Internationally-acclaimed collaborative project Galantis, superstar DJ/producer David Guetta and global pop superstars Little Mix have joined forces for new single “Heartbreak Anthem” – available now via Atlantic/Big Beat Records.
The explosive collaboration follows hot on the heels of Little Mix’s history-making win at the BRIT Awards as the first female group to ever win the British Group category.
‘Heartbreak Anthem’ arrives alongside a striking music video directed by Samuel Douek, who most recently teamed up with Little Mix for their buzzworthy “Confetti” visual last month. The concept for the sci-fi burlesque world created in the ‘Heartbreak Anthem’ video was inspired by Angela Carter’s infamous 1984 novel Nights at the Circus, a magical realism feminist tale about freedom. The video, which sees Little Mix reimagined as magnificent ‘winged fatales’ on stage, was filmed in the East End’s historic Wilton’s Music Hall, which is said to be one of the world’s oldest grand music halls.
Contrary to its title, “Heartbreak Anthem” proves a declaration of resilience – fusing the jaunty productions of the powerhouse producers with the impeccable harmonies of the world’s biggest girl band.
“We’ve been working on ‘Heartbreak Anthem’ for over a year now! It started with just the chord progression at a studio in London right before the pandemic. As many collaborations have gone in these times, it was a remote work in progress for months, with stems sent back and forth from London to Los Angeles to Stockholm to Paris. We’d been talking with David about working together for a long time, and having Little Mix and their unique, strong vocals has made this one really special. Feels great to finally get this out into the world!” – Christian Karlsson (Galantis).
