Fred again.. has had an unprecedented year. In the wake of his breakout Boiler Room performance, the English producer went on to close out Coachella’s historic mainstage alongside Skrillex and Four Tet and sell out a staggering eight consecutive shows at LA’s Shrine Expo Hall.
Fred has now released “i adore u,” an emotive single that once again highlights his profound ability to tell the stories of humankind through his music. Performing the song together with Obongjayar for the first time at Lollapalooza, he opened up about how the song came to fruition.

“…Basically, the song that I made, I made it—in my mind—for my little sister,” he said. “And then when I spoke to Obongjayar about the record, I found out that by beautiful serendipity, he’d made his record for his little brother.”
Weaving chopped-up samples from Obongjayar’s “I Wish It Was Me,” bubbly marimbas and catchy shekere percussion, Fred delivers a mirthful and uplifting tribute that serves as a reminder to take a step back and appreciate life’s connections.
