Ed Struijlaart ready for Olympics with new single ‘Gold’
Ed Struijlaart has been rather busy over the past few months working on new music. The Dutch singer-songwriter just launched the duet ‘Made of Stars’ with Lisa Lois in May and after the track got a positive response and was played on radio regularly, Struijlaart surprised his fans with the release of the next track. His brand new single is called ‘Gold’ and it is quite a new sound for him! Also, it comes just in time to get the Dutch athletes and public in the right mood for the Summer Olympics in Rio.
The tune starts out with some loud drums and interesting vocal effects. Struijlaart sounds raw in the verses, but the chorus is so catchy it breaks through the greasy production like a ray of sun. ‘Gold’ swings from start to finish and there is no way you will get the ‘ohohoh’ parts out of your head for the rest of your day. But why would you want to? It’s the perfectly themed anthem to accompany any Dutch success during the Olympics and if the tv channels are smart, they will pick this up and play it during their coverage of the games!
