Diane Warren states:

“The year before last, I walked into a store and saw someone so cool who just epitomized rock ‘n’ roll. That was Jyrki, the amazing singer from The 69 Eyes. Now here we are with my song with them, ‘Fade To Grey’ about to be released. I am very excited for everyone to hear it!”

The 69 Eyes frontman Jyrki 69 comments:

“This was exactly like one of those Hollywood dreams: I was hanging on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills when a lady asked me who I was out of the blue. I got confused and that’s about it. Later on, I realized that the lady was Diane Warren, the ultimate greatest songwriter on earth and writer of my favorite The Cult song, ‘Painted On My Heart.’ That was my opportunity to start a musical collaboration with her but I missed my once-in-a-lifetime chance!

“A year passed by, and her hits were following me everywhere. Then I was watching the presentation of the Oscars and she was performing there! I encouraged myself to get in touch with her and here’s the result: an epic power ballad called ‘Fade To Grey’ which this world and THE 69 EYES needed!”

Diane Warren is a Grammy winner with 15 nominations, holds two Golden Globe awards, and is a 15-time Oscar nominee who received an Honorary Oscar in 2022 as voted by the Academy’s Board of Governors.
