Louis The Child float through electronic, pop, and alternative with wide-eyed wonder, adventurous spirit, and the elation of being present. Since 2013, the Chicago-bred duo—Freddy Kennett and Robby Hauldren—have popped off as a phenomenon streamed upwards of 600 million times. A remarkable number in 2020, but there is even something more remarkable about half a billion streams. They did it without producing a single album.
But that day is finally over. Today, Chicago-bred production duo Louis The Child release their debut album Here For Now, which is comprised of 14 anthemic tracks with features from the likes of EARTHGANG, K.Flay, Foster The People, Bob Moses and more.
The album includes the recently released track “Nobody Like You” with Vera Blue, the pair’s latest single “Little Things” with Quinn XCII & Chelsea Cutler which has garnered over 20 million combined streams, and previously released track “Free” with Drew Love which has amassed over 25 million combined streams, along with “Every Color” with Foster The People and “Don’t Mind.”
Louis The Child says about the album, “There are a few messages throughout the album. Primarily, it’s about realizing and accepting how short this life is, trying to appreciate the moments we get, and finding the magic in every second because we’re only here for now. We wrote songs about the way we view the world. The way we treat each other matters. We can be a positive light. Let’s not stress the small things. Let’s make our experience the best we can for ourselves and everyone around us.”
In celebration of the album’s release, Louis The Child dropped a brand-new line of merchandise. 100% of the proceeds from the merch store sales this week (June 24 – July 1) will be donated to Chicago’s SaveMoneySaveLife Foundation. Click HERE to purchase Louis The Child merch.
