Mike Posner (feat. James Valentine & Jacob Scesney) – Amor Fati

If you don’t know Mike Posner from his brilliant debut single Cooler Than Me, you’ll surely know his worldwide hit I Took A Pill In Ibiza. The latter has 1,5 billion(!) streams to it’s name. However, he started his musical journey producing records for Big Sean. Later, het began producing and writing music for other artists including Nick Jonas, Pharrell Williams, and Wiz Khalifa. He also co-wrote Sugar by Maroon 5 and Justin Bieber’s Boyfriend.

Outside of music, Posner walked across the United States in 2019, clocking in more than 3.000 miles by foot alone. In June 2021, he climbed and reached the top of Mount Everest. Pretty impressive…

In 2018, Posner launched the Amor Fati Music Academy, a one-week scholarship program where young artists are mentored by world-class musicians, producers, and songwriters. Looks like he just released the theme song to this institute, for his new single is called Amor Fati. This is Latin for ‘love of faith’.

Amor Fati is a song with several, totally different segments. It opens with a Lenny Kravitz-like funky guitar riff over a big drum beat. Half a minute into the song whoever, the music strips back to an It’s Probably Me-kind of acoustic guitar with some flute in the background.

Most remarkable though, is the change halfway. Then, the tune transforms into a piece of soulful classic rock, complete with organ, horn and guitar solos. And just when you think it’s over, it ends for real with the melody of Jingle Bells. Sounds odd, doesn’t it? Well, it is. Yet, although not likely to become a huge hit, it’s a great song.
