I LOVE Ebay. I often find myself parusing the UK new release schedule, mark down the ones I’m interested in then make my way over to Ebay to see if there are any promo CDs available for purchase. This is how I learned that Katie Melua’s new single (due July 26th) “A Happy Place” was being remixed. Ever since Melua released “The Flood“, I’ve had my eyes peeled for any news on a second single. I knew that with the legendary William Orbit producing, Melua’s new album would be embraced by remixers and I’m happy to see that I was right. Co-penned by Melua and Guy Chambers, “A Happy Place” is the logical choice for a second single. It’s somewhat up-tempo and has a eerily beautiful chorus that suits Melua’s vocals. While I did enjoy the remixes that came out of “The Flood” (by Danny Kirsch and Michael Woods), “A Happy Place” has been mixed by Miami-based DJ Robbie Rivera, Loverush UK, Beatnoids, Product01 and Danny Kirsch. That’s quite a lineup! The House will be released stateside on August 3rd.
