As you read this, imagine me to be sitting somewhere on a beach in New Jersey (hold your horrified gasps) surrounded by friends and a Bose Soundlink Max speaker blaring my favorite tracks. I'm always on aux, dear reader, as I'm sure you can imagine. My Spotify playlists are highly sought after by a specific group of people (my friends).

NOTD knows how to make a pop-dance fusion track that tops the charts. You may have heard their iconic collaborations, “I Wanna Know (feat. Bea Miller)”, “So Close (feat. Georgia Ku, Felix Jaehn, Captain Cuts)”, and “I Dont Know Why (feat. Astrid S).” These songs have catchy beats and equally enticing lyrics that had fans singing along at all hours of the day.

Felix Jaehn's "Close Your Eyes" Is an Anthem Everyone Needs to Hear

The song is a satisfying result of Jaehn's creative evolution and offers words of encouragement to his supporters to stay positive, keep calm, and keep going.

Felix Jaehn has a habit of crafting catchy tropical house tracks, but on "Close Your Eyes," the sentiment is much deeper than that of his big hits.

Written specifically for his fans, Jaehn uses "Close Your Eyes" as an opportunity to address mental health, and at the end of the song, he can be heard asking his fans, "How are you doing? I hope you're well." This track is the last of the year from Jaehn and the latest in a slew of releases to dissect and spread awareness on mental health issues. Jaehn, who co-wrote the track alongside Miss Li, is in the middle of a creative journey.

Recently, he's dedicated himself to co-writing all of his music and having a more direct hand in all aspects of his creative identity. "Close Your Eyes" is a direct and satisfying result of that evolution, serving as words of encouragement to his supporters to stay positive, keep calm, and keep going.

The song, like all of Jaehn's biggest tracks, is a certified earworm, with an infectious hook courtesy of Miss Li and an undulating bass courtesy of German duo Vize. The track inspires hope in its listeners and will undeniably be on repeat at New Year's Eve parties.
