ILLENIUM certainly knows a good up-and-comer when he sees one rising through the ranks. The melodic maven proves as much on his latest single, “All That Really Matters,” an emotional team-up with genre-blurring vocalist Teddy Swims. Now for anyone who hasn’t registered Teddy Swims on their talent radar you really need to get it together. There’s no better way to put it. On the brand new collab, ILLENIUM delivers some sorely needed hope while continuing to cement himself as a visionary producer and a keen collaborator.
Fans who watched ILLENIUM’s electrifying Bonnaroo set last month were treated to a special live preview of “All That Really Matters” — complete with a guest appearance from Swims. “This song means so much to me,” ILLENIUM says of the collaboration. “With all that’s going on in the world, it’s great to just take a step back and find what really matters. Teddy’s voice and performance take it to the next level.”
That sentiment is echoed by Swims. “This song is just a great reminder of what truly matters,” the Atlanta, GA native says.
“With the world the way it is currently it’s easy to get caught up in all the distractions. The only thing that really matters is love. I’ve always been a fan of ILLENIUM so it’s an honor to do a song with him!”-Teddy Swims
Teddy Swims is becoming a powerhouse in his own right. The singer/songwriter’s career skyrocketed in 2019 through his YouTube covers, which garnered hundreds of millions of views, before signing with Warner Records and stealing fans’ hearts with his original songs. Following 2021’s Unlearning EP and 2022’s Tough Love EP, as well as recent features on Meghan Trainor’s new single “Bad For Me” and MK, BURNS’ “Better,” he will soon embark on his sold-out Australia/New Zealand tour, followed by a US Fall Tour — find tour dates HERE.
“All That Really Matters” follows FALLEN EMBERS (Remixes), a remix companion to ILLENIUM’s 2021 LP FALLEN EMBERS, which earned him a Billboard Music Award for Top Dance/Electronic Album and garnered his first Grammy nod for Best Dance/Electronic Album. ILLENIUM’s total career streams have now eclipsed over 5 billion. With “All That Really Matters” and more music on the horizon, ILLENIUM cements his status as one of dance music’s most innovative and audacious producers.
Listen to “All That Really Matters,” out now via Warner Records.
