Gryffin has teamed with Aloe Blacc for a new single and lyric video "Hurt People." The track is from the San Francisco DJ and producer's upcoming debut studio album Gravity, which will drop later in 2019 via Interscope.
The multi-talented EDM artist unveiled the new release on May 17 via Twitter after premiering the song with Blacc last month live at Coachella. "Hurt People" is the follow-up single to "All You Need to Know," which was released on March 27.
The soulful ballad opens with Gryffin's spacious and understated keyboard work, which highlight's Blacc's powerful lead vocals on the opening chorus as images of an arid desert landscape flash across the screen. The vocals become more subdued while the production builds slowly in layers as Blacc launches into first verse, singing, "When I start to feel I'm in trouble again/I just keep it as friends/Cause I know how it ends."
"Hurt People" is available to order here in digital and streaming formats. Fans can check out the official lyric video above.
"Beyond excited to share 'Hurt People' with you all," writes Gryffin via Twitter. "This is one of the most emotional and meaningful records I’ve ever done."
In advance of his debut studio Gravity, Gryffin released the six-track EP "Gravity Pt. 1" on Dec. 26, 2018 via Dark Room/Geffen. It is available to order here in digital and streaming format.
