Preview Dillon Francis’ Debut Album ‘Money Sucks, Friends Rule’

EDM rabble-rouser shares “When We Were Young,” featuring Chain Gang of 1974


The anticipation level for Dillon Francis’s debut album Money Sucks, Friends Rule has been red-lining for almost a year now. Back in February we had the news that it was being pushed back because of “record label release structures,” then in May came word that the record would be released on major label Columbia Records.

In the meantime, we’ve had a steady drip-feed of tracks, from festival anthem Get Low to radio-ready singles When We Were Young and Love in the Middle of a Firefight, to the Moombahton banger I Can’t Take It, Major Lazer collab’ We Make It Bounce and his big-room team-up with Martin Garrix, Set Me Free.

Now, at long last, we get to hear the remaining six tracks and from the very first – the trap-party anthem All That with good-time rappers Twista and The Rej3ctz – it’s ridiculous, high energy fun. Drunk All The Time, with Simon Lord of UK indie-dance champions Simian on vocals, is straight-up house with a debt to Random Access Memories (and its predecessors). Not Butter – one of two tracks on the album credited solely to Francis – is late night techno remixed as trap (with absurd lyrics about the joys of butter).

I Can’t Take It (the other solo Francis track) is a banger custom-made for mainstages. His collab’ with Aussie legends The Presets We Are Impossible is an electro beauty with Julian providing glorious vocals, while What’s That Spell with bounce-adopter TJR is a Dillon Francis live show condensed to 4.27, and Hurricane with rising singer Lily Elise is euphoric dance-pop with a sense of humour.

All told, it’s a fun, silly and energetic as you’d expect from dance music’s resident prankster. Have a listen to the exclusive stream below; Money Suck, Friends Rule is out this Friday 24 October (pre-order on iTunes here), the same day that Francis kicks off his biggest North American tour yet, before heading our way for the holiday period to play Origin NYE, Beyond the Valley and Field Day.
