When Fairlane announced on his socials that he had a new collaboration to release this month, the possibilities of who it could be with seemed endless. And yet, it can’t come as a surprise to anyone who has followed the Canadian artist over the years that it’s William Black. The pair previously worked together on “Butterflies” featuring Dia Frampton, and Fairlane notably put his own touch on William Black and SLANDER‘s “Back To U.” Both were already on Insomniac’s debut Lost In Dreams festival lineup when Black teased that he would be performing new music during his set. Sure enough, Fairlane entered the stage to join Black to debut their new collaboration “Broken.”
Black has been hard at work on his sophomore album and recently announced that it was finished. One can expect “Broken” to be a part of its tracklist, although the release date and full list of album inclusions is awaited. Meanwhile, Fairlane has been hot on the release radar as well, with his cover of Yellowcard’s 2003 punk-rock hit “Ocean Avenue” surfacing as his latest single.
