2 min read

(US) Singer/songwriter/composer/producer/mixer/dj/musician Chris Malinchak announced today that he will be embarking on a 5 city US tour with shows in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Washington, DC and Brooklyn, NY following his European run.

Chris also shared this week a fresh new track entitled “Happiness” featuring MNEK, a Grammy nominated British singer-songwriter. “Happiness” features Malinchak’s signature feel-good electro beats blended with soaring melodies, complimented by MNEK’s gorgeously rich vocals. “Happiness” featuring MNEK is Chris Malinchak’s follow up to his critically-lauded single “Stranger” featuring Mikky Ekko which instantly topped the Hypemachine chart. You can watch the video for “Stranger” directed by famed lensman Mark Seliger here.

“Happiness” featuring MNEK follows the success of Malinchak’s recent singles “Stranger,” “If U Got It” and the UK No.2 hit “So Good To Me,” the latter topping 25 million views on YouTube, dominating the dance floor and radio, and moving Adele to describe it as “beautiful.” Immediacy is synonymous with Malinchak, who likes to share songs online as soon as they are finished. “I love that moment when I put up a new song, knowing it’s about to be heard for the first time,” he expresses. “I’m doing all of this because I love making music and sharing what I make.” Malinchak adds, “I’ve never looked to ‘push’ anything, but I’m always looking to share with more people.” If anything it’s the ‘pull’ factor that Malinchak is experiencing, and one that “Stranger” and his upcoming live shows will accentuate.
