Now adding Sam Feldt to his long list of collaborative music heavyweights Gavin James said: “I’m delighted that Sam and I are finally getting to release “Better”. We have had this song ready since the lock down, when it was written. It seems like the perfect time to release it is now seeing how things have changed a lot since that time. The song was written about looking after a friend when they where feeling lost and couldn’t find a way out or a purpose. So this song is for anyone who feels that way right now and I hope this tune brings some hope and positivity to anyone who hears it.”
Now joining the producer’s tastemaker label for the release of Better, the pair marry production prowess with Gavin James’ sultry vocals to make for an emotive anthem as the scene slows down for Autumn.
