Friday, April 16th, Cristina Soto is set to release a new acoustic version of the EDM hit “Lifted’.
In 2020, singer-songwriter Cristina Soto revisited her breakout hit with electronic power-duo Tritonal, “Still With Me,” and her Illenium and Said The Sky collaboration, “Painted White,” with acoustic mixes. As Soto’s hit classic with Tritonal, “Lifted,” approaches its tenth birthday this year, she continues her hot streak by returning with a new acoustic rendering. The new indie mix of “Lifted” breathes a new soul into the beloved classic, while maintaining original elements that fans know and love.
“I was so excited to rework ‘Lifted’ as an acoustic mix because the progression, melodies, and lyrics are strong, and I felt that it could stand the test of time. The message of imperfect love is also still a relevant one.”-Cristina Soto
