PNAU Team Up With Budjerah For The Interstellar Single, ‘Stranger Love’

Australian powerhouse outfit PNAU return today with another stellar piece of house music, Stranger Love. The powerful new tune features the added touch of singer-songwriter, Budjerah. And it is an absolute winner of a track.

Stranger Love is a powerful and mega uplifting track, it sees the classic style of production from PNAU injected with a fresh new marriage of harmony with the vocals of Budjerah. It was recorded in Byron Bay earlier this year, but the vocal side of things were originally delivered in a acoustic ballad format.

“Meeting a young, spirited artist like Budjerah is beautiful and challenging. To encounter someone so young who already has a great handle on creativity and kindness confronts one’s own insecurities. He comes across as a natural; not something one sees a lot of in this business. Whilst we come from vastly different experiences, the supernatural power of music brought us together. We wrote from the perspective of psychedelic adventuring, and wistfully met somewhere in the middle. What came together was a true PNAU happening – an interstellar banger to be enjoyed by the trippy dreamer in all of us.” – Nick Littlemore, PNAU

“Joel Quartermain [from ARIA and APRA Award winning band Eskimo Joe] and I originally wrote Stranger Love as an acoustic ballad. The song was written based on the book The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and describes the relationship between the young boy (the little Prince) and a rose that lands on his home planet. The boy cares for her, he gives her his love and attention, but the rose doesn’t really appreciate the boy, so he leaves the planet. It was really fun to make the track with PNAU. I recorded the vocals with Nick Littlemore when we met in Byron in February of 2021. The performance element of a dance record is quite different to what I’m used to, but it was really fun. It sounds really great.” – Budjerah

Stranger Love adds another record to what is an absolute massive and impressive catalogue from PNAU and places the super talent of Budjerah on the top shelf. It’s available now, everywhere via our pals at etc etc.
