Bastille’s Dan Smith wants you to be happier, or at least that what he claims within the lyrics of “Happier” one of the newer singles to come from electronic producer and DJ known as Marshmello. Smith and Marshmello released their collaborative single back in mid-August and released the official music video for the track the following month. Marshmello shared a new, alternative music video for the catchy single over the weekend and its colorful, easygoing themes give the song new life, even if it is just a few months old.
Graham crackers, fresh Nike kicks and smiley balloons themed like Marshmello can all be seen in the alternate music video for the pop track, which can be watched in full above. The video almost acts like a digital comic strip, separately enclosing the two artists with a new color in each frame. Smith, of course, is the face of the video, as he can be seen singing and dancing throughout the video while Marshmello in his standard performance costume is also seen jamming away on instruments ranging from guitars and drums to pianos. The two are never in the same colored square at the same time, but their contrasting color schemes and personalities in the video certainly offer a unique way of experiencing the track, which peaked all the way at No. 1 on Billboards “U.S. Dance Chart” upon its release.
The single was left off of Marshmello’s chart-topping sophomore album, Joytime II, when it arrived back on June 22. Dan Smith isn’t the only pop singer who the famous DJ has collaborated with over the past few years. Selena Gomez, Khalid and Logic are just a few of the popular artists who have teamed up with Marshmello since the DJ began emerging within the electronic music scene in 2016.
While he probably won’t be releasing a new album anytime soon, Marshmello will be appearing at the loaded Decadence 2018 event at Denver’s Colorado Convention Center on New Year’s Eve alongside GRiZ, ILLENIUM, Big Wild and many more.
