Illy returns in 2012 with his surefire hit of a single Heard It All from upcoming third album Bring It Back. Following the success of career defining sophomore LP The Chase, fans have been anticipating the next Illy release with baited breath.
Heard It All embraces the irony of releasing something original, when everything seems to have been done before. Personable and full of conviction, in this track Illy investigates what he stands for, while aknowledging his fans for their ongoing support.
“I was having a really tough time getting inspired to write recently. I wrote this (Heard It All) in response to the feeling that I wasn’t going to be able to deliver what was expected of me. It’s pretty much about accepting the fact that the latest, or newest stuff going on, is all a product of shit that came before, and that that’s not really a bad thing.” – ILLY
With production from One Above (the man behind Hilltop Hoods’ hit single I Love It feat. Sia), the beat is clean and uplifting. The use of strings throughout gives the song a cinematic feel lifting Illy’s sincere vocals on the catchy hook. After only one week of high rotation on triple j, the track isalready in popular demand. Illy the hit machine has done it again! Illy – Heard It All is available digitally now through Obese Records.
