Grey – Want You Back
Grey – the Los Angeles-based production duo composed of brothers Kyle and Michael Trewartha – are opening 2019 with three Grammy nominations and new single, “Want You Back” featuring young Swedish pop sensation LÉON. Known for RIAA 3x-platinum “Starving” with Hailee Steinfeld and Grammy-nominated single “The Middle” with Zedd and Maren Morris, the duo has accumulated over 3.1 billion streams combined. “Want You Back,” the group’s first single via Island Records, is out now.

“Want You Back” featuring LÉON sees Grey confidently leaping into new territory once more. A rush of piano, echoing beats, and rich orchestration creates an inimitable and idiosyncratic soundscape. “Want You Back,” Michael sums up, “really shows the scope of our sound for the first time. We were listening to LÉON a lot and thought she would fit perfectly. She ultimately did. Musically, we want to bring something weird and unique to pop. This song does that. It all felt meant to be.”
Since emerging in L.A. circa 2014, the multi-platinum duo Grey has upended expectations and reimagined the musical landscape, diving beyond the superficial surface and emerging with a signature style and sound of their own. They construct lush, layered, lively pop by way of organic instrumentation, cinematic ambition, and a hint of neon dance-floor sheen. Grey’s remixes over the years for the likes of Mike Posner, Kaskade, Jack Ü, Zedd, Selena Gomez, Troye Sivan, Ariana Grande and others cemented their reputation across the electronic dance music landscape.
After releasing “Crown” with Camila Cabello in 2017 for NETFLIX’s Bright original motion picture soundtrack, “I Miss You” featuring fellow L.A. dance-pop trio Bahari, and their Chameleon EP, the stage was set for Grey’s next conquest in 2018. “The Middle” rose to #1 in the U.S. at Top 40 Radio and HOT AC, hit #5 on the Billboard Hot 100, was A-listed at BBC Radio 1, and earned a Top 10 Spotify Streaming chart spot while “Starving” turned into a worldwide phenom, charting multi-platinum in over two dozen territories
In addition to touring with Zedd on his 20 date North American ‘Echo Tour,’ Grey has turned heads with their high fashion runway-ready style and neo-futuristic aesthetic in performance everywhere from Electric Zoo to The GRAMMY® Awards, The Billboard Music Awards, Ellen, and beyond.Tweet
