The 12-track album has easily been one of the most anticipated electronic music releases of the year, and upon first listen, it’s clear that the hype was warranted. Opening with the electro-bounce party anthem All That and ending with the sugar-sweet dance-pop ballad Hurricane, Dillon takes his listeners on a diverse and energetic journey through a series of genres and emotional highs.
In between festival anthems like Set Me Free, Make It Bounce, and I Can’t Take It, there’s also a healthy smattering of off-the-wall tracks, including indie dance number Drunk All The Time and Not Butter, a techno hybrid that sounds like something straight from the twisted mind of Gesaffelstein. The one constant throughout the album is Dillon’s unconquerable exuberance and sense of fun–it’s a silly, slamming album, and exactly what we wanted (and needed).
You can pick up the full album on iTunes here, and don’t miss the new video for When We Were Young, his collab with Sultan + Ned Shepard and The Chain Gang Of 1974, at the bottom. Dillon is set to kick off a Friends Rule North American tour in support of the album in November. Tickets for the tour are available now on Dillon’s website.
