“The team at Ultra introduced me to Will (Love Harder) a few months ago and he sent me the first idea for “Cruel“. Will’s got that magic ‘hit-making’ touch and this one grabbed me right away from the first few seconds. I knew I had to put the GATTÜSO spin on it and here it is!” – GATTÜSO
“Cruel is a record fit for our times. I am super proud to have collaborated with Gattuso to bring you a record you can dance to that delivers a message.” – Love Harder
GATTÜSO performed at World On Pause Festival in May, our 3-day virtual fundraising event in support of The Recording Academy MusiCares and Feed the Children. Since breaking out into the electronic circuit in 2018, GATTÜSO has seen a plethora of accolades and accomplishments, along with more than a handful of notable original, collaborative, and remixes. He’s worked alongside Love Harder, Laidback Luke, and R3HAB on the 2020 remake of “Creep”, which was Spotify’s first-ever Mint Singles release.
