PT Is 'Moving On' With Latest Pop Single
After storming the charts with his last single ‘R.O.D', Kiwi singer, songwriter and producer PT - formerly known as Pieter T - today drops his new track ‘Moving On' featuring Australian MC B Wise.
A smooth, soulful, break-up song, ‘Moving On' cleverly weaves in heartache with the excitement of new beginnings. PT brings his trademark effortlessly cool style to the track, which sits perfectly alongside the vocals of his Sydney sidekick, B Wise.
B Wise is a Nigerian-Australian hip hop artist who is making a name for himself on the Australian indie hip hop scene, with hits including ‘Feel Something' and ‘No Questions'
"It was originally a song I had written for somebody else. But as we got closer to finishing the album - it fit the scope of the project so well - we decided to keep it," says PT about ‘Moving On'.
"It definitely has summer vibes dripping through it, and I had written it as I envisaged a person finally ready to venture back out into the world after the pain of heartbreak... We've all been there, once we're past the hard stage of letting someone go in our hearts. I wanted to capture THAT specific moment, how it feels directly after.
"B Wise was an easy choice to feature on the track, once I heard his verse I knew straight away he gave it what the song needed, another level of depth and a new angle, he flows so seamlessly with the song so it was a perfect pairing," says PT.
‘Moving On' follows the release of PT's catchy dance track ‘R.O.D' which has seen airplay across George fm, Flava and Mai fm. ‘R.O.D' has been played more than 200,000 times on Spotify since its release just a month ago, and currently features on some of Australasia's biggest dance playlists including Monster Dance Hits and New Dance Beats.
Both ‘R.O.D' and ‘Moving On' signal the upcoming release of PT's full-length album GOLIATH, which will be released on May 4.
An album packed with killer tunes, GOLIATH showcases PT's skills across the board, from writing, to his distinctive vocals and producing chops.
With millions of plays on his songs across all platforms - including 1.4 million streams on Spotify on his 2013 smash hit ‘My Baby', as well as featuring on Arona Mane's current single 'Oscar', PT is undoubtedly one of Kiwi R'n'B's most successful exports.
He also has a stellar live track record, which has seen him play shows, tours and festivals across New Zealand, Australia, the Pacific and the United States - most recently opening for Jay Sean in Rarotonga earlier this week before heading to Australia for shows next week.
