Gryffin Lead Single of New Album: ‘LAST OF US’ With Rita Ora

Dance music maverick Gryffin has unveiled his new single ‘LAST OF US’ featuring British singer-songwriter Rita Ora. The beginning of a new era for Gryffin, ‘LAST OF US’ serves as the first track off his anticipated third studio album PULSE, due out later this year via Virgin Music. ‘LAST OF US’ sees Gryffin hone in on the anthemic dance sounds that have cemented his status as a beloved electronic act. Ripe with bright, euphoric synthwork and pulsating basslines, Gryffin lays the groundwork for Rita Ora’s rich vocals and heartwarming tale of everlasting love. A paragon of the upbeat energy fans can expect on PULSE, ‘LAST OF US’ lends itself to Gryffin’s harmonious balance of dancefloor-focused melodies and emotive lyricism. Listen here.

“‘LAST OF US’ marks the beginning of a brand new era of music for me, and I couldn’t be more excited. ‘LAST OF US’ gets back to the feelings and emotions I got when I first fell in love with dance music. I wanted this to have a euphoric, anthemic feel to it, but also be very emotional at the same time. Rita Ora completely elevated the song to another level once she brought her vocals into the track, and I’m so happy with how this turned out. Hope you enjoy the track as much as Rita and I had making it.”

‘LAST OF US’ is the first chapter into Gryffin’s forthcoming album. Inspired by the progressive sounds of his 2000s roots, PULSE harnesses the uplifting energy and interpersonal spirit that first sparked his love of dance music. Set to arrive later this year, the album embraces the unity and emotional connectivity that is universal no matter the dance floor. 

Japanese-American producer, instrumentalist, songwriter, and DJ Dan Griffith has built a breathtaking catalog of melodic, lyrically-led dance originals and remixes as Gryffin. His platinum and gold-certified discography features collaborations with crossover acts like OneRepublic, Tinashe, MØ, Carly Rae Jepsen, and Aloe Blacc, as well as electronic contemporaries including Kygo, Gorgon City, and Seven Lions.

This year, Gryffin will launch into his PULSE era, and bring the album to life with performances at renowned electronic festivals like Ultra and the return of his Wynn Nightlife residency in Las Vegas.
