Still in the swing of celebration from last week’s releases, we’re taking a look at R3HAB, Frank Walker and Clara Mae’s new track “More Than OK,” out now on Big Beat Records/ CYB3RPVNK. As R3HAB’s second joint tune with Frank Walker, this is also the first collaboration he’s made with songstress Clara Mae. Walker enlisted R3HAB’s talents in 2018 for an official remix of his “Heartbreak Back,” which went gold in Canada. Each of the three distinguished collaborators shares their thoughts below in an effort to help convey the story of “More Than OK.”
Along with the dreamy song is a vibey music video that packs in stunning vocals and neon lights to share the story about a couple losing the magic in their relationship. The smoky and vibrant color schemes intermix with dark, more emotive scenes to give a beautiful balance of hope and heartache.
“I’ve been a fan of Clara Mae’s voice for quite a while, and when I got the chance to work with her, I didn’t hesitate one minute. ‘More Than OK’ is a cool vibey song with great vocals, including a message everyone can relate to, and a perfect way to kick off the new decade.” – R3HAB
“‘More Than OK’ is a reminder to never settle for less than what you want in life and in love. You want every day to feel special, and love like every day is your last. Working on this record with R3HAB and Frank Walker has been so much fun. I love the vibe they brought to the track. Shooting the video was amazing. It was a real challenge doing underwater scenes but also an incredible experience, and we had lots of fun together. So happy with how it all turned out, and Mario, the director, made the video look so beautiful!” – Clara Mae
“I’ve been a huge fan of R3HAB since I first started producing music and am lucky to call him a good friend as well. Around a year ago I reached out about getting him to remix my single ‘Heartbreak Back,’ which went gold in Canada, so I’m super fired up that we finally found the right record for us to collab on. Clara Mae is unbelievably talented, and her voice on ‘More Than OK’ really made this one special!” – Frank Walker
A leader in the realm of modern electronic music, R3HAB has been appropriately referred to as the “future of the craft” by worldwide presences such as Billboard and Forbes. Currently standing at number 14 on DJ Mag’s Top 100 of 2019, he experienced arguably his best year as he celebrated his biggest record to date (“All Around The World”) going gold and platinum in 8 different countries. His tour circuit has taken him to every city, club and festival you can dream up, and he’s done it all without the backing of a traditional record label.
A native Swede, Clara Mae has gained momentum through her innate singing/songwriting skills, as well as through her study of jazz vocals and piano. She’s co-written beside industry greats like Tiesto and David Guetta, and partnered with Martin Jensen and KREAM for chart-topping hits. Frank Walker has remained destined for great things as well, climbing up the big-time ranks in 2018, 2019, and now 2020. Signing a shiny new record deal with Universal Music and supporting Kygo on his worldwide ‘Kids In Love’ tour have been a couple recent highlights as he continues to appear on more and more festival mainstages, Spotify playlists, and rising artist charts.
