- Artist: Mapei
- Track: Don't Wait
- Producer: Pretty Bird
- Album: None (Promo Single)
Listening to music is such hard work that it can be tempting to put off a new track till the next day, and enjoy it with fresh ears. As far as Mapei's current single, Don't Wait, though, I suggest you do as the title says and hit play straightaway. After all, tomorrow's never promised. Featured along with Dori Oskowitz's freshly-minted visuals, this heartfelt jam sees the Stockholm-based singer/songwriter serenading the man who's held her down through good times and bad. Backed by Pretty Bird's instrumental, a breezy arrangement featuring hand drums and Eastern strings (Is that a koto I hear?), she croons, “If it wasn't for you, I'd be on my own,” and promises to repay his loyalty in the years to come. Fans can find Don't Wait and five additional remixes of the cut (including Kingdom's previously-featured version) on Mapei's EP of the same name, out now on iTunes.
