The track pays homage to the UK’s club culture with a feel-good track introduced by a classic fade-in and celebratory lyrics. salute is also announcing the first leg of their world tour beginning in Brussels on February 23rd. The tour features stops through Manchester, Paris, Tokyo, and Barcelona as well as festival performances at Four Tet & Friends Festival in NY, Flash Festival in Tuscany and FLY festival in Edinburgh.

The artist shares about the song, “I think ‘system’ best describes where my head is at in terms of the sound I’m trying to get across. I’ve been obsessively re-diving into old French records and they’ve had a massive influence on how I produce my music – this one was particularly fun to make. I’m so in love with my pal Empress Of’s vocals on this tune, I’ve wanted to work with her for a number of years now and I’m so pleased we could make this work. As with most of the tunes I’ll be releasing this year, ‘system’ is a collaborative effort: had help from Karma Kid, Andy Smith and Baz Kaye (Bondax) on this one. They came through with the ingredients to tie ‘system’ together beautifully.”

salute has has performed four sets at Glastonbury, they’ve also performed across Europe – including Parklife, Love Saves the Day, Gottwood (on the same stage as Sammy Virji), Montreux Jazz Festival, and Warehouse Project (b2b Yung Singh) – and made their debut in Asia to an incredible reception, selling out shows in Seoul, Shanghai and Tokyo. salute also recently teamed up with Barry Can’t Swim for an impromptu pop-up show at Section 8 in Melbourne that raised money for Palestine Children’s Relief.
