Fresh off his success with Bastille on “Happier,” it looks like Marshmello is ready to join forces with another rock band for another collaboration. On Friday (March 8), the masked DJ and Scottish trio CHVRCHES came together for a brand new tune. Titled “Here with Me,” the new track sounds like it could easily find a home on either act’s discography.
The barely-three-minute song mixes frontwoman Lauren Mayberry’s unmistakable vocals with Marshmello’s typical electronic sound. In addition to the new tune, the collaborators released the lyric video for the song which features animated versions of both CHVRCHES and Marshmello as the lyrics play across the screen. Watch the lyric video for “Here with Me” above.
“Here with Me” is currently available for purchase here.
The joint track comes almost a year after CHVRCHES released their third studio album, Love is Dead. Months after the album’s release, the band decided to share a surprise EP titled Hansa Session with their fans. The EP featured redone versions of five songs which were featured on Love is Dead.
The collection of tunes was recorded at Berlin’s famed Hansa studio which inspired the five-track album’s name. Legendary musicians such as Depeche Mode, U2, Iggy Pop, and David Bowie all recorded at that studio.
As for Marshmello, the DJ released his sophomore album in June 2018. Titled Joytime II, the album was not exactly well-received by critics. No matter the criticism, the DJ announced shortly after that he was working on its follow-up, Joytime III.
