“It was amazing to make this song together” says Garrix. “Dean is such a good friend and an exciting talent. He writes deeply personal lyrics and his style of music is timeless.”
Lewis makes for a formidable collaboration, with over 2.5 billion streams of his heartfelt music. His debut album debuted at #1 in his native Australia — where he also received four ARIA nominations — and hit #1 in the iTunes Singer/Songwriter Album Charts.
“Since my career began, collaborations never felt like something I saw myself pursuing. As a song writer, who also sings, the entire concept just felt foreign. Until I met Martin. We spent about a week together locked behind closed doors in Amsterdam working on a song, which thought might end up be sung by someone else. But as the track progressed is started to sound a lot like me, but also very Martin. It’s a real collaboration with a guy who’s now become a great friend.”The track will be revealed via a timed release alongside a brand-new music video today. Prepare to hear this one dominate the next few months!
