Galantis, David Guetta & 5 Seconds Of Summer Release “Lighter”

Internationally acclaimed dance music powerhouse Galantis, superstar DJ/producer David Guetta & multi-platinum pop-rock band 5 Seconds of Summer have joined forces for new single “Lighter.”

The soaring collaboration (available now via Big Beat Records) has created an incredible buzz among fans on social media over the past week, teased via a viral mailing of mysterious red dice and title-revealing candles to superfans around the world. The single marks the first new music release from 5 Seconds of Summer in over a year and hot on the tail of David Guetta’s record-breaking hits with the likes of Kim Petras, Bebe Rexha & more.

“Lighter” marks yet another massive team up between Galantis and David Guetta, notably following their gold-certified collaborative single “Heartbreak Anthem” with Little Mix that proved a global sensation, spending 10 weeks on the Billboard Global 200 chart and 13 consecutive weeks in the top 10 on the UK Official Chart.

“‘Lighter’ is a special song because the creative momentum between myself, David and 5SOS aligned so well – we let the collaboration flow into a piece of music that feels emotional and timeless. Michael (Clifford) is such a music lover very much like me, and working closely with him on producing the live elements like strings, guitar and drums was very inspiring. And it’s always great working with David, after the amazing response we had with ‘Heartbreak Anthem’ it’s exciting to be putting out another big record together.” – Christian Karlsson (Galantis)

2023 saw the release of a blockbuster collection of singles and collaborations from Galantis, ushering in a hotly anticipated fourth album era which will mark the first full-length since 2020’s Church. “Lighter” follows “Dreamteam” with Neon Trees and “Little Bit Yours” with Hannah Boleyn, the latter of which is currently charting #13 on US Dance radio. The album is also due to feature “Koala” which was declared “another dance hit” by American Songwriter and “BANG BANG! (My Neurodivergent Anthem)” which Rolling Stone praised as “an upbeat festival-ready banger” alongside a candid statement from Christian Karlsson revealing his ADHD diagnosis and neurodivergent journey.

One of dance music’s most dynamic and in-demand live performers, Galantis has sold out countless venues around the world and has thrilled crowds across the global festival circuit. This year will mark the third-annual return to Brooklyn Mirage for Midsommar on June 22nd and 23rd following Miami Music Week performances at DAER Nightclub on March 23rd and Surfcomber Hotel on March 24th.
