Did you recognise the catchy song to which Marc Buckner is sweeping the ladies off their feet in the second season of The Bachelor SA? It is indeed Different Feeling, created by popular local muso Daniel Baron. M-Net and the platinum-selling, award-winning, and chart-topping singer, songwriter, and producer have joined forces to add a fresh sound to the hit reality show.
Daniel Baron has been part of the MultiChoice family for years. He entered the local music industry in 2006 as one of the finalists of Idols South Africa and on his road to stardom Daniel’s melodic tune So Much More was chosen as DStv’s theme song in 2012. To date, the talented musician has been taking the music world by storm with an incredible sixteen radio chart hits and five number ones to his name. In 2016, People Magazine named him “One of South Africa’s greatest pop stars”.
“M-Net has always supported local talent, and Daniel’s hit from 2010 happened to be exactly what we were looking for to give The Bachelor SA season 2 a distinct texture,” says M-Net’s Head of Publicity, Lani Lombard. “It’s incredible to know that Daniel started his journey on one of our platforms and are immensely proud of all his achievements."
Daniel has become renowned for being a ‘chameleon of music’, having crossed over genres with an array of electro-infused pop-dance songs, inspiring stadium-sized rock anthems, and emotional piano ballads that have all taken the world by storm. When Daniel wrote Different Feeling he drew the inspiration for the song from meeting someone new and feeling something you've never felt before. The song, amongst many of his other hits, has been specially crafted to convey messages of love, inspiration, hope, and faith.
How does he feel being part of The Bachelor SA? “As a singer-songwriter and producer, to have my song selected as the theme song of a hit local reality series of this magnitude, is something I only dreamt about,” Daniel Baron said. “It’s a great honour and I hope that my song will add to the message of the show; that in a really short space of time, you can meet the love of your life,” Daniel says.
Different Feeling will be re-released as a special edition remixed version and an acoustic version on Friday 28 February 2020 – in celebration of The Bachelor SA, but also to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the hit single.
Daniel has recently released his latest single titled Cannibal, which is the first single taken from his soon-to-be-released fourth studio album. He is also hard at work producing multiple song projects for numerous upcoming artists.
The Bachelor SA Season 2 will be screened on M-Net from Thursday 13 February at 19:00.
DStv Premium viewers can also watch all the romance on Catch Up or stream the episodes live via their mobile devices on DStv Now.
