David Guetta: I’ve spent most of my time producing new music! At the beginning of the lockdown, I was writing a new song almost every day. I’ve had a lot of time to reflect and also refine myself. I’ve also kept myself busy with my ‘United At Home’ performances. We did the first show in Miami and it was amazing to be able to connect with people again after the lockdown. 8000 people joined in from their balconies, I could hear the crowd and it still felt like I was interacting with them.
