Dillon Francis may be nursing dreams of Saturday Night Live stardom, but even if that doesn't work out the dancefloor funnyman has a music career to fall back on.

The Los Angeles-based producer and DJ is back with a reminder of his beatmaking prowess that's called "Anywhere." But given how much its downtempo dance-pop sounds feel like the stuff that's dominating Top 40 radio right now, you might soon count on hearing it "Everywhere." Featuring vocals from South London singer Will Heard, who has previously been turned up on tracks by crossover artists such as Tourist, Kygo, and Rudimental, it's a feel-good track that's grabbed onto the last leg of summer and is holding on tight.

Though much of Francis's work has been geared toward getting loose, fans heard some of the first steps toward "Anywhere" back in 2013 when he teamed up with Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs for the more ambient indie-dance track "Without You." On last year's This Mixtape is Fire, he collaborated with tropical house producer Kygo and funk lords Chromeo on "Coming Over" and "Lies," respectively.

Listen to "Anywhere" right here.
