Gryffin commemorates a year of ‘Gravity’ with choice group of album VIPs, orchestral versions on deluxe re-issue
A full calendar turn later and Gryffin‘s freshman album still certifiably rings as seamlessly as it did upon its initial delivery in October 2019. In a commemorative one-year anniversary celebration of Gravity, Gryffin has decided to repackage the original front-to-back masterpiece in a deluxe edition, tacking on an additional slate of unreleased VIP versions as well as four gripping orchestral adaptations.
Complementing the LP’s prior class of 16 inclusions are seven expansions that include Gryffin’s track of the year candidate, “Cry” assisted by John Martin, as well as back-to-back revisions of “Body Back” with Maia Wright and “Hurt People” with Aloe Blacc, the latter of which was a routine member of Gryffin’s unsurpassed Gravity II live show. As promised in the deluxe release’s original announcement, Gryffin recruited critically acclaimed film composer Max Aruj, who served as The Lego Batman Movie‘s score producer and worked extensively under Hans Zimmer, for guidance on four cinematic and otherworldly adaptations of “All You Need To Know,” “Body Back,” “If I Left the World,” and “Baggage” with Aluna to round out the ultimate 23-song Gravity canon.
