Today, Dutch wunderkind Martin Garrix releases his new single “Summer Days” feat. Macklemore and Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy via Sony Music International/STMPD RCRDS/RCA Records. The feel-good, summer ready single marks Garrix’s first time working with Macklemore and Patrick Stump.
Of the collaboration Garrix said: “'’Summer Days’ is one of those tracks that makes you want to get in the car with your friends and blast it with the windows down. I’m honored to be working with Patrick and Macklemore on this track since I think they are both great artists. They are both very different in terms of style which gave the track new dimensions. I’m super happy with the end result!''
On working with Martin, Macklemore said: “I've always loved collaborating with artists from different genres. Martin and I have talked about doing something for a while now, and just needed the right record. When he sent me this, I knew it was the one. Patrick was added to the hook and just made it that much better. I’m hella pumped about the way it turned out and excited for the world to hear it.”
Patrick Stump on “Summer Days”: "I’m just happy to get to be a part of a fun song like this where someone lets me sing falsetto. Martin’s a hell of a producer and really knows his stuff. I was also pretty amped to hear Macklemore was involved as well. All in all, a fun project to work on."
“Summer Days” comes on the heels of his latest club track, “No Sleep” ft. Bonn reaching #1 on US Dance Radio this week. This is Martin’s 4th time topping the US Dance Radio chart after previously reaching #1 with “High On Life” ft. Bonn, “Scared To Be Lonely” with Dua Lipa and “Ocean” with Khalid.
The track is the official follow up to Garrix’s single “Ocean” ft. Khalid which has enjoyed over half a billion streams and video views worldwide. “Ocean” is now certified platinum in the US by the RIAA.
Last month, Garrix was named #6 on the Billboard Dance 100 Artists of 2019 list which was announced in conjunction with Miami Music Week where he headlined Ultra Music Festival. He also hosted a stage for his record label STMPD where his developing artists performed.
Next month, he will headline the Shaky Beats festival in Atlanta as well as headline other festivals throughout the summer including Fuji Rock in Japan, Lollapalooza Paris, Secret Solstice in Iceland, amongst others. Garrix and STMPD RCRDS will host stages at Sziget Festival in Hungary, Lollapalooza Berlin, Tomorrowland in Belgium and more. He will also continue his residency at Ushuaia Ibiza this summer, every Thursday.
