Martin Garrix joins forces with G-Eazy and Sasha Alex Sloan on his newest song, ‘Love Runs Out’. Exploring a different sound once again, ‘Love Runs Out’ is a fresh hip-hop track with a melodic hook and emotional lyrics that are instantly captivating. G-Eazy’s melodic and catchy signature hip-hop sound and Sloan’s mysterious and sultry vocals perfectly blend in with Garrix’s production where all three artists shine in their own way.
“Love Runs Out’ addresses the feeling of being afraid your love story will fade out at one point, with G-Eazy and Sloan questioning whether there would still be something left to mend when they fall out of love.
On 2 August, Martijn start teasing what seems like a teaser picture for new music on Instagram story.

Sasha Sloan has frequently collab with DJs, for example with Kygo, Odesza, and Kaskade. While G-Easy has also previously collab with other DJs such as Dillon Francis and Carnage.
The new song, called “Love Runs Out”, will be release this Friday, 6 August 2021. You can pre-save the song in Spotify here. I’m excited to see what Martijn has in store and how these 3 artists will blend together in this song.
On 5 July 2021, Martin Garrix appear in an interview with Radio 538. They go back to Martijn’s interview in 2019 about the highlight of his 2019 and Martijn said it was when he was in the studio with an artist. It turns out the artist that Martijn meant was Bono. He said he flew to France in summer 2019 to record the song with Bono and it was so unrealistic. He knows Bono from videos of U2 live from Slane Castle and then to sit and stand next to Bono singing his song in the studio, it makes no sense to him.
Regarding the song, he said he learn so much from Bono and also The Edge. As big rockstars they have experienced everything and had performed in stadiums all around the world several times, but they’re still so hungry and want to learn new things. They are also very open to idea which make their EURO 2020 anthem a very special collaboration for Martijn. It’s also a big learning process to him to see how they approach certain things, how they they work, etc.
Martin Garrix usually involved with the lyrics for his songs, but for We Are The People, Bono rewrote all of his lyrics. His original lyrics was “United we’re indestructible. We don’t rely on a miracle. It’s here and now let it bring us together”, and Bono thought it was a bit too happy. He said they should make lyrics for football tournament and it’s better if the lyrics are deeper.
UEFA entrust Martijn with the music of EURO 2020, including when the players walk into the field and that is the orchestral version of the original song. Martijn reveals that the orchestra and choir for the orchestral version of We Are The People was recorded in Hilversum. It was very special because Martijn took his grandma and parents to the recording day.
The pandemic make Martijn had so much time in the studio which make he had so many unreleased music. Martin Garrix said he has a lot of club/festival songs but he want to save it until his first show to play it there. Martijn also said that in July he will release a new song with a cool American rapper and a female singer. He also busy with AREA21 that will release an album at the end of the year.
Talking about his upcoming shows, Martijn said he want to start his set with a lot of euphoric song and gradually give a lot more energy then close it with something euphoric again. Maybe he will open or close his shows with the remix of We Are The People but he doesn’t know yet.
Who do you think the cool American rapper and female singer that will collaborate with Martin Garrix? Comment below and let me know.
On 28 June 2021, Martin Garrix appear on FERGAL D’ARCY‘s show on Today FM. About his EURO 2020 song, Martin Garrix said that it was an incredible chance and opportunity.
It was crazy. But I’m very happy with how it all turn out. The delivery process was very stressful but it was also a lot of fun. I learn a lot and I’m very happy looking back at what we did.
U2 is one of the biggest rock band, so how did Martin can get them to featured on the song? Martin said Bono and The Edge jump on board after he sent them a rough demo of an idea he wrote that already had melody and some lyrics. Bono changed all of the lyrics and made it into his own and The Edge added his guitar. So it felt like a very organic collaboration. They record the song on June 2019 but since the tournament was delayed for 1 year due to pandemic, Martijn has to kept this a secret for a long time.
Martin Garrix is so excited to comeback doing shows and can’t wait to play his new songs there.
I was I could say everything that’s coming up, but there’s a lot of exciting music and projects coming. I have a year of no show which was crazy. It’s a year where I had more time with family and friends but also to be more in the studio creating, experimenting, trying out new things. I’m very excited for the show to come back so I can tested out new materials live.
Martin also talk about AREA21, his fun and feel good project with American rapper Maejor. It turns out AREA21 name came from the name of his studio in his previous apartment. His studio was located on 21st floor and they call the room AREA21. The idea come 6 years ago when Martin and Maejor were in Amsterdam and they made some songs that they can’t really as Garrix or Maejor. So they decide to release it under AREA21 name and wrote a storyline about 2 aliens crash-landed on planet earth. The album delivery date (from Martijn to the label) is on 31st July and Martijn has finished 9 from 12 songs.
