GATTÜSO, DVBBS And Alida Encourage Living In The Moment With “Leave The World Behind”
By Gattuso Team
GATTÜSO teams up with DVBBS and Norwegian singer/songwriter Alida for an upbeat, dance-worthy single – “Leave The World Behind.” Opening with soulful vocals as Alida belts out lyrics that inspire listeners to live in and appreciate the present moment, DVBBS and GATTÜSO phase in a groovy downtempo bassline that leaves room for the track’s soaring melodies to shine through. “Leave The World Behind” follows DVBBS’ recent single “Losing Sleep” with Powfu, as well as “Girl Next Door” with SK8 and Wiz Khalifa, and teases the Canadian duo’s forthcoming studio album. NYC-based artist GATTÜSO worked earlier with the likes of Steve Aoki, R3HAB, Laidback Luke and released on Armada, CYB3RPVNK, Enhanced, Dim Mak, Spinnin’ and more, before joining Ultra Records’ roster. Listeners may recognize Norwegian singer/songwriter Alida as the voice behind Robin Schulz’s “In Your Eyes” and “One More Time.”
“Proud to be a part of this powerhouse release. The blend of musical taste goes deep through this record, and we can’t wait for people to hear it in all different parts of the world.” – DVBBS
“Songs often take a long time to come together and I feel strongly that this one has been worth the wait. DVBBS and I started sending each other music in March of 2020. We’ve been looking for the right song to work on for almost 18 months. I have watched Alida grow over the last four years, and in the last year I have continued to be blown away with her vocals and songwriting. I really love collabs like this because it puts everyone’s music in front of new fans and brings a lot of energy to the release and I believe this is a big one. This song made its way from Norway, to NY, to LA and now it is ready to blast off… and ‘Leave The World Behind!'” – GATTÜSO

Alida is a songwriter, vocalist, and artist from Norway, now based in Los Angeles, California. Her passion for singing and creating music began at a young age. At nine years old, Alida started to sing alone in her room, recording herself with a tape recorder. While in secondary school, she decided to focus on music and began to fine-tune her pursuit. It was then when she learned the piano and began writing her own songs. Upon relocating to Los Angeles, Alida began collaborating with various producers, songwriters, and artists, including Noonie Bao, Axident, Big Taste, The Orphanage, Cheat Codes, The Monarch, Loren Gray, Rollo, and Robopop, to name a few. The Norwegian singer co-wrote and was featured on Robin Schulz’s single “In Your Eyes'” which peaked at #1 on US Dance Radio & #5 on European Radio charts. Earlier releases include features and co-writing jobs on Matoma’s “Embrace Your Life” and “Home Now” by Yves V. Alida is an extremely versatile topliner and, with strength in lyric, melody, and concept, can pen records wholly on her own with ease, and she is only getting started.
