2CELLOS Cover Hit Single Despacito In New Music Video

Sony Music Masterworks - 07/20/2017

NEW YORK, July 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- 2CELLOS, music's most electric and dynamic instrumental duo, released a new cover video for "Despacito", this summer's hottest single remixed by Justin Beiber, Daddy Yankee and Luis Fonsi. The video was filmed on July 8th in Zagreb, Croatia at a local bar just around the corner from the studio. The audio track is also available now via all download / streaming services.

"We had a bit of fun with our version of Despacito. We were working in the studio in Zagreb and spontaneously came up with this arrangement, so we recorded it and filmed it in a local bar and in the streets around the studio. It's a great tune and we wanted to share our enjoyment of the music and summer!" said Luka and Stjepan.

2CELLOS begin their The Score Summer Tour in mid-July and will be performing at iconic venues like The Greek in LA and Red Rocks in Colorado. In September they will perform for the first time at New York's Radio City Music Hall.

The Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser have created three high-energy albums for Sony Music Masterworks since 2011. Their 2017 release, Score finds them exploring a more traditional sound-world. Joining them here – to provide the ideal aural backdrop to their virtuosity – is the London Symphony Orchestra, with conductor/arranger Robin Smith at the helm. Sulic and Hauser also co-produced Score with Nick Patrick (Jackie Evancho, Il Divo, Placido Domingo).

2CELLOS have forged a signature style that breaks down the boundaries between genres of music, from classical and film music to pop and rock. As impressive when playing Bach and Vivaldi as they are when rocking out, Sulic and Hauser know no limits when it comes to performing live. They have sold out shows around the globe and also performed with Sir Elton John as part of his band, as well as opening his shows to rapturous acclaim.

2CELLOS were the first instrumentalists to be featured on Glee. They have also appeared multiple times on The Today Show and The Ellen DeGeneres Show in addition to The Tonight Show, The Bachelor Live Wedding Special among others. Their self-titled debut album, IN2ITION and Celloverse are available on Portrait / Sony Music Masterworks.
