Marshmello and Bastille have unveiled their new collaboration ‘Happier’, a poignant jam that acknowledges the uncomfortable truth that loving someone sometimes requires us to step aside so they can find happiness. Bastille frontman Dan Smith penned the song with Steve Mac (Ed Sheeran, Liam Payne, P!nk).

“We wrote ‘Happier’ last year and thought it would be great as a collaboration,” explains Dan Smith, Bastille’s frontman. “We had a lot of fun working on it with Marshmello, who managed to find joy in the melancholy. It’s always good to step into somebody else’s world for a minute.”
