World-renowned Italian producer and DJ BENNY BENASSI is releasing his next highly anticipated single “Dance The Pain Away” featuring multi Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter John Legend June 25 via Ultra Music. Co-produced with his production partner and cousin Alle Benassi, “Dance The Pain Away” is a bona fide summer anthem that will ignite the crowds this festival season. The duo unveiled “Dance The Pain Away” to the world at this year’s Coachella (Saturday, April 13) when Legend made a special surprise appearance during BENNY’s stellar performance at the Sahara Tent. Featured by CNN, the Los Angeles Times, Fuse and USA Today, who highlighted the performance as one of Saturday’s best surprises, the set was one of the most memorable moments at Coachella 2013. Listen to a snippet of “Dance The Pain Away” here: To accompany the single, BENNY is also unleashing a special remix version from fellow Italian house music group Daddy's Groove on June 25 as a Beatport exclusive followed by a full remix package for “Dance The Pain Away” out July 9 on Ultra Music. The remix package features re-worked versions of the track from some of the world’s top producers in electronic music today, including Alex Guadino and Jason Rooney, the aforementioned Daddy’s Groove, Dyro, Jimmy Carris and Tom Swoon. Following the track’s release, BENNY has partnered with RollingStone.com for the official music video premiere for “Dance The Pain Away” launching June 27. Directed by Cameron Duddy, the video brings the song to life as it takes fans on a scenic drive along the famed Pacific Coastal Highway in Los Angeles with BENNY BENASSI behind the wheel of a classic Porsche 550 Spyder. Featuring John Legend and BENNY BENASSI, the video grips the gut of the track and captures the essence of searching for escape.
