LA-based dance producer Gryffin has just released the title track to his upcoming sophomore album, “Alive.” This heartbreak anthem is a collaboration with Swedish singer/songwriter Calle Lehmann, whom Gryffin has worked with in the past in hits like “All You Need To Know” with Slander and “After You” with Jason Ross. A pleading confession of post-breakup longing, “Alive” starts delicately but quickly builds to a majestic intensity, propelled by fluttering rhythms, massively catchy melodies, and a gloriously gut-punching chorus. Not only a testament to Gryffin’s masterful use of dynamics, “Alive” once again proves Gryffin and Calle’s chemistry and shared gift for transforming heartache into pure euphoria.
“Alive” premieres as Gryffin moves forward with his nonstop run of live shows and festival dates. Known for his explosive and emotionally charged live set, the multi-instrumentalist will take the stage next month at Bonnaroo, in addition to continuing his successful Las Vegas residency at The Wynn’s Encore Beach Club and XS Nightclub. On Friday, October 21, he’ll also return to Red Rocks Amphitheater to headline the legendary venue for the very first time.
