Asato’s version replaces the tropical house instrumentation with some stripped-back, intimately-recorded acoustic guitars, backing Gomez’s vocals in both Spanish and English. Take a listen below.
The full remix EP also features versions of the track remixed by Jack Chirack and Tiësto. You can hear it here.
It’s the latest song reworking Asato has appeared on: last month, he also teamed with singer-songwriter Annalé on her song Goodbye, a reimagining of her first Korean-language single of the same name. Asato described the track in a statement as a “refreshment to the soul.”
“The happiness found through the melodic path makes a perfect marriage with the vocal harmonies,” he added. “Everything fits so well! Being part of this song is a big privilege to me – especially for having the opportunity of collaborating with such talented artists. I am beyond proud of this final result.”
Earlier this year, Asato announced an indefinite hiatus from social media, specifically Instagram. The news took his over one million followers by surprise as he had used the platform extensively to showcase his playing and build a following.
In a statement on the platform, he wrote: “I am [concluding] my relationship with social media in general. Instagram is a place where I will be forever thankful in terms of my career (I’ve met my biggest heroes and had the coolest opportunities through IG) – but I’m sincerely overwhelmed.”
“Instagram helped musicians to get better at business, at making flawless-performance videos (after uncountable takes),” he continued. “I got lost inside the boxes of the 15s-60s videos.”
“I have a big feeling that we are losing the essence of [musical] interaction, establishing patterns based on the same 4 bars chord progressions to start the vibe. Anyways. Sorry if this offends any community related to music. It’s time for a break. I’ll be back soon, hopefully.”
