"Happier" is a song by American music producer Marshmello and British band Bastille. Written and produced by Marshmello, with lyrics from Dan Smith and Steve Mac, it was released by Astralwerks on August 17, 2018. It reached number two in the UK Singles Chart and number three on the Billboard Hot 100 and is the highest charting single for Marshmello in both the UK and the US. It is also Bastille's highest charting single as well on both charts surpassing their 2013 single "Pompeii"'s number five peak on the Hot 100 and tying at its number two peak on the UK chart.

Background[edit]

"We've been having a great time writing for other artists in and amongst making our Bastille albums and mixtapes," Bastille frontman Dan Smith told NME. "Last year we wrote a song called 'Happier' and everyone got really excited about it so we thought it would be good as a collaboration. We had a really interesting time getting to work on it with Marshmello who managed to find some euphoria in a pretty melancholy, direct song. It's always good to step into somebody else's world for a minute and we're excited to be a part of it."[1]

Composition[edit]

"Happier" is an upbeat pop song that draws elements from pop rock. Lyrically, the song tells "the sordid tale of a love that's over before one party wants to accept it". Billboard's Kat Bein opined that it "sounds a little more like his radio-forward hits".[2]

Music video[edit]

Three music videos were released to support the single. The initially released one was a simple lyric video. This was followed by a performance video featuring Marshmello playing various instruments and Dan Smith singing and dancing, both in different frames and only appearing together at the end of the video. On September 24, 2018, Marshmello released the official music video through YouTube Premiere, starring Miranda Cosgrove as a teenager who has braces, along with Teala Dunn, Jordyn Jones and James Babson as the father.[3] The music video focuses on Cosgrove's character during her birthday, when she receives a puppy for her birthday. The video then later shows how her life is as she deals with bullying, and struggles with the loss of her childhood pet dog. At the end of the video, Cosgrove's character—now a middle-aged woman—throws a birthday party for her own daughter in which her father gives his granddaughter a dog as a present. The color yellow and Marshmello's logo feature throughout the video, but neither he nor Bastille appear in the video. The video was directed by Mercedes Bryce Morgan and photographed by cinematographer Steve Gainer.
