Hayden James, Bob Moses unite on Future Classic with ‘Do You Want Me’


In September of 2019, Hayden James lent a hand on Bob Moses’ Battle Lines [Remixed] LP by reworking “Back Down.” Nearly four years later, Hayden James has recruited Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance of Bob Moses to secure an airtight original record in the books, “Do You Want Me.”

Now streaming via Nathan McLay’s 2004-founded Australian record label Future Classic the joint effort effectively captures the summertime feel while delivering a poignant reflection of the current state of dance music. Featuring Tom Howie’s unmistakable vocals amidst Hayden James and Bob Moses’ combined production abilities, “Do You Want Me” surely won’t fly under the radar.

Marking James’ first release since his take on ODESZA‘s “The Last Goodbye,” “Do You Want Me” also signifies Bob Moses’ first original offering since The Silence In Between. And James spoke on what he described as a pairing for the ages, explaining,

“Tom, Jimmy and I got together just a handful of times to write ‘Do You Want Me. We instantly had a vibe together and just had fun in the studio. The song feels like a great representation of both of us. It’s definitely a dream collab for me.”
