Happier is a 2018 song by American producer Marshmello and British band Bastille. The song's original writer Dan Smith had intended it to be for Justin Bieber before deciding to keep it for his own band Bastille. They sent the song to Marshmello, who "managed to find some euphoria" despite the darkness of the lyrics.

This isn't the first Bastille song to feature sad lyrics over upbeat music - their breakthrough single Pompeii (2013) had a similar combination.
