Illenials, strap in.
Fresh off his first-ever Grammy nomination for his last album, ILLENIUM is doubling down by releasing his fifth LP in 2023. He took to social media today to reveal his upcoming self-titled album, ILLENIUM, which is due out on April 28th. Fans can pre-save the record now.
"To me, a self titled album is the core sound of who I am," ILLENIUM wrote. "I see this album and it’s story as a prequel to the Trilogy, where I get to explore my original musical inspirations and blend something that truly feels fresh."

The "Trilogy" refers to ILLENIUM's early, career-defining work, a triptych of albums that began with 2016's Ashes. His scintillating fourth album, Fallen Embers, effectively marked the end of an era for the dance music superstar, who bid adieu by way of a massive "Trilogy" stadium show in Las Vegas.
ILLENIUM also revealed a world tour, which will feature a full band and kick off at the Gorge Amphitheatre in May. The pre-sale for 'ILLENIUM Live" starts on Tuesday, January 24th at 10am local time here.
Headlined by Âme and Dixon, the concert is one of the only large-scale electronic music events in L.A. to take place on the beach.

The inaugural show will also feature DJ sets from Nora En Pure and Mark Knight, among others.
