Dillon Francis announced the release of a brand-new single titled, “Be Somebody” (feat. Evie Irie), which is available to stream/download via Casablanca Records here.
“Be Somebody” showcases Francis’s production ability as he delivers a soundscape punctuated by airy guitar and wild synths that build to a precipitous drop. Australian singer/songwriter Evie Irie adds vocals to his production with a chanting chorus that empowers and promises for her and her friends to “Be Somebody.”
The track adds to Dillon Francis’s long list of collaborations. He has previously worked with an array of artists including G-Eazy, Brendan Urie, lovelytheband, Cuco, and was the producer and songwriter for Panic! As the Disco’s hit track, “hey ma I made it,” which spent 11 weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs Chart.
“’Be Somebody’ is an ode to all the people that told me I was just a class clown and wasn’t gonna make it.”Dillon Francis
“Be Somebody is Dillon’s story, and I’m so lucky to help share it. When he was telling me the inspiration behind his idea, I totally related to it. Just a small kid with big dreams in a school ground.”Evie Irie
