Marshmello Premieres Alternate Music Video for “Happier” featuring Bastille
- Back in September, American DJ Marshmello released a music video for “Happier”, which featured an emotional story and amassed 96 million views on YouTube.
The song features British pop band Bastille. But Marshmello and Bastille didn't appear on the video.
Three months later, he dropped another music video for the song as alternate music video, directed by Daniel Malikyar and Karam Gill.
This time, both of artists appear on the video.
The track was written by Steve Mac, Marshmello and Dan Smith.
Marshmello said of the song, “When Bastille sent me Happier for the first time, I was taken back. 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 things I’ve been through in my 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, and 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. I hope this song and video can bring closure in any situation you may be and make us all happier.”
