Maintaining unstoppable momentum, ILLENIUM releases a brand-new track entitled “Blood” featuring Foy Vance today.
It paves a path for the imminent arrival of his third full-length studio album, ASCEND, on August 16 via Virgin EMI. Continuing an ethereal, apocalyptic aesthetic, ILLENIUM shares the accompanying lyric video for “Blood,” which can be viewed below.
“Blood” sends a message to his devout and diehard fan base worldwide. Its distillation of dubstep dissonance and soulful vocal transmissions from critically acclaimed Irish troubadour Foy Vance encapsulates ILLENIUM’s intriguing and inimitable alchemy as a producer. Thematically, the track sends an assuring and comforting reminder to fans: “We’re all together. We cope by having a community. We’re blood,” he affirms.
Additionally, he revealed the powerhouse tracklisting for ASCEND, including stunning collaborations such as “In Your Arms” ft. X Ambassadors, “Gorgeous” ft. Bipolar Sunshine with Blanke, and “Takeaway” ft. Lennon Stella with The Chainsmokers.
