Simon Le Bon and Nick Wood - Closer to Your Bed
Jun 28, 2017
Syn co-founders Simon Le Bon and Nick Wood recently released their original song “Closer to Your Bed”. This song was especially written for their seminar "Beyond An Ordinary World – How Collaboration Inspires Ordinary to Extraordinary" at the 2017 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.
At the seminar, Simon and Nick invited the audience to record themselves performing finger snaps and singing
the main chorus of the song on their phones. The recordings were sent to Syn, which were then added into the final song and video.
