Cover Drive have recorded new material with William Larsen.

The music producer and songwriter – also known as Will IDAP – is responsible for international hit single “Am I Wrong” by Norwegian duo Nico & Vinz. The track peaked to number four on the US Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart.

He also co-wrote “Personal” for Jessie J along with Jenna Andrews and Elle Varner. The track appears on the British singer/songwriter’s third album, “Sweet Talker,” out now via Lava Records and Republic Records.

Meanwhile, Cover Drive – consisting of members Amanda Reifer, T. Ray Armstrong, Jamar Harding and Barry Hill – are currently working on their upcoming sophomore studio collection.

The still-untitled project serves as the follow-up to 2012’s “Bajan Style,” which spawned hit singles “Lick Ya Down,” “Twilight,” “Sparks” and “Explode,” as well as productions from Jonathan Rotem, Steve Mac and Future Cut.

Current singles “No One Knows” and “Love Junkie” are now available for download via iTunes and all other digital outlets.
