With these three dominating the airwaves throughout storied careers, it only seems right to assume that them spending some studio time together would result in a chart-topping tune to add to their lengthy discographies and “You’ve Got To Let Go If You Want To Be Free” certainly checks off all the boxes.
One half of the sibling duo, Howard Lawrence said, “Lyrically this song is my coping mechanism for dealing with anxiety. Sometimes you need to remember where you are instead of holding onto where you want to be. Whether you’re socially anxious, too drunk, or even loving life – I hope that you dance to this song and remember that you’re free!”
“While I was tinkering with the drums, Howard was coming up with the lyrics and melodies. We all kind of chimed in as to how it should flow, how the structure of this song should rise and fall based off of Anton‘s baseline, and built the harmonies on top of that. It pretty much came together in a day as all of our favorite ones seem to do so,” his brother Guy added.
“We have known Anton for several years but never had the opportunity to get in the same room and make some noise together. When the time came, he arrived with one of his analog synthesisers and started jamming on it. He pretty much came up with the whole baseline to the tune in one take playing it by hand which was blowing my mind – it inspired the vibe of the whole song,” they explained:
Zedd commented, “The entire process of working on this song was incredibly collaborative, creative, inspiring and most importantly FUN. It felt like we were in a band, jamming out and playing off each other’s ideas leading us to a place we wouldn’t have reached on our own.”
