Carly Rae Jepsen Features On Gryffin’s New Single, ‘OMG’

Los Angeles-based artist/producer Gryffin has shared an irresistible new single called ‘OMG’, featuring multi-platinum Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen. Produced by Gryffin, ‘OMG’ is the latest offering from his forthcoming debut album, ‘Gravity’.



‘OMG’ is an infectious synth-pop powerhouse built on glossy beats and a candy-sweet hook — the ideal accompaniment to Jepsen’s full-hearted vocals. Revealing the subtle brilliance of his sonic approach, Gryffin dreams up a dynamic yet elegant production that never fails to let the song’s massive emotion shine.

Speaking about ‘OMG’, Carly Rae Jepsen said,

“Gryffin is a kindred spirit in the way he thinks about music, I’m grateful to be a part of this song.”

Gryffin adds,

“‘OMG’ was one of the most fun experiences I’ve ever had in making a record.  Getting to work with Carly Rae Jepsen was such an honour as I’ve been a big fan of her work for a long time and I’m so happy with how the track seamlessly blends both of our styles.  I hope everybody loves it as much as we do and feels the fun, summery energy of the record.”

Due out later this year via Darkroom/Geffen Records, Gravity’ will also include Gryffin’s previously released singles ‘Hurt People’ (a collaboration with singer/songwriter Aloe Blacc, co-written by Bastille frontman Dan Smith), and ‘All You Need to Know’, by Gryffin with Calle Lehmann (a #12 hit on the Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic chart).
