Marshmello has released a new sign language music video for his song, 'You Can Cry', featuring Juicy J and James Arthur.

The EDM DJ-producer signs in American Sign Language (ASL) throughout the video. 

He released the video a few days before his appearance at the 2018 Electric Forest Festival in Michigan, USA, this past weekend.

The festival is known for its use of sign language professionals to interpret lyrics and music for the hearing-impaired.

Marshmello's fans say he has inspired them to learn sign language as well.

"This makes me appreciate my hearing because those who are deaf might be able to understand what the lyrics read, but they’re unable to sense the beauty of the song’s sound and I want to learn sign language now," one fan wrote on YouTube.

Marshmello's latest hit, 'Friends' featuring Anne-Marie, is currently at number 22 on the Coca-Cola Top 40.
