Originally recorded as part of Rave On, Van Morrison – a celebration of the legendary singer’s 75th birthday organised by Hot Press magazine during the summer. The decision was made to release it as a single following interest from the UK. 

'Someone Like You 2', was released via Hot Press Records:

“Myself and Matthew spent quite a while deciding the best route to take, I made the decision to write my own verses to allow for change. The song is over 30 years old, so I wanted to put my own modern-day-love-story spin on it, while incorporating samples of Van Morrison’s voice alongside Matthew’s vocals." Malaki

Jack Saunders, the highly influential BBC Radio One DJ, hailed Dublin breakout hip hop star Malaki as “An amazing talent.”
Malaki’s 'Someone Like You 2' was selected for the Next Wave slot on the show, “I think you should fall in love with him,” Saunders said. "It's the most important piece of brand new music you are going to hear tonight on the show and this evening I'm going to introduce you to a guy out of Dublin... For Malaki, words are considered a delicacy. Every single word pondered over to make sure it hits just as hard as the last."
