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.


Following three previous singles, "Beautiful Nothing," "Last Forever" and “In The Cold," the EDM.com Class of 2021 star continues his musical exploration of self-love and confidence with "My Own Advice."

It's the last single before his highly anticipated third studio album, wherein audiences can expect Black to deliver tracks that resonate not only with the ears, but also with the heart. Black recently revealed that the album was complete, but has not yet announced a release date at the time of writing.

Black will also be taking his third album on tour, "The Nature of Hope," which starts in February 2024. Tickets go on sale Friday, October 20th at 10am PST.
