Gareth Emery Releases Album '100 Reasons To Live'

Posted at April 4th, 2016 | by Supreet.cheema | in

Gareth Emery finally released his much-awaited album ‘100 Reasons To Live‘ and the album now sits at #1 spot on iTunes Dance Chart. This third Studio album released by Garuda and Armada Music is described as an “album of celebration and all-round good vibes” by the English DJ/producer himself. The album features some well known names from different genres including Emery’s long-term collaborator and friend Christina Novelli, the famed X Factor American duo Alex & Sierra, U.K. pop-rockers Lawson among others.

Gareth Emery shared a heartwarming story behind the title ‘100 Reasons To Live’ via Facebook.

Strange but true fact: about two years ago, I was fucking miserable.

I didn’t have any reason to be. I was reasonably successful, in a job that I loved, was married to a beautiful wife, lived in an amazing house, had no recent major tragedy in my life, or any of the other things that make people unhappy, yet I was pretty much constantly annoyed.

Why? Because a festival I wanted to play wouldn’t book me. Because I wanted to stay in a suite, but the promoter would only book me a standard room. Because my brand-new Lamborghini was going to take nine months to be delivered from the factory, when I wanted it in six.

You probably hate me reading that. I don’t blame you. Reading this back, I hate me, too.

However, there is a depressing trend that I have noticed amongst famous + successful DJs: just how many of them are really fucking unhappy. They’re traveling the world, living a lifelong dream that took decades of work to accomplish, and yet they’re constantly pissed because they were given Moet instead of Cristal, or because one person on social media said their new record sucked. Boo fucking hoo. Bring out the violins.

Short story long, that was how 100 Reasons To Live got its name.

I saw myself turning into an archetypal miserable DJ and decided that was not the person I wanted to be.

I figured out that happiness and a love of life doesn’t come from career success or material wealth; in fact, some of the happiest people I knew were, on paper, some of the less successful.

Now, I’m not saying “don’t make money” or “don’t be successful”. I happen to be a fan of both. But I learned that those things alone don’t make me happy.

What does make me happy? Many things. Sunshine. Walking outside. Beers at the pub with friends. Taking my daughter to music class. Lazy Sundays. Sunsets. Swimming.

Turning off my phone, logging out of emails, getting off the social media hamster wheel, and engaging the world around me – something which I’d totally lost the ability to do.

In short, I rediscovered what made me happy, or in other words, figured out my ‘Reasons To Live’, and then stuck ‘100’ in the front for no other reason than it sounded better.

It’s out today, by the way.

Much love
