William Black and ILLENIUM Embrace Imperfection in New Collaboration, “My Own Advice”

It's okay to be not okay sometimes. These words set the tone of "My Own Advice," the second-ever collaboration between melodic bass stars William Black and ILLENIUM.

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

Opening up with a simple guitar progression, the track weaves Alana Springsteen's spellbinding vocals before culminating in an anthemic drop. As the song progresses, it's clear that "My Own Advice" is more than just a collaboration; it's a musical dialogue between old friends who've found a way to harmoniously balance their distinct musical identities.

The result is a track that speaks to the heart, invites introspection and serves as a powerful reminder that, in a world that often demands perfection, it's okay to give yourself some grace.

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.
