Los Angeles-based artist/producer Gryffin has shared an irresistible new single called “OMG,” featuring multi-platinum Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen. Produced by Gryffin, “OMG” is the latest offering from his forthcoming debut album Gravity.
“OMG” is an infectious synth-pop powerhouse built on glossy beats and a candy-sweet hook — the ideal accompaniment to Jepsen’s full-hearted vocals. Revealing the subtle brilliance of his sonic approach, Gryffin dreams up a dynamic yet elegant production that never fails to let the song’s massive emotion shine.
„Gryffin is a kindred spirit in the way he thinks about music, I’m grateful to be a part of this song.“ Says Carly Rae Jepsen
Says Gryffin on the song, “OMG was one of the most fun experiences I’ve ever had in making a record. Getting to work with Carly Rae Jepsen was such an honor as I’ve been a big fan of her work for a long time and I’m so happy with how the track seamlessly blends both of our styles. I hope everybody loves it as much as we do and feels the fun, summery energy of the record.”
Due out later this year via Darkroom/Geffen Records, Gravity will also include Gryffin’s previously released singles “Hurt People” (a collaboration with singer/songwriter Aloe Blacc, co-written by Bastille frontman Dan Smith) and “All You Need to Know” by Gryffin with SLANDER ft. Calle Lehmann (a #12 hit on the Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic chart).
This fall, Gryffin will embark on a North American headlining tour in support of Gravity. Kicking off on October 11 at the Shrine Auditorium in L.A., the 28-date Gravity II Tour will wrap up on November 26 at the Joy Theater in New Orleans.
