Last week Bliss n Eso joined triple j’s Veronica & Lewis in studio to premiere their brand new single ‘Friend Like You (feat. Lee Fields)’ and reveal the title to their highly anticipated sixth studio album, Off The Grid. This morning MC Bliss, MC Eso and DJ Izm are thrilled to announce that Off The Grid will drop Friday 10 March with the vinyl release set for Friday 7 April. Pre-orders for all forms of the album are now available.

‘Friend Like You’ features legendary US soul singer Lee Fields and is a raw reflection of the hard times everyone goes through at some point during life. MC Bliss explains, “Sometimes those dark times feel like they have you trapped and you can be a prisoner of your own mind.  The song is an affirmation, a reminder that this prison has been built within your own mind, so at the end of the day you’re the one with the power to break free.” 

The powerful vocals of Lee complement the relatable verses that Bliss n Eso deliver throughout the track: “We wanted to find someone who has literally been through the struggle and you can hear the pain and emotion in their voice. Lee has been through so much in his life, when you hear him sing you can literally see his soul,” MC Eso explains.

To coincide with the release of the first single, the group announced the Dopamine Tour, an intimate run of shows which will see Bliss n Eso take things back to basics and perform in some of the smallest rooms they’ve played in for many years. The Dopamine Tour was a quick sell out with lucky ticket holders across Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane scrambling to be the first to see a showcase of what we can expect on Off The Grid.
