ILLENIUM taps Teddy Swims for emotive single, ‘All That Really Matters’

Teddy Swims‘ sublime vocals on ILLENIUM‘s newest single “All That Really Matters” make for the perfect match between the Atlanta-based singer and Dancing Astronaut‘s Artist of the Year in 2021. The new single was originally debuted during ILLENIUM’s brace of dates at Washington’s Gorge Amphitheatre. Just a few weeks later, the Fallen Embers producer would bring out Teddy Swims during his performance at Bonnaroo where he finished his set with what is now his newest single. With “All That Really Matters,” ILLENIUM continues to prove that in service of his fans he’ll continue to try new things as his catalog grows. While certainly one of melodic bass’ foremost torch bearers, as we saw on Fallen Embers Deluxe, the Chicago-born producer is more than willing to dabble in other styles. “All That Really Matters” is a love song at heart. Backed by Teddy Swims tear-inducing vocals, ILLENIUM lays down a track that, in a word, is simply beautiful. It’s a euphoric dance-pop track along the lines of past records like “Beautiful Creatures,” “In Your Arms”, and more recently “Don’t Let Me Let Go.” The back-and-forth from heavy melodic bass and dubstep to pop-forward dance tracks is a double edged sword that few are able to wield with such success.ILLENIUM is fresh off the announcement of his second-ever TRILOGY show. The inaugural 2021 edition was held during Independence Day weekend in Las Vegas where the Raiders’ Allegiant Stadium played host to the highest attended single headliner dance music event ever in the United States. The second edition of TRILOGY is set for June, 2023 and will be land at the Denver Broncos’ Empower Field at Mile High. Just like last year, he will once again be playing three sets: an Ashes/Awake set, an Ascend/Fallen Embers set, and the debut of a brand new live show to close things out. With his last three albums coming two years apart and TRILOGY:COLORADO penned in for approximately two years from Fallen Embers, fans have rightfully wondered if a new album could be on the way. While we wait and see what else ILLENIUM has up his sleeve, enjoy his latest single “All That Really Matters” with Teddy Swims below.Featured image: RukesTags: , , , , , ,
