Multiplatinum cross-genre phenomenon, artist, producer, and DJ ILLENIUM unveils his latest single entitled “Wouldn’t Change A Thing” [feat. THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS].
The song notably marks the first new music from legendary, record breaking band THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS in three years. Listen to “Wouldn’t Change A Thing”—HERE. Watch the Visualizer—HERE.
“Wouldn’t Change A Thing” sets the stage for the Deluxe Edition of ILLENIUM’s fourth full-length album, FALLEN EMBERS, on October 22, 2021. It will be the inaugural release under his newly minted deal with Warner Records.
The single fuses ILLENIUM’s immersive and cinematic production with a heavenly and hypnotic vocal melody from THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS frontman Jared Leto. Backed by Shannon Leto’s powerful drums, icy synths pulsate in the background before a shuddering dancefloor-ready groove takes hold. Meanwhile, Jared Leto projects the hook loud and clear, “No matter what happens, she’s a fatal attraction to me. I wouldn’t change a thing.” In the accompanying Visualizer, images of flames, rain, and sparks underline the track’s emotional intensity, bringing the words to life.
For the Deluxe Edition, ILLENIUM notably reupped, reloaded, and recharged this opus with five new songs. Among the new material, Virtual Riot expands “Blame Myself” [with Tori Kelly] with a new Remix, heightening the tension and release with an unpredictable glitchy breakdown. From the frenetic bounce of “Hurt Like This” to the guitar-laden crunch of “Superhero,” ILLENIUM presents the most complete and comprehensive vision of Fallen Embers now.
Continuing a historic run of dates this year, ILLENIUM takes over Masonic Temple Theatre in Detroit, MI as part of his latest headline tour. This leg will be highlighted by a three-night stand at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco November 24-26 and back-to-back shows at The Armory in Minneapolis, MN December 10-11.

Earlier this year, ILLENIUM performed a four-set show at The Las Vegas Raiders’ Allegiant Stadium, making him the first artist to ever perform at the venue. The first three sets at the show commemorated his previous 3 albums – Ashes, Awake, and Ascend. The night ended with a final set, bringing closure to the story of the previously mentioned albums and starting a new one with Fallen Embers. Throughout the summer, he also shined at festivals such as Lollapalooza, Breakaway Music Festival, Life Is Beautiful, and more.
Now, he illuminates electronic music brighter than ever with Fallen Embers Deluxe Edition and much more to come.
