The next chapter of the phoenix has officially begun as Illenium has released his highly anticipated 4th studio album, “Fallen Embers.” This project follows after the first three widely successful albums of Illenium’s discography “Ashes,” “Awake” and “Ascend,” and is the next story in his music tenure. The album consists of 14 tracks with 20 featured artists. Some songs have already gained popularity by being released as singles. However, many of the tracks will be listened to for the first time.
The title “Fallen Embers” resembles a new phase in the bass producer’s life. As the first three albums represent the rise, growth and rebirth in the phoenix’s (Illenium’s) journey, it can also relate to the listener’s journey. This 4th album resembles the healing powers that the phoenix possesses in what creates a brand new phase.
“Fallen Embers is just looking at the journey of a phoenix ascending. The phoenix is fire and what that creates is embers. I just thought it was so cool to give those healing powers, the embers themselves, a kind of mystical in its own light. It just doesn’t have to be about the phoenix but what about it leaves behind. Whether the phoenix falls or dies, you take the fallen embers of that event and you learn and heal through that.” – Illenium, “Fallen Embers” Trailer
