A departure from their previous collaboration, "Superhero," a drum & bass track released on the deluxe edition of ILLENIUM'salbum in 2021, "My Own Advice" marks a return to the longtime friends' signature sounds.

All said and done, the song is a skillful blend of their distinct styles. ILLENIUM's knack for crafting soaring melodies and high-energy moments finds its place alongside Black's ethereal, introspective touches. Take a listen below.
