Internationally-acclaimed collaborative project Galantis, superstar DJ/producer David Guetta & global pop superstars Little Mix have joined forces for new single “Heartbreak Anthem” – available now via Big Beat Records. The explosive collaboration arrives alongside a striking music video directed by Samuel Douek, who most recently teamed up with Little Mix for their buzzworthy “Confetti” visual last month. Contrary to its title, “Heartbreak Anthem” proves a declaration of resilience – fusing the jaunty productions of the powerhouse producers with the impeccable harmonies of the world’s biggest girl band.
“We’ve been working on ‘Heartbreak Anthem’ for over a year now! It started with just the chord progression at a studio in London right before the pandemic. As many collaborations have gone in these times, it was a remote work in progress for months, with stems sent back and forth from London to Los Angeles to Stockholm to Paris. We’d been talking with David about working together for a long time, and having Little Mix and their unique, strong vocals has made this one really special. Feels great to finally get this out into the world!” – Christian Karlsson (Galantis).
The story of Galantis started back in 2009. Working as Bloodshy, Karlsson’s songwriting collaborations have included Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Katy Perry and Britney Spears (whose “Toxic” earned a GRAMMY for “Best Dance Recording”). This collaborative nature led to the birth of the Galantis project which had its live debut at 2014’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and has continued on years later as one of dance music’s most dynamic and in-demand live performers.
