Ekali and Illenium are at the forefront of EDM. It was only a matter of time before they graced the world with a collaboration. It’s been teased in sets and many videos circulated online fueling the flames and anticipation for the release. Fortunately, the wait is over. “Hard To Say Goodbye” is now streaming in all its glory.
ILLENIUM has had a massive year in 2019, especially due to his album ‘ASCEND’ standing out to both fans and critics. Ekali is set to have an equally impactful 2020, with an album of his own. ‘Hard To Say Goodbye’ is just one of the many special records that will make up his debut album.
Speaking of the single, it is a brilliant display of each other’s ‘softer’ styles. We all know Ekali and ILLENIUM can throw down some hard-hitting tracks, however in this instance, they take the lighter approach. With stand out vocals by Chloe Angelides, she conveys passionately the title throughout the track. The drop is a fresh electronic piece that is exactly what you would expect from this duo collaborating.
If streaming isn’t enough, Ekali recently announced his forthcoming “A World Away” Tour. It will see Ekali bring his incendiary live performances across North America. Dates and tickets can be found here.
