Over the Horizon 2017 makes its debut on Samsung Galaxy S8 : Samsung Mobile and Jacob Collier collaborate on new Galaxy S8 smart phone. Each generation of Samsung’s Galaxy S devices comes preloaded with a fresh new take on 'Over the Horizon', Samsung’s signature, six-note groove. To craft this year’s rendition, Samsung Mobile teamed up with Grammy Award-winning artist Jacob Collier - a leading light among millennial musicians - to compose a tune that’s as unique and inventive as the Samsung Galaxy S8 series themselves. Like the musical prodigy himself, Jacob’s interpretation of 'Over the Horizon 2017' is multifaceted, and mixes elements of contemporary jazz, pop and dance beats to craft an energetic sound that straddles genres.

Playful, upbeat and familiar, 'Over the Horizon' has served as Samsung Galaxy smart phones’ default ringtone for more than six years now. For each new rendition, Samsung has fleshed out the six iconic notes within a different musical genre, producing melodies that have been at times funky, rockin’, orchestral and smooth – wholly distinct, yet instantly recognizable. This will come as no surprise to those familiar with the young artist, who, at just 22 years of age, has already mastered more than 20 different instruments and garnered worldwide critical acclaim for his inventive, self-made videos, unique sound and award-winning arrangements.

Jacob arranged and recorded his version of Samsung’s brand song himself, employing a total of 16 different instruments that are harmonized in the video by a veritable ensemble of Jacobs. The video, like the 2017 song itself, is highly kinetic, having utilized a cutting-edge motion control camera to create a seamless ‘one-man band’ effect. Together, the diverse selection of instruments, which includes drums, a bass guitar and a cowbell, composes a sound that’s rhythmic, melodic and teeming with youth and optimism. Samsung Over the Horizon 2017 will be the used as default tune in the upcoming Galaxy S8 smart phone.
