REGARD AND ELLA HENDERSON GET NO SLEEP IN NEW SINGLE
TORONTO, ON - March 17, 2023 - Today BRIT nominated DJ and producer, Regard, has shared a brand new dancefloor creeper, No Sleep, with chart topping, multi-platinum selling artist Ella Henderson. The track is out now via Ministry of Sound - listen here.
No Sleep is the perfect pairing of moody trance-inspired synths driven by Ella's soulful vocals, addressing moving past a lost love. The disco inflected chorus glistens, and is a testament to Regard’s penchant for crafting compelling dance tracks with infectious and nuanced melodies.
Speaking further about the track, Regard says “I started creating the beginnings of what would become No Sleep last summer. I was so consumed by making the track, I didn’t realise that by the end of my session, it was morning. I worked my way through the entire night on this song. Ironically, it went on to become ‘No Sleep’ thanks to Ella’s incredible performance on the track.”
Ella adds “I’m so excited to have collaborated with Regard on No Sleep. It feels so empowering to sing such a defiant lyric over such a feel good record! I believe many people will relate to this song & I think having more upbeat records with a strong & powerful message is something we all need right now! I’m excited for this one & I can’t wait to perform it live together at some point!!”
It was by accident that REGARD found his stage name. The word, “regardé,” came to the DJ during French class in high school. “To see” became the core behind Regard’s music. “When I perform,” he says, “I look at the people and how they feel the music.” For REGARD, his deep house mixes consist not only of sound, but also of sight. Performance is a reciprocal and intimate relationship between the DJ and the audience. Kosovan DJ and producer REGARD garnered global attention with his debut single, Ride It, which became an international hit, taking the internet and TikTok by storm and quickly followed it up with his second hit single and BRIT nominated Secrets featuring South London singer RAYE. He has gone on to achieve over 10X top 10 single chart placements globally. In the UK, Ride It has sold over 1 million records to date (6x Platinum), while Secrets was recently certified Gold. His 2x Platinum single, YOU, with Troye Sivan and Tate McRae achieved over 320 million streams, #2 at Main AC, #20 at Hot AC, #32 at Top 40 in Canada, #1 TikTok sound in UK and is the longest running #1on the US Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart in 2021, plus saw REGARD perform on Jimmy Fallon. REGARD has had four #1 US Dance Airplay hits, amassed 3.3 billion combined streams & 12 million worldwide sales.
