Euphoric new single available now
Acclaimed LA-based dance producer Gryffin teams up GRAMMY nominated OneRepublic for the euphoric “You Were Loved,” out now via Darkroom/Interscope Records. Nostalgic and heartfelt, the shimmering anthem finds the collaborators reflecting on the one that got away.
On “You Were Loved,” Gryffin confirms his ability to mesh with any artist. From a slow stroll laid with introspective guitar plucks, “You Were Loved” builds into a burst of emotional string synths, transcendent vocal harmonies, and punctuating drums. OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder tugs at the heartstrings with raw vocals that hold regret but, more importantly, optimism and hope that their paths will cross again: “Someday when the future meets the past, that’s when we’ll make up for all of the years we went so fast.”
“I’m extremely excited to release ‘You Were Loved,’ as this record kicks off a new era for my music” says Gryffin on the release. “Working with One Republic has been an incredible experience and we’re really happy to have created a song that really aligns with both of our projects sonically and lyrically. We feel the record is a euphoric, summer anthem that has a strong emotive core to it. We hope everyone enjoys it as much as we did making it.”
Fans can hear these songs and more in Gryffin’s stellar live set as he hits the road in 2022. He’s also announced his return to Red Rocks Amphitheatre headlining for the first time on Friday, October 21st. Artist pre-sale begins Monday, April 4th at 10 am MDT followed by general on-sale on Thursday, April 7th at 10 am MDT. The multi-instrumentalist has also been announced to play Life is Beautiful, Bonnaroo, Firefly Music Festival, and more, while also continuing his successful Las Vegas residency at The Wynn’s Encore Beach Club and XS Nightclub.
