ILLY: ‘Where Ya Been’ ft. PEZ (single)

The second single from Illy‘s upcoming third album Bring It Back is ‘Where Ya Been’ featuring chart-topping contemporary Pez. A playful moment from Bring It Back; ‘Where Ya Been’ follows previous automatic-hit single ‘Heard It All’ on an upbeat tip.

With the production expertise of ARIA award-winning M-Phazes, ‘Where Ya Been’ is not amiss of quality. A head-nodder from the get-go; trademark snapping boom bap and laid back synth chords sets the scene.

Illy and Pez trade flows seamlessly, sympathizing on a subject they’re both all too familiar with. The two make light of the constant pressure for answers, and the eagerness of fans for new material.

“‘Where Ya Been’ is a bit of fun at the expense of the people who are constantly asking about what’s going on. It feels like sometimes from the day an album is released, or a tour is finished, people are asking “where the fuck are you”, “hurry up and play our town” “what’s going on with a new album?”, and that’s awesome, but it’s still fun to take the piss out of. I wanted Pez on a track for ages, and this idea for a track, and Phazes beat, suited him perfectly, seeing as he’s been away for so long and gone through the exact same thing.”
