Illenium & Jon Bellion New Collaborative Single “Good Things Fall Apart”

Illenium reveals a blockbuster new collaborative single with Jon Bellion today. Breaking creative ground and knocking down genre boundaries, this marks the very first collaboration between these two powerhouses. An enthralling apocalypse-esque lyric video accompanies the track release today.

On the track, Illenium, envisions a sonic backdrop if glitchy beats, delicate acoustic guitar, and ethereal percussion, and Bellion’s dynamic voice leaps from intimate verses towards a delightfully dizzy crescendo. The star channels nostalgic 90’s pop punk and turn of the century emo on his catchy and confessional chorus, Coming to terms with a broken heart. I guess that sometimes good things fall apart. It’s unlikely anything either artist has released thus far. Most importantly Good Things Fall Apart has all the makings of a crossover anthem perfect for summer.

The song comes in hot on the heels of two explosive anthems from ILLENIUM. To date, his single Crashing featuring Bahari has amassed nearly 27 million total streams. Meanwhile, the follow-up, Pray featuring Kameron Alexander soundtracked a new HBO documentary. Recently the Pray remix packaged engendered enthusiastic critical acclaim. Dancing Astronaut placed it on an NMF Roundup. YourEDM praised it, as intensely varied, while RunTheTrap proclaimed it, a phenomenal remix pack.

Stay tuned for the cinematic music video for Good Things Fall Apart will debut very soon.

Also, be sure to catch ILLENIUM on tour. He will perform a DJ set at Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas on Sunday, May 19. He’s set to touch down Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, continue his Las Vegas residency at Hakkasan, and headline bothMadison Square Garden (September 21) and Red Rocks Amphitheater (October 10, 11, 12) in the fall.

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 Praising the album as a gorgeous collection of future bass, piercing vocals, and barefaced lyrics, Dancing Astronaut said, While it might seem premature to call an album a masterpiece, no other title would fit Awake so well Billboard observed, The Phoenix is ILLENIUM ‘s mascot, and Awake is the emergent moment of that story.
Bellion got his start with a series of mixtapes featuring his original songs, all recorded in his parents’ basement. He built a remarkable following by sharing his music directly with listeners, giving away more than 200,000 free downloads of 2014’s The Definition, and playing live for fans on two sold-out national tours.

Denver-based artist Nick Miller, known professionally as Illenium, has signed to Astralwerks and makes his debut on the renowned dance label with the highly personal single Take You Down. After hearing from many fans about how his music has gotten them through dark periods, he felt compelled to share how music saved his life, too, following a heroin overdose six years ago.

In a letter to fans, posted HERE, Illenium explains, “Take You Down is about my struggles with addiction and what it can do to families and loved ones. It’s more specifically about my mom, and how no matter what, she never gave up on me. To anyone struggling like I did, not just with addiction but anything in life, I hope you guys can find peace in your struggles and know that anything can be overcome. I’ve been clean since that overdose and I owe that to finding my passion and being surrounded by the most loving people I could ever ask for.
