The truth is - and please do not tell my editor - that there is really no need to criticize a new song.

Want to know how Ran Danker's new song is?

Give yourself two minutes and 52 seconds and hear it in full.

It is also recommended to watch the clip.

The same goes for Noa Kirl, Margie or Coldplay's new. In a world full of content, reviews of TV series can help us determine what our next binge will be out of all the possibilities, and a review of a new movie can help us decide whether to go to the movies or not - But a three-minute song? It will probably take you longer to read this review than to do a Google search and listen to the song.



This is why I hardly write reviews of new songs, except in really exceptional and special cases - and at this time, in these circumstances, and in the reality that was forced upon us - there is nothing more unusual and special than Mr. Danker, in every sense.

The man in charge of "Crazy House," the biggest hit of the past year, is back with a new single that had to scatter a lot of light to deal with the shadow of the previous single.

The amazing thing is, and it's probably something you do not hear on first listen, that "My New Dress", the new single, not only does not fall short of its predecessor, but even manages to surpass it.

The light he spreads is just an excuse.

"There were moments when it seemed to me that the years would pass and the dream would run away, and music would remain just a hobby."

To the full article

Listen to a podcast here with Ren Danker:

I heard "My New Dress" in a premiere (so at least Danker himself claimed) in his sold-out show last August at the Wahl Amphitheater in Tel Aviv. Meir Ariel used to call these songs, which the audience does not yet know, "new immigrants". With a little more seniority on stage from Mr. Danker, the troubadour from shifts would remind the audience of the slogan: "You smiled - tape", and start playing "Company in a Line" or "Summer Seeds". Songs that on first hearing will feel gloomy, but will become classics over time. Pop has a different and immediate charm. Already in his first performance, "My New Dress" sat Bull. It was the best part of Danker's show, which included two performances of "Crazy House," duets with Ivri Lider, a cover of Ella Lee and even nostalgia excerpts from "Our Song."



If he had released "My New Dress" in June, Danker could have competed with Noa Kirl and Ilan Peled's "Trilli Trallah" for the title of the official hit of Pride Events.

However, Danker rightly chose not to marry the queer agenda of the song, but to highlight its pan.

Danker's dance in the clip that accompanies the release of the single does not shout "man in a dress" but simply "freedom".

This is an obvious choice within a genre that lives off of trends, gimmicks and PR perks.

It's easier when you know you have a golden egg in hand.

Everything works.

Everything works in the song. The melodies in houses are sweet and captivating, while the lyrics try to build some twist that only works on the first listen - but after that the song becomes a pop bomb. A combination of Charlie Poth, Bruno Mars and Ella Lee. Danker does not deserve to compete if the climax to which Jordi brought him in the perfect production of "Crazy House", he simply decided after just one song to invent an entirely new genre. If on the way he gives a place to LGBT teenagers some brave role model who doesn't tell anyone with a smile - that's a great bonus.



The credit for the song is divided among many. The words are signed by Noa Golandsky and Mai Safdia. The melody is signed by Safdia with Elia Rossilio, Oren DEGO Emanuel and Danker himself. But just like in the case of "Crazy House" (a joint credit to Danker with Jordi and Ron Bitton) it's hard to imagine anyone else performing the song as soon as you hear it. Whether he wrote the lyrics or not, it's his song just as it's a song about him, and vice versa. On the way he answers the question "Who are you and what do you like?" In the ultimate answer: "Not a matter of great honor, not a matter of the judge, and Allah does not care above." This is not a provocation, this is an appropriate response to a cheeky question.



Danker's renewed pop career as a freelance creator is one of the most interesting that has landed on us in recent years.

A well-known artist who, precisely at a time when we are all wearing masks all the time, decided to tear off all the defenses and appear more exposed than ever.

It worked for him with a "madhouse" far beyond what anyone believed.

The sky is the limit for him, and it remains only to wonder if pop lovers in Israel are willing to accept an artist with a dress.
