JUANES RELEASES A SPANISH LANGUAGE VERSION OF BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN’S “DANCING IN THE DARK”

Latin Rock superstar Juanes has globally released a Spanish language version of Bruce Springsteen’s Dancing In The Dark.”  Co-produced with multiple Grammy-winning producer Sebastian Krys (who has also helmed recent award-winning albums for Elvis Costello), this intimate and emotional rendition of Springsteen’s global hit finds Juanes pouring his soul into this slower, more vulnerable, and introspective interpretation that emphasizes the song’s lyrical sense of sorrow, emptiness and loss.

This presentation of “Dancing In The Dark” represents the second advance single and video from Juanes’ upcoming 10th album ‘ORIGEN’ – a lovingly curated collection that reimagines some of the most important songs and artists that shaped his own early musical vision – with this being the only English language song Juanes chose to translate and perform in Spanish for the project, reinforcing its overall influence on his artistry.

“When you listen to the original release of “Dancing In The Dark,” it seems very happy because of the rhythm, but when I started to read the lyrics carefully, I realized that it has a deep and vulnerable message. That’s why I decided to present this version more in a folk style, softer, slower, more intimate. This song also has a lot to do with my sister Mara because she had a boyfriend who introduced me to all this American music. In the 80s, when I was 13 or 14 years old, he traveled to the United States and took vinyl albums back to Medellín, and “Dancing in the dark,” became the first Springsteen song I ever heard – starting my love for Bruce’s music, lyrical messaging and his power as a performer that has been a strong influence on me ever since.” – Juanes

During his career, Juanes has been proud and honored to appear as a special opening performer preceding Bruce Springsteen’s 2012 SXSW keynote address, and also perform a bilingual rendition of “Hungry Heart” as the only Latin music artist appearing on the 2013 Grammy / MusiCares Person of the Year special tribute to Springsteen.

Juanes’ unveiling of this Spanish rendition of “Dancing In The Dark” follows closely behind the critically-praised recent release of an uplifting interpretation of Fito Paez’ iconic El Amor Después Del Amor” (‘The Love After Love’), both showing the Colombian star’s return to organic roots and rock fusions, complemented with razor-sharp instrumentation and production, that will be a theme throughout ‘ORIGEN’ – which Rolling Stone has already recommended as ONE OF THE MOST ANTICIPATED ALBUMS OF 2021.  This second-single release also once again arrives with a lighthearted step-back in time, TV performance video that is part of a wider visual element to come in conjunction with the album release.
