“The Core Sound of Who I Am”: ILLENIUM Reveals Fifth Album and World Tour
The reveal of the album came with the release of a new single, "Luv Me A Little," a soaring collaboration with Nina Nesbitt.
Illenials, strap in.
Fresh off his first-ever Grammy nomination for his last album, ILLENIUM is doubling down by releasing his fifth LP in 2023. He took to social media today to reveal his upcoming self-titled album, ILLENIUM, which is due out on April 28th. Fans can pre-save the record now.
"To me, a self titled album is the core sound of who I am," ILLENIUM wrote. "I see this album and it’s story as a prequel to the Trilogy, where I get to explore my original musical inspirations and blend something that truly feels fresh."
The "Trilogy" refers to ILLENIUM's early, career-defining work, a triptych of albums that began with 2016's Ashes. His scintillating fourth album, Fallen Embers, effectively marked the end of an era for the dance music superstar, who bid adieu by way of a massive "Trilogy" stadium show in Las Vegas.
ILLENIUM also revealed a world tour, which will feature a full band and kick off at the Gorge Amphitheatre in May. The pre-sale for 'ILLENIUM Live" starts on Tuesday, January 24th at 10am local time here.
The reveal of ILLENIUM came with the release of a new single, "Luv Me A Little," a collaboration with Nina Nesbitt. Longtime diehards of the chart-topping producer will resonate with the track thanks to its melancholic chords and soaring drop, which have become signatures of the ILLENIUM sound.
