Bastille teams up with Norwegian duo Seeb for new track, "Grip" 

ABC/Randy HolmesBastille has another collaboration for you. Following their smash hit "Happier," with Marshmello, the "Pompeii" artists have teamed up with Norwegian production duo Seeb for a new song called "Grip," which you can download now via digital outlets.

If you're a longtime Bastille fan, you might know that the band has been working on "Grip" for quite some time. They've performed the song live, but it's never been officially released until now.

"Seeb turned our big, messy guitar song into something new and completely different, but it still feels wholly in keeping with the escapist theme of the song: the euphoria and horrors of a late, late night," frontman Dan Smith says of the collaboration.

"When the drop happens it's like you get sucked back into the weirdness of the night or like a door's been opened into the clubby world of Seeb," he continues. "Their production takes it somewhere we never would have expected."

"Grip" will be included on the upcoming fourth edition of Bastille's ongoing Other People's Heartache mixtape series, which will be released on Friday.

Bastille has also been working on a new album, the follow-up to 2016's Wild World. It's titled Doom Days, and is due out in 2019.
