With Gravity, Gryffin delivers his most fully realized work to date, a sonically adventurous body of work that instantly transports the audience into a universe of his own making.
“With the album and with the show, the goal is to teleport people into a completely different world,” says the musician otherwise known as Dan Griffith. “From the beginning I’ve always wanted my music to uplift people and take them on some kind of journey, and I feel like I’ve been able to accomplish that in a whole new way that I’m so excited to share with everybody.”
Last week, Gryffin premiered the latest single from Gravity: a full-hearted and feel-good track titled “Body Back”, featuring Swedish singer/songwriter Maia Wright. The song soon drew raves from outlets like Dancing Astronaut, who noted that Gryffin “continues to prove his pop prowess.”
Gravity also includes the previously released singles “OMG” (a #16 hit on Billboard’s US Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, featuring vocals from Grammy Award-nominated singer/songwriterCarly Rae Jepsen), “Hurt People” (a collaboration with singer/songwriter Aloe Blacc, co-written by Bastille frontman Dan Smith), “Baggage” by Gryffin with Gorgon City ft. AlunaGeorge (praised by Dancing Astronaut as a “perfectly poignant and danceable requiem to the summer season”), “All You Need to Know” by Gryffin with SLANDER ft. Calle Lehmann (a #12 hit on the Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic chart), and “Remember” ft. ZOHARA (a track that reached #1 on Dance radio).
