The Danish duo, both fans of the King of Pop, wrote a song named after his ranch to pay tribute to their idol.
Electronic soul act Quadron delivers a preview of their forthcoming album "Avalanche" and they choose to highlight their Michael Jackson tribute track entitled "Neverland". The duo of vocalist Coco Maja Hastrup Karshoj and musician/producer Robin Hannibal, both fans of the late King of Pop, honors their idol by way of a song named after the famed ranch that served as MJ's home from the years 1988 to 2005.
"[Singer Coco O. and I] are both huge fans of Michael Jackson and we wanted to write a song about that, but from a different angle," multi-instrumentalist Hannibal revealed. "We created a third-person story about when people become impersonators to pay tribute to artists that are their idols because they are so obsessed with them."
Coco O.'s vocals and Hannibal's horns and strings make for a vintage track that sounds like a throwback to the mid/late '70s. It ends with the lyrics, "We'll meet in Neverland," a reference to Jackson's getaway ranch that represents the dream world that the late entertainer had surrounded himself with to shield from the prying eyes of the media and the general public.
Apart from their Quadron joint project, Coco O. and Hannibal are also busy with their own separate endeavors. Coco O. contributed to the soundtrack of "The Great Gatsby", by way of the single "Where the Wind Blows" while Hannibal, along with Canadian musician Michael Milosh, recently released their debut album "Woman".
