Survivors

Songfacts®:

  • This song was written by Chicago songwriter Ross Golan (Justin Bieber's "Take You," Lady Antebellum's "Compass") and English producer Steve Mac (The Wanted's "Glad You Came," Rixton's "Me and My Broken Heart").
  • Gomez said at the Revival listening party: "'Survivors' is an anthem. I think in general, we're just surviving every day, in our circumstances, and I feel like that's kind of my message to all of us. Kind of bringing each other up instead of tearing each other down, 'cause we're all just surviving."
