Grammy-nominated French DJ and producer DJ Snake releases a new song “Broken Summer” on Geffen Records via all digital retailers. The song encapsulates the feelings of the end of the summer, fading tender memories of summer romance as the world heads into fall. A slight change of tempo for the producer, he recorded the song in the summer completing it recently in a studio in Paris and features Austin based singer and songwriter Max Frost. After it was finished, Snake immediately wanted to drop it for his fans worldwide.
In September, DJ Snake released his single, “A Different Way,” featuring Lauv. The track peaked at No. 1 on Shazam’s Future Hits chart and has racked up over 27 million total combined streams since its release. DJ Snake had promised more music before Christmas time.
This week DJ Snake and Lauv are to shoot the video for the their current single in Los Angeles with director Colin Tilley, who filmed his historic journey on September 6th through the streets of Paris to the roof of the Arc De Triomphe broadcast to over 3 million fans on Facebook and Instagram Live using ground breaking technology to stream seamlessly on both platforms. The extended version of the piece is set to be released in November.
DJ Snake has been nominated for an American Music Award for Favorite Artist in Electronic Dance Music. The awards will be handed out live on Sunday, November 19th, at 8/7c on ABC.
