posted Nov 16, 2014, 12:52 PM by Vu Nguyen
DJ/Producer/Artist Dillon Francis’ debut album, Money Sucks, Friends Rule, is now available via Columbia / Mad Decent.
The album features entrancing collaborations with artists including DJ Snake, Martin Garrix, Twista, Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie and Major Lazer, among others.  The current single “When We Were Young,” a collaboration with Sultan + Ned Shepard featuring The Chain Gang Of 1974, already has over 1.5 million SoundCloud streams, is currently featured as ESPN’s “Song of the Month” for October. A deluxe package is also available.
Additionally, the highly anticipated video for “When We Were Young,” directed by Agata Alexander, has premiered today on VEVO and can also be seen every hour on the hour across MTV, MTV2, MTV Hits and mtvU.  The clip revolves around Dillon celebrating his 3rd birthday, featuring performance footage of the song’s collaborators playing children’s instruments.  Instagram star/comedian The Fat Jew and adult film actress Sophie Dee also make cameo appearances in the funny and affectionate clip.
Dillon is also rolling out a headlining North American fall tour in support of the album.  The Friends Rule Tour will kick off November 17 in Nashville, TN and stop in major cities across the U.S. and Canada before wrapping with a headline date at Brooklyn’s famed Barclays Center.
