Denver-based artist Nick Miller, known professionally as ILLENIUM, shares a new single entitled “Pray” featuring Kameron Alexander.
Hastening the stratospheric momentum surrounding him, the song marks his second original record of 2019 and follows the announcement he will headline both Madison Square Garden (September 21) and Red Rocks Amphitheater (October 11-12) in the fall. Given the demand, a third Red Rocks Amphitheater show has been added the day before on October 10. “Pray” also arrives hot on the heels of the buzzing single “Crashing” [feat. Bahari], which gathered 16 million-plus total streams and counting thus far.
“Pray” highlights ILLENIUM’S eloquent songcraft and boundary-breaking ambition. He architects yet another immersive soundscape punctuated by airy guitars, brass transmissions, orchestral beats, and a cathedral-size drop. This musical bedrock underscores an emotionally charged and pensive vocal performance by Alexander whose robust delivery captivates on the confessional chorus, “So, just pray for me.” It also highlights the impressive interplay between ILLENIUM and Alexander, who brings a wide swath of experience working with everyone from Frank Ocean to Jess Glynne to the table. Be on the lookout for an equally entrancing visual very soon.
ILLENIUM creates immersive emotional experiences, displaying an adeptness for crafting aural arrangements that vary in style, beauty, complexity, and depth. With two full-length albums to his credit and sundry singles and remixes, he has surpassed the one billion stream mark across his discography.
His debut album, Ashes, was released to critical acclaim in early 2016. Awake followed in 2017 and hit #1 on in the iTunes Electronic Dance Charts in 12 countries. Named one of the “10 Best Dance/Electronic Albums of 2017” by Billboard, it included such singles as “Feel Good” (with Gryffin featuring Daya) and “Crawl Outta Love.”
ILLENIUM’s Awake Live headline tour captivated audiences across the country, and sold out such renowned venues as The Shrine, Terminal 5, Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, Aragon Ballroom, and Red Rocks. His remix of Flume’s “Say It” earned him an Electronic Music Award for “Best Remix” in 2017. ILLENIUM’s recent collaborations include “Don’t Give Up On Me” with Kill The Noise ft. Mako and “Gold (Stupid Love)” with Excision ft. Shallows.
