Connor Cruise Debuts ‘Closer To Heaven’ At Listening Party With Mason Musso
Connor Cruise stepped up to the DJ booth at his “Closer to Heaven” Listening Party at New York City’s Dream Downtown on Monday night.
Cruise, son to divorced Hollywood pairing Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, was hosting the party to debut his first single – "Closer to Heaven." Cruise worked with producer DJ Poet and former Metro Station singer Mason Musso on the track – both of whom were in attendance at the Manhattan bash.
Cruise, 18, has been DJ-ing with relative frequency over the last year, spinning at parties with Nervo and Steve Aoki, but “Closer to Heaven” is his first single. “I was trying to make an upbeat commercial dance music track that makes you feel good and is more of an anthem,” Connor told Billboard of the song.
“I have always loved working with DJ Poet. Ever since I started producing he has really helped to mentor and guide me through the whole world of music,” Cruise continued, adding, “When I made the track I had Mason’s voice in mind the whole time. When it came time to put a vocal on it, having him was perfect."
