Martin Garrix is eager to collaborate with Lana Del Rey, following his successful track with Ed Sheeran, because "her voice is amazing"
Martin Garrix wants to collaborate with Lana Del Rey.
The 'Animals' hitmaker has recently worked with Ed Sheeran on his new track 'Rewind, Repeat It' but named the 29-year-old musician as his dream vocalist to produce for.
When asked if he thinks the pair will ever get to record together though, the 19-year-old producer admitted he was unsure, telling BANG Showbiz: "I hope so, but I'm not sure if she's down to do an electronic record. Her voice is amazing, and really one of the voices I would really like to work with."
However, the teenager said he still loved working with BRIT Award winner Ed, because people didn't expect for the pair to work together due to their different styles.
Speaking at the Capital Summertime Ball with Vodafone, he said: "We met in Los Angeles and just hanged out and partied together, and he came to Amsterdam to party. Then I sent him, like, a chord progression, then he sent me a voice note back of him jamming on his guitar. Before I knew it we were in the studio finishing the song together.
"It was super cool to work with him because he comes from such a different genre. It was cool to find, like, a point in the middle to combine both of our sounds, so people could still know that it's a collab. It's not a Martin Garrix record with Ed Sheeran vocals on it or an Ed Sheeran song - you can hear both of our influences."
