LOS ANGELES, April 16, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- ZXL Music, Inc. and The Grimmie Family announce a new posthumous release by late singer Christina Grimmie on Friday, April 16, 2021. The never-released song, Back To Life, was written by Grimmie in 2015 and is the first of a series of releases featuring collaborations with award-winning DJs in dance music. The first release on April 16 features Platinum ®GRAMMY Award-winning songwriter, DJ, and producer Dave Audé, with an unprecedented 132 number one remixes on the Billboard Dance Club Songs Chart. Audé has garnered a reputation in the industry as a master producer and remixer, collaborating with acclaimed artists such as Beyoncé, Bruno Mars, Selena Gomez, and Lady Gaga.
Albert "Bud" Grimmie, Christina Grimmie's father, stated, "We're excited to collaborate with Dave Audé on this remix project considering his impressive music career. Back To Life was written by Christina in 2015, and it seems like a timely anthem for Spring, and the reopening of our country following the global pandemic." The remix project launches with a unique reverse-release strategy, with all remixes releasing sequentially over the next 45 days, culminating with the original version's release. Grimmie's brother, Marcus Grimmie, added, "As a song, Back To Life strongly represents the power of Christina's 'FRANDS,' (a term of endearment for her fans, whom she considered friends). The fans are keeping Christina's legacy alive and growing. We couldn't do any of this without them and their support." Proceeds from the project benefit the Christina Grimmie Foundation.
The schedule of future releases for Back To Life is as follows:
April 16, 2021: Dave Audé Remix
May 7, 2021: DJ Strobe VIP Club Remix
May 21, 2021: Mike Cruz Remix
