Friday, November 17, 2023 – ERNEST today released his collaboration with artist / producer Steve Aoki, "Us."
The song is featured on Aoki's eighth studio album,"HiROQUEST 2: Double Helix." A video of the song also was released.
"I'm stoked to have this song coming out," said ERNEST. "We wrote it a couple years ago in the middle of COVID, and when we wrote it I knew that I wanted it to live in some capacity. I'm such a fan of Steve's music, so when he reached out about putting it out together, I was ecstatic. The song brings together country and dance in a fun and playful way."
Aoki said, "I've been a huge fan of ERNEST's songwriting for a while. So, when I first heard him singing on the demo of this song, I knew this was the perfect opportunity to work together. Regardless of the music genre, his lyrics and vocal delivery work perfectly. Together we were able to create a song that feels authentically dance while maintaining his country roots."
Last month, ERNEST released his new single "Kiss Of Death." Co-written by Andy Albert and Ryan Vojtesak, and produced by Joey Moi, "Kiss Of Death" bridges traditional country soundscapes and sentiments.
ERNEST is on a nationwide now on his headlining This Fire Tour. Rolling through November with Jake Worthington and Cody Lohden as support, ERNEST will wrap the tour with back-to-back nights at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium on Nov. 28 and 29.
