"High on Life" is a song by Dutch DJ Martin Garrix.[4] A progressive house ballad featuring Swedish vocalist Bonn,[1] it was released via his Stmpd Rcrds label, which is exclusively-licensed to a Sony Music sublabel, Epic Amsterdam.[5] The song's production credits consist of frequent Garrix collaborators Matisse & Sadko, late musician Avicii's co-producer Albin Nedler and established producer Giorgio Tuinfort, who has produced multiple songs with Garrix.[3][6]

Background[edit]

Garrix's label had announced via Twitter the song would be immediately available for release "the moment (Garrix) plays it at #Tomorrowland" during his headlining closing performance.[7][8] It was premiered at the Tomorrowland 2018 music festival in Belgium as the closing song on 29 July 2018.[5] It was also released at midnight on the same day.[9]

"High on Life" is one of the two songs announced by Garrix for release since his last single "Ocean" with Khalid, the other being a collaboration with Justin Mylo that would be released in September.[10]

Production[edit]

The song has been musically compared to Garrix's previous singles such as "Dragon", "Lions in the Wild" and "Forever", as a "energetic and emotion-filled progressive house track".[2] The song is noted as a "return to his roots" in reference to Garrix's regular crossover musical style of pop music to his typical big room house and progressive house.[11]

Described as an uplifting summer song that is a "synth-heavy festival house tune", the song's production has been compared to the style of late Swedish DJ Avicii, who had worked with Garrix for the song "Waiting for Love".[12][13]

Music video[edit]

The music video for the song has also been released, featuring clips from Garrix's Tomorrowland performance which shows "the most standard and spectacular face of Tomorrowland".[14][15] It was released to YouTube and streaming platforms five minutes after the performance at Tomorrowland ended.[16][17]
