"Don't Give Up on Me Now" is the twosome's first collaboration, and follows on the heels of R3HAB's collaborations with A Touch Of Class, Icona Pop, and remixes for Sofi Tukker, Danny Ocean, P!nk, and The Chainsmokers, among others.

"Don't Give Up on Me Now" opens on vibrant guitars flowing into a compelling house groove topped by the cool, vibrant surfaces of Bergan's voice. Radiant synths ring out bright sonic textures, infusing the tune with wavering shimmers of color. A thumping kick drum and throbbing bass line blanket the rhythm in contagious dynamic pulses.

"Don't you even think 'bout giving up on me now / Don't you even think 'bout walking out of my life / Everything I do, I do it for you / I need you to stay, stay tonight / Don't give up on me now."

Cool and stylish, "Don't Give Up on Me Now" conveys magnetic energy.
