Acclaimed L.A.-based dance producer Gryffin teams up with GRAMMY® nominated OneRepublic for the euphoric “You Were Loved,” out via Darkroom /Interscope Records. Nostalgic and heartfelt, the shimmering single finds the collaborators reflecting on the one that got away.
“I’m extremely excited to release You Were Loved, as this record kicks off a new era for my music. Working with One Republic has been an incredible experience and we’re really happy to have created a song that really aligns with both of our projects sonically and lyrically. We feel the record is a euphoric, summer anthem that has a strong emotive core to it. We hope everyone enjoys it as much as we did making it.” - Gryffin

Through this song, Gryffin also confirms his ability to mesh with any artist. From a slow stroll laid with introspective guitar plucks,“You Were Loved” builds into a burst of emotional string synths, transcendent vocal harmonies, and punctuating drums. OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder tugs at the heartstrings with raw vocals that hold regret but, more importantly, optimism and hope that their paths will cross again: “Someday when the future meets the past, that’s when we’ll make up for all of the years we went so fast.”
