salute Reveals Debut Album, Taps Rina Sawayama for Dreamy Single “saving flowers”

It's a big moment for salute, who is unfurling a brand-new chapter after announcing his debut album, TRUE MAGIC.

The surging UK producer also unveiled a shimmering new single, "saving flowers" with Rina Sawayama. Driven by their euphoric and irresistible dance production, the stunning track highlights their newfound commitment to songwriting and collaboration, a "pop approach" that they said helped propel TRUE MAGIC.

"I took a pop approach to the record," salute said in a statement. "I went in quite blindly just with some loops and ideas but there’s much more of a focus on songwriting and collaboration on this album. In dance music there always seems to be this focus on doing everything yourself but I wanted to get a team around me to develop the ideas I had. One thing I’m really proud of is how organic the work with the collaborators is. I’ve managed to get such a breadth of amazing people on the record."

The dazzling single comes alongside a mesmerizing music video that reinforces the album’s visual concepts and frenetic sonics, drawing inspiration from old Japanese car adverts.


salute has been consistently delivering emotive dancefloor anthems, wrapping up 2023 with a massive official remix for Disclosure, among other milestones. The Manchester-based trailblazer is now gearing up for TRUE MAGIC, his long-awaited debut album.

TRUE MAGIC is scheduled to release on July 12th via Ninja Tune and features an impressive slate of collaborators, from Disclosure and Sam Gellaitry to LEILAH and Empress Of.
