for me to quit my daytime job – when it became a hit, I got the opportunity to start touring the world. It took me everywhere and together with the Swedes at Madison Square Garden, we did Ibiza and Ali Pali. At Madison Square Gardens, there was an audience of 17,000. I have a lot of great memories of that song.”
John Martin is now working on his debut album with co-writer and good friend Michel Zitron. John said of his debut: “It’ll be about songs. It definitely has electronic influences but it’s a song-based album and it’s written by Michel and me.” John agreed that they both create evergreen music, “what we do is we create the same landscape with a computer and an acoustic guitar.”
Make no mistake: this is music for the people, and the people have been waiting.
John Martin’s debut album will be released in 2013.
