Allday Recruits Cub Sport, Interpolates Ben Lee for ‘Miss You Still’

Allday, Cub Sport, and Ben Lee: talk about a powerhouse Australian musical trio.

Allday has released his new single, “Miss You Still”, which features his long-time friend, Cub Sport‘s Tim Nelson. The song interpolates Lee‘s classic hit “Cigarettes Will Kill You”, a favourite of Allday’s.

“I’d always loved that song… I’ve always loved the piano. I think people will just like the piano, even if they haven’t heard the original song. [Ben Lee] was cool with it. I’ve known everyone from Cub Sport since 2012 or 2013, so that is a cool friendship,” the Aussie rapper shares.

Lee was more than happy to have his song sampled. “I’ve always been inspired by artists who sit in their own space, carving out their own territory, beyond competition because they are playing their own game. Allday is that type of artist and I’m honoured he sampled “Ciggys” and made it his own,” he says.

“It’s so cool. And Cub Sport on the track too! Top day for me. Proud to be associated with this current wave of cutting-edge Aussie artists who are in the process of taking over the world!”

“Miss You Still” is the third taste of The Necklace, Allday’s forthcoming album, following “Drip Drop” and “Access”. Allday worked with long-time collaborator Simon Lam to create The Necklace, which is described as being “a comprehensive and dynamic reminder of Allday’s talent as a charismatic storyteller, and love for the craft.”

It’s three years since Allday’s fourth studio album, Drinking With My Smoking Friends, placed #13 on the ARIA Albums Chart.

After the release of The Necklace in August, Allday will begin his national album tour, taking in stops in Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane (see full dates below). Tickets go on sale to the general public on Monday, May 20th at 9am AEST.
