For "Higher Than The Sun", Roger Shah and Brian Laruso composed an ingenious backing track, laying down a highly emotive foundation for JES' own vocal arrangements. As an infectious, electro inspired endeavour, the producers keep up the energizing pace of the song, while keeping a strong focus on the strength of the lyrics. With this seductive blend of JES' heartfelt singing, high energy synth and string components, "Higher Than The Sun" is nothing short of an instant chart topper.
