UPDATE 20/01/2022: Griff and Sigrid have released their new collaboration, Head On Fire.
Watch the video for the song - where the duo set fire to a theatre and dance through the smoke - below.
The track is an 80s inspired banger, that rips from Kate Bush and Duran Duran, with some lovely subversions on pop production standards, such as an extended beat drop in the chorus.
ORIGINAL ARTICLE: The new track is the first time the two rising stars will have collaborated together, and the duo shared on social media that the track is coming in just a few weeks.
"Pop girls unite," Griff said, revealing the track will drop January 19th. "Support our tired little faces.
Having teased the team-up last week, and saying that they were keen to work with each other, the two stars had posted a series of cryptic videos on socials and Griff has now officially confirmed the collaboration and shared a snippet of it in a new TikTok video.
