NEW MUSIC: GALANTIS, DAVID GUETTA & LITTLE MIX | HEARTBREAK ANTHEM
Swedish DJ duo Galantis, French DJ David Guetta and British girl group Little Mix teamed up to release a new song, “Heartbreak Anthem." This is a huge moment in Little Mix history as it’s their first official release since Jesy announced she was leaving the group in December. However, the group began working on the song with Galantis and Guetta before the coronavirus pandemic, so Jesy’s vocals were included in the arrangement. Recalling the origins of the song, Galantis producer and songwriter Christian Karlsson, told Metro.co.uk: ‘Little Mix came in pretty early on, but they’re hardworking with their vocals.
The Samuel Douek-directed video opens as an orchestra warms up before showtime. The stage production is called "Winged Fatales," which features “angelic beings fallen from another world.” Little Mix — Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Perrie Edwards, and Jade Thirlwall (Jesy Nelson departed the group last December) — appear in winged costumes. Despite the song’s title, the track is about moving on amicably when a relationship doesn’t work out. The lyrics address their respective exes, and they “wish them the best.” “This ain’t a heartbreak anthem,” they declare on the chorus.
