Galantis, David Guetta

David Guetta collaborates with Galantis & Little Mix on new single ‘Heartbreak Anthem’: Listen


Future-Rave pioneer David Guetta has teamed up with Galantis, and pop band Little Mix, for new single ‘Heartbreak Anthem’, available now via Big Beat Records. The explosive collaboration – contrary to its title – proves a declaration of resilience – fusing the jaunty productions of the powerhouse producers with the impeccable harmonies of the world’s biggest girl band. Adding his own take on the release, Christina Karlsson from Galantis, added: “We’ve been working on ‘Heartbreak Anthem’ for over a year now! It started with just the chord progression at a studio in London right before the pandemic. As many collaborations have gone in these times, it was a remote work in progress for months, with stems sent back and forth from London to Los Angeles to Stockholm to Paris. We’d been talking with David about working together for a long time, and having Little Mix and their unique, strong vocals has made this one really special. Feels great to finally get this out into the world!”
