Gryffin Premieres New Single “Body Back” Ft. Maia Wright
L.A.-based artist/producer Gryffin has shared the latest single from his forthcoming album Gravity: a full-hearted and feel-good track titled “Body Back,” featuring Swedish singer/songwriter Maia Wright. The highly anticipated full-length debut from Gryffin, Gravity will be released via Darkroom/Geffen Records on October 24th.
Listen to “Body Back” by Gryffin ft. Maia Wright HERE.
Dance-ready and deeply emotional, “Body Back” delivers a gloriously catchy getting-back-together anthem. As Wright makes a passionate plea to reunite with a jilted lover, Gryffin matches her heart-melting melodies and crystalline vocals with a sleek arrangement of shimmering beats.
“Body Back” follows Gryffin’s recent premiere of the head-turning video for “OMG” — a #16 hit on Billboard’s US Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, featuring vocals from multi-platinum Grammy Award-nominated singer/songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen. Directed by fast-rising filmmaker Ani Acopian, the bright and playful visual arrived on October 10th. Check it out HERE.
Along with “Body Back” and “OMG,” Gravity will include several other hit singles from Gryffin, such as “Hurt People” (a collaboration with singer/songwriter Aloe Blacc, co-written by Bastille frontman Dan Smith), “Baggage” by Gryffin with Gorgon City ft. AlunaGeorge (praised by Dancing Astronaut as a “perfectly poignant and danceable requiem to the summer season”), “All You Need to Know” by Gryffin with SLANDER ft. Calle Lehmann (a #12 hit on the Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic chart), and “Remember” ft. ZOHARA (a track that reached #1 on Dance radio).
Last week in L.A., Gryffin kicked off his fall U.S. headlining tour with two sold-out shows at the Shrine Auditorium (marking a total of 10,000 tickets sold). The Gravity II Tour will bring Gryffin’s newly reinvented live show to 35 dates across the country, wrapping up on December 7 at SOMA in San Diego.

More on Gryffin:
Born Dan Griffith, Gryffin got his start in music as a classically trained pianist and guitarist and also played in several bands. After receiving an electrical engineering degree from the University of Southern California, he pursued a path in music production, drawing equally from his carefully honed musicality and edgy ingenuity. Gryffin made his breakthrough in 2016 with two singles showcasing his melodic take on dance music: “Heading Home” ft. Josef Salvat (which shot to #1 on Spotify’s US and Global Viral charts) and the Bipolar Sunshine collaboration “Whole Heart.” In addition, his 2017 smash single “Feel Good” — with Illenium and featuring Daya — peaked at #18 on the Dance/Mix Show Airplay charts. Gryffin’s recent triumphs include “Tie Me Down” ft. Elley Duhé (an August release that hit #2 on the Spotify US Viral Chart and #9 on the Global Viral Chart, with over 80 million streams to date) and “Remember” ft. Zohara (a November release that garnered 6.5 million streams in its first few weeks and earned support from Tiesto, who featured the track on an Instagram story).
