Lukas Graham and G-Eazy have teamed up on the single “Share that Love.” The song was produced by long-term producer Rissi (Kygo, Julia Mi
“I grew up in a neighbourhood where if you had something, you shared it. The place is called Christiania. It’s an old army base that got squatted in 1971. The community operates from the concept that nobody owns their house and that you can do what you want, as long as you don’t inhibit others from doing what they want. For all the upsides to living in Christiania, there was also trouble with the police, or issues with gangs in the city.
I’ve tried to embody all of that in this song, and when I listen to it I’m reminded of some of the ways our community has really come together, like all the great parties we’ve thrown, or the huge protests where we’ve marched against the government threatening to evict us from Christiania. In these troubling times, I guess it is more important than ever to share what we have, especially your love.”
The song’s release is song is accompanied by a time-lapsed lyric video created by acclaimed Copenhagen street artist Rasmus Balstrøm, who painted a massive ‘Share That Love’ mural at a landmark music venue in Lukas Graham’s hometown of Christiania, Denmark.
Lukas made his global debut with his 2016 self-titled album. The track “7 Years” went on to spend five weeks in the #1 spot on the UK’s Official Singles Chart, as well as amassed over 3 billion streams at Spotify and three Grammy nominations. The song ended up becoming the biggest selling single by a debut artist in 2016.
