M-22 and Ella Henderson team up for “Heartstrings”

M-22 and Ella Henderson have teamed up to create the new collaborative single, “Heartstrings”.

The track is the first piece of new music from the British/German house duo to arrive this year and is enhanced by the powerful vocals of British pop star Henderson.

It’s been a while, and nothing’s changed“, Henderson laments at the start of the track, later adding as it builds to a euphoric high:”You keep playing on my heart, on my heartstrings.”

“We love Ella,” M-22 said in a press release. “We’ve been friends for a long time now and have been sitting on this ‘Heartstrings’ beauty waiting for the perfect moment to release it…And here it is! The song was written on the white island of Ibiza and contains so many special and euphoric memories for us and Ella.

Henderson added: “I absolutely love the M-22 guys, they’re like family to me! Writing this song with them in Ibiza is a memory I will never forget, we had so much fun! I think we really captured the heart and essence of the island by creating a euphoric, anthemic but still classic piece of music!

The collaboration follows Henderson teamed up with Cian Ducrot last month on a revamped version of “All For Us”. The Irish singer-songwriter will support the star on his upcoming UK tour, which kicks off in October. In return, he asked the singer to help write a new verse for the track, adding love, lust and heartbreak to its themes.

M-22 is a platinum duo consisting of Matt James and Frank Sanders. They met on March 22 (hence their name) and began producing records and remixes together, as well as performing around the world – particularly in Ibiza.

With over 370 million streams of their music to date, the duo have also proven irresistible to other artists, with Matt and Frank being recruited for remix duties by a wide range of artists, from Avicii, Marshmello, Axwell & Ingrosso and Sam Feldt. to Katy Perry, Anne-Marie, Little Mix and Clean Bandit.
