Illenium signals his next album is in the works
Before the pandemic hit, Illenium (real name Nick Miller) was touring non-stop for his third studio album, Ascend, and selling out massive venues like Red Rocks and Madison Square Garden along the way. Now that the Denver-based future bass star has had a chance to regroup and recoup from constant life on the road, he has revealed to his fanbase that much of his time is focused on creating with 12-hour workdays in the studio. With that, Illenium further hinted that a new album is in the works in one single tweet. Cue the high-pitched “sad boy” shrills.
Now anyone knows that an album cover photo shot is usually along the final steps of releasing any body of work. Illenium further shared why things have been quiet on the production front, “Sorry if I haven’t been 100% there for you guys this past year. When the pandemic first hit I was so exhausted from touring nonstop. Being in the studio for 12 hour days was something I missed so much. Been grinding hard on this next body of work. Can’t wait to share it!!”
The stakes are certainly high for Illenium as the forthcoming project will mark his first full-length studio album signed to 12Tone Music. However, if his third studio album is any indication, fans are going to love whatever Miller pulls out of his audio tool belt. Illenium hasn’t been fully out of the spotlight though, with his latest collaboration “with Dabin and Lights, “Hearts on Fire,” stirring crowds, along with four new remixes of “Paper Thin.”
