It’s been more than a two-year odyssey for Gryffin since the groundwork for his freshman full-length effort, Gravity, was initially set into motion during the fall of 2017. The project’s aggregate roll-out, which constituted a formal five-track EP release last December, as well as close to a dozen official singles, has decisively come full circle following its lead single introduction with “Nobody Compares To You.”

From bubbling beneath the charts with unofficial SoundCloud remixes to formally producing music in tandem with an abundance of Grammy-nominated acts, Gryffin has navigated a meticulous avenue to his current feat: Gravity out in its entirety, containing a track list that spans 16 sublime titles.

While there are more than a modest number of never-before-heard Gryffin productions to briskly dive into, the 11 previous singles from Gravity cannot be forgotten, including hits like “Remember” with Zohara, “Tie Me Down” with Elley Duhé, “All You Need To Know” with Slander, “OMG” with Carly Rae Jepsen in addition to a myriad of others.

In preparation for the album’s forthcoming release just over the past month, Gryffin unwrapped two final gifts as he continued to exemplify that there would not be a single mediocre listing on Gravity with “Baggage” alongside Gorgon City and AlunaGeorge, and most recently, “Body Back.” In terms of brand new music from Gryffin, perhaps the most enticing listen from the unbeknownst album designations is his long-awaited union alongside Seven Lions, which was debuted during the very first GRAVITY II LIVE spectacle in Brooklyn this past August.

Comprehensively, Gravity is engulfed with transcendent productions that encompass further collaborations with DROELOE, a reunion alongside Zohara, and a duet between MARINA and Model Child. For those fortuitous enough to be in attendance for any of Gryffin’s live performances this past summer, he treated fans to his ethereal drumline-induced introductory piece as the project’s commencing piece that provides the cherry on top to one of the year’s most remarkable dance music bodies of work.

Those who have watched Justin Caruso‘s ascension into ubiquitous popularity, thanks to his catchy crossover releases and stellar remixes, know that 3LAU took the producer under his wing years ago before Caruso had made his lasting mark. Their friendship has remained steady, and the artists have now come together with a melodic new release, “Better With You.”

The track combines the best elements of both producers’ styles, elevated by Iselin‘s flowing vocals and the infectious electronic backdrop, which synthesizes a bouncy progression, luring the listener in note by note.

3LAU spoke on the collaboration in an official release, saying, “Justin Caruso and I met years ago, and when we sat down to write ‘Better With You’ together, we wanted to capture the essence of dance music culture with the song.”

Dance music is all about sharing experiences with the people you love, the same way DJs all support each other’s music, and best friends get to escape frustrations of daily life at live shows. We really hope you like this one, and shout out to Iselin who wrote an incredibly beautiful vocal.”

Listeners may recognize the Norwegian singer Iselin, from her syrupy vocals on Alan Walker‘s “Faded.” Both Caruso and 3LAU have been keeping busy with new music releases, and “Better With You” is a strong start for the pair moving forward into 2019. The track is out now on Armada, which marks 3LAU’s return to a major label after years of releasing via his own label, Blume.
