“I’ve been working on various versions of “Distraction” for over a year now. It’s essentially based around my love for some of the early 2000’s trance sounds trying to put a modern almost progressive spin to it. And with Jem Cooke and myself having been trying to work on a track together for some time, I knew that she would smash it and contribute to the vibe in such a cool way. After some back and forth, we finished up the vocals and ‘Distraction’ was pieced together to what it is now. A banger!” – Nu Aspect

“The lyrics to “Distraction” are definitely open to interpretation – they were a stream of consciousness one day when I was feeling a bit restless like I needed something ​ I didn’t have but I couldn’t quite put my finger on. I’ve loved Sam’s (Nu Aspect’s) production for ages and was super keen to work something out with him, so being able to collaborate with him and have another release with both Selected. and Tomorrowland Music on this one is a dream.” – Jem Cooke
