Calvin Harris + Alesso + Hurts = Festival Anthem

If you're like me, you saw the title of the song below and immediately thought, "welp, that's probably going to be (fill in upcoming festival name) anthem." After listening to the track a few times, I gotta admit, it managed to live up to expectations. Take this with a grain of salt, but I think Hurts' vocals make the track more memorable than the synth chord progression. In other words, I can see the beat getting old real quickly once radio gets a hold of it, but the song has a chance to live a decent shelf life because of the vocals. The moral of the story is Calvin Harris and Alesso make great music, but I'd argue that they both individually make better tracks than what you'll hear below, which is more of an indication o. To me that's more of a compliment than a slight, but take it how you will and bang this one out for a hot minute before the masses get a hold of it via iTunes October 11th...
