Today is a good day. Bliss n Eso have appeared from the ether and blessed us with their new single ‘Dopamine (feat. Thief)’, which premiered via triple j on Wednesday 28th September – sending fans into a frenzy.
‘Dopamine’ is the first taste of Bliss n Eso’s highly-anticipated sixth studio album (due for release in 2017) and their first output since 2013’s ARIA #1 album ‘Circus in the Sky’. ‘Dopamine’ features stunning vocals from rising Sydney artist Thief alongside some of the most candid verses ever laid on a track by the group’s two MCs, detailing some of the personal demons they’ve been battling with.
“We have been hard at work in the studio for the past couple of years working on this new album, it’s exciting to finally be releasing the first track and giving our fans something new to listen to. ‘Dopamine’ is a powerful song, it reflects that feeling of someone pulling you from the darkness and leading you back to the light. Saying no to the demons and standing strong in the belief that life is a positive and beautiful thing.” – MC Bliss
‘Dopamine’ signals the beginning of an exciting new era for one of Australia’s most beloved groups. With hundreds of thousands of albums already sold over their career to date and a powerful first single leading the way, there’s no doubt that Bliss n Eso are in for another mammoth year ahead.
Bliss n Eso will grace Australian TV screens tonight, performing ‘Dopamine’ live for the very first time, along with a medley of other hits on the NRL’s Grand Final Footy Show from 8:30pm on The Nine Network.
