Background and production Edit
Akiba Jonze had previously released Say Goodbye as his first single. In anticipation of his upcoming debut album, the idea of a second single came into fruition with the creation of "Forbidden Love (Laudate Dominum)". A remix of the title track was also created.
The single was released on November 30 2015.
The title track is very similar to "Crucify Me" from Iñaki's album Empireo: a chill out track with religious overtones an sexually explicit lyrics. It also included gregorian-styled chants from the Psalm 117 ("Laudate dominum omnes gentes/Laudate eum omnes populis", i.e. "Praise the Lord, all ye nations/Praise Him, all ye people").
The "Slightly Esoteric Mix" is of trip hop/chill out style with reversed gregorian chants from the original tracks and piano sections.
