We’re slowly inching forward toward the release of ILLENIUM’s fifth studio album, the self-titled ILLENIUM. Over the years, we’ve seen his brilliant album trilogy captivate fans across the world, culminating in “epilogue,” Fallen Embers, released in 2021. We’re now entering a new era of ILLENIUM, yet the Denver artist still wants there to be a certain level of nostalgia and familiarity with his new work for long-time fans.
His new single out today, “Insanity” with American Teeth, carries a theme of self-sabotage within the lyrics. It’s a topic, by roundabout means, that ILLENIUM has revisited fairly often in his work.
“Everything about this song just feels so anthemic to me,” ILLENIUM says of the latest tantalizing taste of his upcoming fifth album, ILLENIUM. “Elijah sounds absolutely epic and killed his performance on this record. It feels so nostalgic and I can’t get it out of my head.” American Teeth’s Elijah Noll is similarly proud of the song, which he describes as “a journey through the dangers of living life on the edge.” For him, it’s about “getting lost in a reckless lifestyle and the inevitable chaos that ensues when trying to navigate a relationship.”
“Insanity” follows previously released album singles “From The Ashes,” “Luv Me A Little,” “Worst Day,” “Shivering,” and “All That Really Matters.” Listen below.
