ILLENIUM revealed earlier this week that his fifth album, the self-titled ILLENIUM, will be released in April. It wasn’t long before he released his second song, “Luv Me A Little,” with Nina Nesbitt. After stating that he is returning to his “original artistic objectives” with this album, “Luv Me A Little” has undeniably the old ILLENIUM feel, complete with melodic vocals, a melodic bass sound, and a stronger second drop.
My fifth album titled “ILLENIUM” is coming 4/28/23!!!! To me, a self titled album is the core sound of who I am. 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. pic.twitter.com/84Jbcl8izY
