Dan + Shay have released their new single ‘Glad You Exist’.
Following their eighth number one single ‘I Should Probably Go To Bed’, ‘Glad You Exist’ was written by the group’s Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney with Ryan Lewis, Tayla Parx and Jordan Reynolds.
The song was released along with a message from the duo:
“To us, ‘Glad You Exist’ is more than just a song. It’s a message of gratitude and hope. A message to everyone in our lives: our fans, our friends, our families, to remind them all how grateful we are to be on the planet at the same time. It’s truly remarkable when you think about it.
We’ve spent the majority of the past year, like many others, searching for answers and a sense of normalcy, but finding comfort in memories of better days (that we all know will return soon). Concerts, bonfires, road trips with friends, even the simple things like date night at a restaurant, or beers at a bar during a football game.
This song has taken on a new meaning not being able to see our loved ones in person, but throughout history, music has always had a special way of bringing people together, even when we are furthest apart. These words hold a special place in our hearts, and hopefully they will in yours too. We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again (and again). We’re just so glad you exist. Every. Single. One of you.”
Dan + Shay have been added plenty of milestones and achievements to their tally including their 6x Platinum single ‘Tequila’ and their huge hit ‘10,000 Hours’ featuring Justin Bieber, which has had more than 1.5 billion streams to date.
