Channelling a slick, dance-pop vibe, ‘Run Into Trouble’ combines Dan’s instantly-recognisable vocals with smooth synths and an infectious slap house bassline. The release is fresh off the back of Bastille’s recent album Give Me The Future, which charted at #1 in the UK, while Alok recently performed a sold out show at London’s illustrious Ministry of Sound.
“I’ve been a fan of Bastille’s music since the very beginning and to be able to work with Dan and the boys on ‘Run Into Trouble’ was such a fun experience!” Alok explains. “We wanted to create something that represented both of our styles but still leaning into each other’s sound and pushing the track a little deeper. Dan really set the vocals alight and we hope you all enjoy what we created!”
Speaking about the collaboration Bastille says: “We’re massive fans of crying-on-the-dancefloor sad bangers and had such a good time bringing this one to life with ALOK. We love the euphoria that he’s brought to it and can’t wait to play this tune live over the summer.”
Alok and Dan Smith also have a shared interest in climate action, with Dan recently writing the score for forthcoming film Devil’s Breath, directed by Oscar-winner Orlando Van Einsidel, and Alok performing at the Global Citizen concert.
