This song is great and this is what is said about it

ChristianxAlabaster  take  claim  to  Secret  Track  ‘Smile’  Earlier  this  month,  10,000  Recordings  released  a  secret  track  simply  titled  “Smile”.  After  garnering  attention  of  both  The  XXX  and  over  15,000  listeners  in  under  a  month,  10,000  recordings  was  pleased  to  allow  these  two  aspiring  melody  makers  to  finally  step  out  from  the  shadows  and  take  claim  to  a  track  so  rich  with  warm  tones,  bass  heavy  melodies  and  breathy  vocals  that  no  less  than  a  rhythm  maker  from  Simian  Mobile  Disco  had  to  mix  and  produce  it!  This  collaboration  between  Christian  Patey  and  Alabaster  has  been  no  easy  task  however,  as  the  pair  live  nearly  16  thousand  kilometers  apart  (East  London  to  Brisbane).  But  the  chance  to  work  with  Smile  clothing  and  help  children  in  need  led  these  two  to  record  in  Studios,  countryside  barns,  shipping  containers  and  airport  lounges  to  bring  smiles  to  kids  and  listeners  alike.    Smile  Clothing  started  in  2010  and  gave  orphanages  300  shirts  for  children  in  that  year  alone.  Since  then,  with  every  clothing  purchase  on  their  store  they  give  a  shirt  to  someone  less  fortunate.  This  isn’t  just  a  clothing  store  jingle  however  as  these  two  have  written  a  song  worthy  of  Patey’s  new  stylistic  direction.  A  seemingly  natural  progression  from  previous  singles,  ‘We  Are’  and  ‘Evil  Can  Wait’,  Smile  shows  off  his  fanciful  lower  register  that  ensnares  Alabaster’s  airy  backdrop  of  2am  East  London  electro.  If  their  talents  weren’t  enough,  good  friends  Simian  Mobile  Disco  also  lent  their  talents  to  help  mix  and  produce  the  track!
