Gryffin, Blanke enlist Eyelar for ‘Colors’

Chromatic new single available now

Multi-Platinum producer Gryffin celebrates love on new single “Colors” via Darkroom. A collaboration with Australian artist-producer Blanke, “Colors” finds Gryffin’s ethereal production taken to new heights by soaring vocals from Dutch-born, UK-based artist Eyelar.

The visceral track begins with gentle synths before momentum gives way to a swelling chorus. Eyelar celebrates the simple things, reminiscing about cruising down the highway at night or sunsets and summer rain. She then describes the love bursting from within her. “You make me see who I am,” she serenely belts on the chorus. “When I discover your colors.” Ultimately, Eyelar says the song is “about unity, acceptance, and love.”

“When Eyelar first sent me ‘Colors,’ I immediately fell in love,” Gryffin says, “however, it took several iterations over the course of a year and the assistance of good friend Blanke to perfect. “This song represents so much of what my music is about, and I hope everyone feels the emotions and power of this record,” he says.

“‘Colors’ feels like one of the most special songs I’ve been part of,” adds Blanke, who previously remixed Gryffin’s single, “Tie Me Down.” “It moves me in a way I don’t often feel, and it’s been so meticulously put together and lovingly crafted by myself and Gryffin with Eyelar’s incredible topline. I’m so proud to put this out into the world.”

“Colors” is the latest stellar track that Gryffin has shared this blockbuster summer. The acclaimed artist dropped the dance floor-ready “Caught Up” featuring Olivia O’Brien at the top of the year and the aspirational “Alive” featuring Calle Lehmann in May. He followed that with the daring, moody, MØ-assisted “Reckless” last month. Additionally, Gryffin continues to own the stage at his long-standing residency at Las Vegas hotspots The Wynn’s Encore Beach Club and XS Nightclub.

All of it is leading up to his sophomore album, Alive, which will be supported by his most ambitious tour yet beginning August 19th, including his biggest-ever headlining set at Los Angeles Historic Park on November 4th.
