Morgan Page To Release Studio Album 'In The Air' (April 3); Signs On For 2012 Residency At Wynn Las Vegas
On April 3, Grammy-nominated Producer/DJ Morgan Page releases his third full-length album, In The Air - a brilliant balance between kinetic house music and blissful, radio-ready pop. To sample tidbits from the album, click the above soundcloud.
For the album, Page assembled an all-star cast of guests to appear on the original tracks, including Tegan And Sara on "Body Work" and "Video," Jonathan Mendelsohn and Andy Caldwell on "Where Did You Go," Greg Laswell on "Addicted,” and a powerhouse combination of BT, Sultan + Ned Shepard and Angela McCluskey on title track and lead single, "In the Air."
The above-mentioned mega-collaboration led to a #1 hit on Billboard’s Hot Dance Airplay chart and #11 on BPM’s ‘Top 51 of 2011.’ Adding to a long history of Top 10 successes -- "Longest Road," "Call My Name,” “Fight For You” and “Strange Condition” – “In The Air” is Page’s first #1 single. When asked by Billboard Magazine about his career achievement, Page humbly answers, “It just got an immediate genuine response from people that blew me away.” “In The Air” remained in the Top 10 for an incredible 25 weeks! In North America, early radio placement for follow-up single, “Body Work,” primes the track to exceed “In The Air;” with early adds at more stations across the US and already Top 20 at pop stations in Canada.
Morgan Page remains a powerful presence in the electronic music scene. He made a name for himself with 2005's collection of bootleg remixes, Cease And Desist. Getting the blogosphere chattering, he began carving out a niche. In 2008, he dropped his formal debut Elevate, which spawned one of his biggest hits to date "The Longest Road" featuring songstress, Lissie. The Deadmau5 remix of the track was nominated for a Grammy (Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical) in 2009. His sophomore effort, 2010's Believe, saw him continue to garner more critical and fan acclaim. The following year, Page received his second Grammy nomination for his remix of Nadia Ali’s “Fantasy” (Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical).
In The Air sees Page evolve into an inspirational powerhouse in his own right. He builds his own space in the middle of the pop and electro worlds sonically. Page affirms, "This record exists between the club and pop worlds with a little bit of indie thrown in there as well. I wanted to try some new flavors and attitudes, while keeping my sound intact. At the end of the day, it's really about the song."
This year, Page comes off an incredibly successful In The Air tour (20+ sold out dates!) that featured a flood of special guests from the album – Tegan And Sara, Sultan + Ned Shepard, Andy Caldwell, Jonathan Mendelsohn, Angela McCluskey and American Idol’s Blake Lewis. Currently set to perform at this year’s Coachella Valley Arts And Music Festival, Page has also signed on for a yearlong residency at Wynn Las Vegas - XS, Tryst, Surrender and Encore Beach Club. With nearly 40 million visitors annually, Las Vegas is a prime venue for entertainment. More details to follow.
