Rising dance music powerhouse, Will Laroca returns with his third single, “Learn To Love.” An emotional and powerful new original, “Learn To Love” is available through his very own label, distributed by Virgin Music Sweden.
“The transition into house music came from a genuine interest in mixing different music styles and experimenting with different tempos and genres. Because of my hip-hop background with very meaningful and personal text and content, it came naturally to me to mix them and create my own take on EDM with deep lyrics. I’m a musician with the greatest respect for the art of music. The possibility to express emotions, dreams and thoughts through a song is what drives me. I basically fell in love with making melodies.” – Will Laroca
“Learn To Love” is a melancholic tune that ropes listeners in from the very beginning. Will Laroca’s tastemaking ability shines through his sense of artistry, which is what makes “Learn To Love” such an enrapturing song from the up-and-coming electronic artist. Inspired by Will’s own life and experiences, “Learn To Love” serves up oriental influences with a theme of lost love. The song is about a relationship that has run its course and the importance of allowing oneself to let go and open up for the possibility of finding a new love.
Following 13 successful years in the Swedish music industry, producer & artist William Fredriksson felt he was losing the passion for music. He had left his solo artist career behind him several years earlier, despite selling gold, and was starting to feel less and less motivated in his production. Will Laroca’s debut single “Holy Ones,” a stunning pop-driven EDM track with an inspirational and spiritual message, received high praise from critics & media outlets, fellow DJs, and music lovers alike. His sophomore single was an ode to his home, “Northern Lights.” And now he begins the new year with the emotional tune, “Learn To Love.”
