After a particularly fruitful year with a #1 on U.S. Dance Radio for ‘Save Me Tonight’, ARTY continues to showcase his mastery teaming up with one of the most talented artists in the game.
With ‘You’re Not Alone’ as his first new single of 2020, the electronic music heavyweight shares the spotlight with one of L.A.’s brightest stars: Griff Clawson.
Inspiring hope in listeners worldwide, this meaningful single shines with the empowering and gripping vocals of L.A. singer-songwriter Griff Clawson on a backdrop of shining piano tones and eruptive melodies. ‘You’re Not Alone’ takes you by the hand on – and beyond – the dance floor.
Talking about the meaning of the song, ARTY says: “It’s easy to feel like wanting to shut down in our socially anxious world where appearances are prioritized and mental health is an afterthought. ‘You’re Not Alone’ is about reminding people that feelings are temporary and who you’ve grown to be on the inside matters most. It’s hard to escape feelings of loneliness and depression; this song is here to encourage that there’s more than darkness in this world, and to never give up.”
“As I was writing the song with my friends Rik Annema and Cimo Fränkel, we started talking about how it can be tough to see the light at the end of the tunnel when you’re going through something”, Griff Clawson adds. “We realized that we all just put on a brave face to get by sometimes. The song flowed pretty naturally and quickly, and our conversation about our own highs and lows shaped the lyrics. The song is really about the fact that no matter how bad things seem, you’ve made it through so much already and you’re not the only one who’s going through something like it.”
