Following her Brit-award win for Best Dance Act of 2022, singer, songwriter and dance music trailblazer Becky Hill has released her brand new single 'Run' - a collaboration with Swedish EDM group Galantis.
The release comes hot on the heels of 'Here For You', another collaboration with Wilkinson written specifically for his album and her smash fan-voted Brit Award win which saw the long-awaited return of the Dance category after a 16 year hiatus.
'Run' is Becky's first collaboration with Galantis, who prouduced and wrote the track alongside MNEK. She says,
“I’m so excited to release Run with Galantis. I wrote it with my best friend MNEK who I’ve been writing with for 10 years and the magic I felt when we first wrote my single Losing back in 2012, I still feel to this day when writing with him. I feel like every single I release has the potential to better the last one and this is no different, especially with Galantis featuring on the record too. With their catalogue of hits with the likes of Little Mix and Years & Years I’m very proud to be a part of another huge collaboration with them. This next phase of my artistry is an extension of me fully coming out as a popstar, but this time with a BRIT Award in hand!”
The accompanying music video was directed by Michael Holyk and shot in Cape Town, packed with stunning landscape shots, vibrant textures and contrasting moods. It see's Becky escape the run-of-the-mill day-to-day, to enjoy a romance in sunnier climes.
Galantis have enjoyed wide acclaim after the release of their debut album which topped the Billboard Dance album chart, garnered numerous platinum and gold RIAA certifications and two Grammy Nominations. The much-in-demand duo have collaborated with everyone from Dolly Parton to Little Mix, David Guetta, Madonna and Katy Perry to name just a few.
The first of a string of releases due from Becky this year, 'Run' is set to further cement her reputation as the Queen of Dance music after an incredible 2021. In addition to music releases, Becky has a packed live schedule which will see her perform at a range of festivals across the UK and beyond.
