Karl William Lund announces the second collaborative single with Scottish EDM duo Revision-X. Acting as a follow-up to 2019's 'Northern Lights', the track 'Let It All Be Forgiven' has more of a chill-out EDM vibe with pulsating synths and melodic strings. Following his experience with Eurovision, a sold-out crowd-funded album and touring the globe with Carnival Cruise Lines, Karl has continued collaborating with other producers & writers whilst exploring different sounds and vibes steering away from the stripped-down singer/songwriter sound he is accustomed to. Revision-X are comprised of Scottish producers Aidan Johnston & William MacKinnon. Johnston had been previously signed to Klubbed Up Records and Future World Records releasing various solo records whilst MacKinnon ran record label Revision Digital signing numerous artists. “William and I met & formed Revision-X back in 2011” explains Johnston. “We met when William approached me to remix one of his songs titled ‘Top Secret’. I have always loved EDM and I'm personally inspired by the likes of Darren Styles and Gammer. We wanted to work with Karl due to his amazing vocal range, voice, writing skills and experience.”
“Anything with a kick and catchy bassline does it for me” explains MacKinnon, “but I’ve always been into trance tracks which then went to dance such as; ATB, Solar Stone, Sash!, Chicane, Delerium. We were looking for new vocalists to start Revision-X as a commercial name and climb the ladder to being more successful. At this point Karl applied for the position. Myself and Aidan then went onto his profile, listened to his voice and instantly said “he’s the one”.
The first single released by Revision-X, a track called ‘Miracle’ is ironically the same name as Karl’s 2016 Eurovision track, which was his attempt to get to the grand final of the iconic song contest in Stockholm that year after appearing on the BBC’s Eurovision: You Decide. Since his Eurovision experience, Karl has written 3 tracks for Eurovision-alumni Martin Fitch due for release on his upcoming debut album and has collaborated with Vangelis Polydorou from The Voice. Karl then went onto become music manager for Carnival Cruise Lines touring the globe. Karl explains "the inspiration for 'Let It All Be Forgiven' came from the sudden and unexpected passing of my friend Angel. At first I was angry at how life suddenly pulled the rug from under her and this song is really about coming to terms with death, forgiveness and trying to be at peace with the situation. In light of the current pandemic we are facing with Covid-19, after I recorded the song, it started to take on a whole new meaning but the heart of it is really about my friendship with someone who was so in love with life that they just seemed ageless". 'Let It All Be Forgiven' is available now on all major platforms including iTunes.
