Background[edit]

In an interview in January 2012, Natalie Horler from Cascada had mentioned the group would start working on more dance-like songs. In February, her Facebook page revealed that Cascada had recorded the track, and that many would love it. On 2 March 2012, it was revealed that the new single was called "Summer of Love", and would be released on March 30. A preview was released on the same day,[1] with many praising the track for its dance composition as opposed to the more "pop" sound of their past few singles which had led to a decline in record sales. It was released March 30 in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and the U.S. In the UK it was released on July 22, it peaked at #127 on the UK singles chart.

Music video[edit]

On 5 March 2012, Natalie posted a Facebook update stating that she was on her way to Tenerife to shoot the music video for the single.[2] A music video was first released onto YouTube on 22 March 2012 at a total length of three minutes and thirty-nine seconds.[3]
