“‘I Hope That It Hurts’ is a special song to me, as the whole creative process was quite a journey. I fell in love with the first demo of the song, but it was originally too far away from my sound. So my biggest challenge was to turn this beautiful song into something I felt comfortable with without losing the DNA of the original writing and Norma Jean Martine’s voice, which captivated me when listening to the very first version of it. She really brought the song to the next level with her amazing performance. I’m really excited to share this one with the world.”— Nicky Romero

Thomas Jack – ‘No Landing’
“The Initial idea for ‘No Landing’ started with a grungy bassline made on an old vintage memorymoog. This baseline sparked my creative energy, and I started to build out the track with drums, and synths and continued expanding on that initial baseline. I arrived at a sound that seemed simple, but still sounded crisp and full-toned. The track was pure, so I didn’t feel it needed to be overcomplicated and oversaturated with wasteful production. To the ear, the elements of ‘No Landing’ are stripped back, which helps encapsulate the energy I wanted the song to exude. This single started with production, and I eased into the lyrics, letting the smooth gliding beat serve as the track’s core concept-never forcing a single word. Ultimately, this track has a sonic, unhurried sound that makes listeners feel like they’re ﬂoating, never worrying about landing back on the ground.”— Thomas Jack
