Emma Hewitt Teams Up With Pretty Pink For “Lay Me Down”



Over the course of the last year, singles from Emma Hewitt’s sublime Ghost Of The Light album has seen her original versions coupled side-by-side with clubbier-minded collaborators, adding an extra layer of depth and dimension to the body of work.

Most recently, dancefloor fans from all corners have been treated to the likes of her x Solarstone link-up, “Children” and “Fallen” – her first x Roman Messer collaboration. On her latest collaboration with the German DJ-producer Pretty Pink (Anne Karolczak) on “Lay Me Down” she’s taken that process one step further still.

If you don’t recognize “Lay Me Down” from Ghost of The Light, that is because the track actually whispered its way to life as “The River” – an introspective and nostalgia-drenched ode to a former love from a different life, perfectly preserved in memory.

When Emma began work with Pretty Pinkon the release, neither realized quite how far they’d go in revolutionizing it. To turn it into a set-weapon, Pretty Pink has shifted the song’s focus exclusively to its “lay me down” hook and heartstring-tugging “I can’t hear you now” refrain. To that she applied an equally infectious backing of cyber FX, technotic rhythms, rippling sub-riffs and 303-strafted mainline. “lay me down” is out now on all streaming platforms.
