Filled with lush piano chords, synth stabs, the undeniable disco flavour, and all topped off with the unforgettable hook; “I can’t wait to have you in my arms again” – so electrifying that it feels instantly familiar.
Discussing the new single and how it came together, Tino elaborates, “for ‘In My Arms’ I went back to the ‘Body Funk’ and ‘Dished’ blueprint and found two samples that worked together to make the record. The piano line is from Al Stewart’s 1970’s soft rock classic ‘Year Of The Cat’, and the vocal is from Inner Life’s ‘I Like It Like That’ – a gem on the legendary disco label Salsoul Record, sung by Jocelyn Brown”.
