GATTÜSO and VIOLET DAYS, “Save Me”
After coming off a highly successful 2020 with “Bring That Back” (with vocalist Nadia Gattas and fellow producers Asketa & Natan Chaim) and a remix of Petey Martin & Lauren Daigle’s “Come Back Home”, GATTÜSO returns with possibly his most dance radio-friendly release to date, “Save Me”, co-written with Swedish vocalist Violet Days and others. It’s also GATTÜSO’s second release for Ultra Records. The flow between GATTÜSO and Violet Days is pretty seamless. His production lets you get lost in the committed lyrics, which sing about the protagonist getting too deep into a relationship that isn’t working, hoping that the other person will see the light, but then boldly having to make the decision to save herself from needless pain before it gets worse. The heavy subject matter is offset by a brisk uptempo melody that is a partner to the protagonist’s salvation. Violet Days is more often known as songwriter Lina Hansson, but you’ve heard her memorable voice gracing her own solo hits (“Your Girl”) as well as those of others (Shaun Frank’s “Addicted”). “Save Me” brings us a wonderful collaboration that is worth repeating.
