HALIENE & Markus Schulz Evolve 2 Tracks Into 1 Masterpiece With “Butterfly x Metamorphosis”

The next single from HALIENE’s highly acclaimed debut album ‘HEAVENLY’ began its life as two separate tracks. It was no coincidence though that the unplugged natures of ‘Butterfly’ and floorward thinking, Markus Schulz co-produced ‘Metamorphosis’ neighbored each other on ‘HEAVENLY’.

HALIENE & Markus have a collaborative history dating back over the years. From her rendition of the classic ‘Ave Maria’, Markus’s 2019 tribute to his late mother, to Schulz’s remix of her original single ‘Walk Through Walls’, and further collaborations including ‘Tidal Wave’, this pair has an understanding of each other’s artistry that knows few, if any, bounds. Now tracks 10 and 11 from the mighty ‘HEAVENLY’ become one with ‘Butterfly x Metamorphosis’.

‘Talking about this uniquely innovative release, HALIENE said “I have a lifelong obsession with butterflies. To me, they speak of transformation; where once we crawled on the ground, one day we will fly above in brilliant color. On the HEAVENLY album I deal with pain and loss quite a lot and this song is the reminder that everything is temporary. For those we’ve lost, while you may have had to say goodbye for now, one day you will fly alongside them. While you may feel everything in your life has burned to the ground, she continues, just look at the butterfly … They go through a life-threatening process, and they come out the other side truly transformed, alive and able to fly.” On the parallels between this release and the album at large, HALIENE goes on to comment, “Butterfly / Metamorphosis is the story of this transformation, and the euphoric release of HEAVENLY. A celebration that we can be anything we dream of, if we are willing to become who our dreams call us to be.”

Markus underlines HALIENE’s ‘what doesn’t kill us, makes us stronger’ sentiment with an elevating production thrust that scales mountains in a bound. Taking ‘Butterfly’ from the candle-touched piano-side and placing it squarely in the centre of the peak-time dance floor, the metamorphosis of the two tracks completes.
