Paces explains how the collaboration with Guy Sebastian came about:
'Life can be a crazy thing sometimes. I've been working with Guy on some tracks for his album. He's an actual musical genius, he definitely doesn't need my help, he could do everything himself but I think he just doesn't have the time. I learnt so much while working in his studio. Anyway I had this beautiful topline from Alexander Burnett and I'd written the instrumental for it, I just needed to find the right singer. I never in a million years thought I'd get Guy Sebastian on there but like I said, life can be crazy sometimes! And he absolutely crushed it!
We teamed up again to perform on Triple J's 'Like A Version', which has been a huge goal of mine. Guy brought this great energy to the version which really helped make it something unique. I'm so happy the planets aligned and we were able to work together on it."
Guy Sebastian has nothing but praise for Paces:
'I'd been a fan of Mikey's work for a while and reached out to him late last year to write together. We have kept in touch ever since and then Mikey sent -Desert' to me and I put my vocals on the track for his album. It's been awesome getting back in the studio with Mikey for Like A Version and I love what we came up with."
