Dillon Francis unveils a brand-new single entitled “Be Somebody” [feat. Evie Irie] today.

Get it HERE via Casablanca Records.

Dillon cooks up a simmering soundscape punctuated by airy guitar, wild synths, and a precipitous drop into a massive melody. Meanwhile, Australian singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Evie Irie flutters over confessional verses as she laments, “Everybody’s fake as fuck and I’m way too drunk to pretend I’m happy.” The track culminates on the chantable chorus where Evie bosses up, empowers, and promises, “Me and my friends, we gonna pool our money, we gonna get a droptop, we gonna be somebody.

It also continues a tradition of outside-the-box collabs for Dillon whose discography boasts bangers with everyone from G-EazyBrendan UrielovelythebandCuco and as a producer and songwriter on Panic! As the Disco’s hit single “hey look ma I made it”, which spent 11 consecutive weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs Chart.

Dillon commented, “’Be Somebody’ is an ode to all the people that told me I was just a class clown and wasn’t gonna make it.”

Evie added, “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.”
