Serving as the latest single leading up to the release of his fourth album, Fallen Embers, “Sideways” is a flawless melodic bass beauty that is guaranteed to be an immediate fan-favorite amongst the “Illenial” community as well as dubstep fans who enjoy the melodic stuff.
Sharing the message behind the song, Valerie Broussard states, “‘Sideways’ was written as an ode to a friend who was struggling with her mental health during Covid lockdown. Having struggled similarly in my own life, I wanted her to know I would always be there for her, even when it felt like the world was falling apart.”
Illenium adds “I loved working with Valerie and Nurko on this track. The vocal has so much emotion and musically we created a song with an almost jubilant air. I wanted it to be a celebration of making it through this crazy year all of us just had.”
“We each inspired one another during the creative process”, says Nurko. “This has been a really rough year for everyone, but no matter how tough it is, it’s good to have somebody to stick with you through it all, no matter what.”
Turn those speakers up and indulge in Illenium’s new colossal collaboration “Sideways” below.
