R3HAB Shares New Remix for Ella Isaacson & Gallant's “Expectations”
- Dutch DJ R3HAB released a new remix for “Expectations” on June 12th.
The original track was released by Los Angeles-based alt-pop singer-songwriter Ella Isaacson and American singer-songwriter Gallant on May 21st. It was written by Tor Erik Hermansen, Mikkel Storleer Eriksen, Danielle Draizin, Benjamin Samama and Gallant.
This marks the first time Ella Isaacson and Gallant have worked together.
“When I started thinking about the concept of expectations – of myself, my life, my career, my family, I just started to write pages and pages of lyrics and poetry. I wanted to tell a story about coming out as who you are and how sometimes in life you start on a path or a direction and suddenly things change. You change or unlock who you really are in ways you didn’t even expect. We try on a shoe, that just doesn’t fit no matter how much we wanted it to,” Ella Isaacson said of the song. “I loved the song but it was missing something. My co-writer Stargate and I spoke about Gallant and what he does on records - he just brings them to life. His vocals have a soul and emotion that just hits you in the heart. I'd met Chris (Gallant) at NYU years back and Stargate said we should ask him to be a part of this. He sent Gallant the record and he loved it too and wanted to lay something down on it, adding a new verse and these amazing harmonies. It was magical, it really brought it to the next level.”
