Kristine W is energizing dance floors once again with “Can’t Look Back”, the first single from her upcoming album. Produced by James Hurr, one of the masters of UK House, the song is a lush, soulful club groove, made even more powerful with its message inspired by the passing of her mother.
“Though she faced unbearable loss during her lifetime, my mother was a perpetual optimist,” Kristine reflects. “She never wallowed in pain from the past. She chose to forge ahead, holding tightly to hope, faithful in her belief that tomorrow would be a brighter day.”
Kristine W wrote “Can’t Look Back” with Mark Matson and another dance floor maverick, Tony Moran. Along with the James Hurr original, the “Can’t Look Back” remix package includes an impressive list of some of today’s top global producers. Beyond Chicago provides fresh radio edits and JSquad brings a progressive NYC house vibe to the song.
All are being distributed by Sony’s The Orchard, who are also unveiling three lyric videos to support the “Can’t Look Back” release. The first, featuring the James Hurr original, is available now.
According to Kristine, the element that sets “Can’t Look Back” apart from other tracks playing in clubs right now is that it is a real song with two verses, a chorus, a bridge and a B section. “You don’t hear many bridges in songs these days,” she explains. “It gives the feeling that the song is carrying listeners on a healing journey.”
Kristine W launched her singing career in the nineties. “Feel What You Want” was her first single to reach #1 on Billboard in 1994. Since then, she has had a steady flow of chart toppers. “Stars,” from her 2019 album, Issues Episode 1: Love and Lies was her 17th Billboard #1. She now ties Mariah Carey for the sixth-most No. 1s since the chart’s August 28, 1976, inception. Madonna leads the chart with 46.
