AUSTRIA – This morning, Ö3-Wecker broadcasted the official radio debut of “Halo.” Tessa Kadletz directed the music video, which was published immediately after the radio debut. According to the musicians LUM!X and Pia Maria, the song is about having fun while also giving you power.
“I see “Halo” as a comeback song. A comeback of a whole generation sitting at home. Now we can finally go out and party again, visit clubs and have fun. The steady energy of “Halo” provides the perfect soundtrack for that. From songwriting to production, everything is adapted to a party song that still captures the spirit of the times and has its place as pop music on the radio. For me, the song is about strength. “Halo” gives me an incredible amount of strength. It’s one of those songs that makes you feel like you can do anything.”
The song was written by Norwegian songwriter and music producer Anders Nilsen, Swedish songwriter Rasmus Flyckt, American-Canadian songwriter Sophie Alexandra Tweed-Simmons, the daughter of rock legend Gene Simmons and actress Shannon Tweed, Eiffel 65 member Gabriele Ponte, and Luca “LUM!X” Michlmayr.
