International superstars Marshmello and Bastille share their new single "Happier" out now via Astralwerks.
It's a sad fact that sometimes if you truly love someone you need to let them go. The best thing could be leaving them. It's a harsh reality but it's a reality Marshmello and Bastille express with this new single. Bastille frontman Dan Smith penned the song with Steve Mac (Ed Sheeran, Liam Payne, P!nk).
“We wrote ‘Happier’ last year and thought it would be great as a collaboration,” explains Dan Smith. “We had a lot of fun working on it with Marshmello, who managed to find joy in the melancholy. It’s always good to step into somebody else’s world for a minute.”
The track's upbeat tempo compliments the not so upbeat meaning quite nicely.
Marshmello is re-defining today’s music industry, one hit after another. With the last year’s worth of chart-topping singles featuring collaborations with the likes of Selena Gomez, Migos, Khalid, Logic and more, the artist has clocked a staggering 2+ billion streams across Spotify alone with over 40 million monthly listeners, cementing him as the platform’s #4 Most Streamed Artist in the World.
Bastille is fresh off the #1 Alternative radio hit “Quarter Past Midnight,” which is the band’s third single to top the Mediabase chart. Tickets for the band’s September 24 show at the Wiltern in Los Angeles go on sale today at 10:00 AM PT.
