Lukas Graham Drops New Music Video for “Share That Love” featuring G-Eazy
- Danish pop band Lukas Graham teamed up with American rapper G-Eazy to release a new song “Share That Love” on August 30th via Warner Records.
The song is produced by long-term producer Rissi. This marks the first collaboration between Lukas Graham and G-Eazy.
On September 30th, an official music video for the song was released. Directed by Marc Klasfeld.
Lukas Graham shot the video around his hometown of Copenhagen, Denmark. Meanwhile, G-Eazy drives a vintage convertible in LA.
Lukas Graham tweeted, “We went back to basics on this one. Back home where i grew up. Love looks like a lot of things and isn't always romantic, shots from Copenhagen to LA.”
Recently, Lukas Graham tweeted about their new album, “So I’ve been writing & collecting songs for an album, and I LOVE the songs that are competing to be on it. BUT, I have people telling me not to think about an album, because people only listen to singles & selected/highlighted tracks now."
"So I’m being told to make an album of only singles, no 'album tracks'. Had I done so before songs like 'Funeral' [and] 'Hold My Hand' (finish the list yourself) would have never made it on an album. And that kind of thinking concerns me. Because I believe in listening to an album from start to finish, with highs & lows, as an experience. And I’m honestly a little lost atm. I just like writing & singing songs. So, what is your take on all this?”
- Lukas Graham said of the song, “I grew up in a neighbourhood where if you had something, you shared it. The place is called Christiania. It’s an old army base that got squatted in 1971. The community operates from the concept that nobody owns their house and that you can do what you want, as long as you don’t inhibit others from doing what they want. For all the upsides to living in Christiania, there was also trouble with the police, or issues with gangs in the city.
I’ve tried to embody all of that in this song, and when I listen to it I’m reminded of some of the ways our community has really come together, like all the great parties we’ve thrown, or the huge protests where we’ve marched against the government threatening to evict us from Christiania. In these troubling times, I guess it is more important than ever to share what we have, especially your love.”
