Gothenberg producer Donnie Castle is releasing otherworldly new single ‘Wish You Well’, taken from his upcoming second record Donnie II.

This follows 2018’s mixtape and trilogy of singles Oooh which received critical praise, a top 10 on Hype Machine, and inclusion in Spotify’s Fresh Finds and Flume’s Essentials playlist.

Having fallen into the escapism of underground clubs, self-destruction and an attachment to LSD following a break-up in 2015, Donnie has come out the other side of the wormhole and is in a more reflective space on his new record.

New single ‘Wish You Well’ focusses on Donnie’s relationship with his ex-girlfriend who worked as a stripper. Despite trying to be tolerant of her occupation, eventually it caused a rift between them.

He tells us “even though we cared for each other and hurt each other I still wish her the best in the future. There is a place where young beings get to hear that they are beautiful and charming, never have to be worried about being poor, always gets attention, but it rips there soul apart.”

‘Wish You Well’ is available everywhere on February 7th via Something Beautiful.
