- Marshmello Premieres New Muisc Video for “Happier” featuring Bastille
- Back in August, American DJ Marshmello and British pop band Bastille collaborated for a new song “Happier”.
This marks the first time they have worked together. On September 24th, they dropped a heartwarming music video for the song.
The song was written by Steve Mac, Marshmello and Dan Smith. The video was directed by Mercedes Bryce Morgan, starring iCarly's Miranda Cosgrove as the teenager in braces.
"When Bastille sent me happier for the first time, I was taken aback," Marshmello tweeted. "The amount of emotion that you could feel in the lyrics was crazy. As I listened to the song more and more, it reminded me of so many thing I've been through in life; toxic relationships, letting go of things I didn't want to, and just situations where happiness came with a sacrifice. Recently, I lost my best friend, my companion, my life long friend. I wanted this video to embrace the pain that we feel losing or sacrificing something and the cycle of life that comes with it."
"We've been having a great time writing for other artists in and amongst making our Bastille albums and mixtapes," Bastille frontman Dan Smith told NME. "Last year we wrote a song called 'Happier' and everyone got really excited about it so we thought it would be good as a collaboration. We had a really interesting time getting to work on it with Marshmello who managed to find some euphoria in a pretty melancholy, direct song. It's always good to step into somebody else's world for a minute and we're excited to be a part of it."
