Following the summertime sequel to his previous album ‘Joytime‘, our fluffy friend Marshmello has simultaneously announced and teased an exhilarating new tune entitled ‘Happier‘. Taking to Instagram to provide a peek, the global sensation officially announced his newest tune featuring ‘Pompeii‘ artist Bastille. Coming off a massive summer of billboard topping hits such as ‘FRIENDS‘ featuring Anne-Marie, ‘Wolves‘ featuring Selena Gomez, and ‘Everyday‘ with Logic, Marshmello has continually proven why he’s Spotify’s #28 most listened to artist.
Arriving August 17th, ‘Happier‘ which has only received a brief 10 – 15 second snippet seems to come off as much more of a ballad than a celebration. However, despite the initially down tempo ambiance, Bastille excitedly took to Twitter, providing a string of tweets and a tad of banter behind the making of the tune and what it’s like “stepping into someone else’s world for a minute…” Let’s hope this release is everything it has the potential to be.
Last year we wrote a song called “Happier” which we thought would be great as a collaboration. We had a lot of fun getting to work on it with Marshmello who managed to find some joy in the melancholy…
