The Don has delivered once again.
The king of sensual disco pop Donny Benét is back at it, today revealing a new single and film clip.
Following on from last year’s Second Dinner, ‘Girl of My Dreams’ does not disappoint. The track sees a lovestruck Don pouring his heart out, though it’s not without the singer’s classic tounge-in-cheek touch.
“Some songs just write themselves – when it happens you’re a passenger and a vessel to the whole process,” said Benét of the track. “The whistled melody was one of the first components to come in the writing process – I envisioned being on Italian TV in the 80’s dressed in a black velvet tuxedo, hands behind my back while whistling away and melting hearts.”
In addition to dropping the single, which Benét says “touches on an overall theme of the upcoming album”, the Sydney-sider has also revealed a new run of international shows to follow his stint in the US and Canada next month. The freshly announced tour will take Benét through the UK and Europe in May.
