Boy Willows shares new song 'Fila' featuring Wallows' Dylan Minnette.

After a teaser earlier this week, Boy Willows has now shared his hypnotic new song 'Fila' which features Wallows' Dylan Minnette, and sees the two musicians coping with loneliness in different ways.

About the song, Boy Willows says: “Dylan and I were talking to each other about what feelings bubbled up when we were forced to slow down for the first time in a long time. I wanted the song to be dream-like. The first lyrics are ‘follow me down’ because it's meant to take the listener down a rabbit hole of what's going on in my head. When I was making the instrumental, I was picturing everything in slow motion, super delicate and airy, giving space for Dylan and I to share some intimate stuff. We got to collaborate on this song and heal by singing about it together. Looking at the song now, it’s cool to hear our verses almost converse with each other. It’s comforting.”

And about working with Boy Willows, Minnette shares: “Landon first played me the song when we were sharing a tour bus together. It was only about 30 seconds long at the time and I immediately was so inspired by it and I told him I thought he should extend it because it’s so great. He asked me if I wanted to throw on a verse myself and my little warm heart exploded. The melodies I wanted came to me immediately. I also wanted them to pretty much mimic what he was already singing on his part already too with some of it. I’m so proud of the final result.”
