Chicago’s very own Robert Hauldren and Frederic Kennett, otherwise known as Louis the Child, are making extreme power moves this year. After Love Is Alive dropped earlier in January, it seemed that the duo might have something bigger in store for the year than just your average banger, and lo and behold, that wariness has proved correct.
The duo plans on dropping a six track EP titled Love is Alive via Ultra Music. Set your calendars for March 24th for a collection of songs that, as they put it, “merges the boundaries between indie dance and pop”. The EP is going to feature both Fire and Love is Alive, along with a handful of other songs that haven’t been officially released, but any true Louis fan would recognize from live shows. Check out the tracklist below.
“Fire (feat. Evalyn)”
“Slow Down Love (feat. Chelsea Cutler)”
“Phone Died (feat. blaise railey)”
‘World On Fire (feat. Ashe)”
“Love Is Alive (feat Elohim)”
But wait, there’s more! These guys are putting in all the work and have already started a tour with their first show having gone down at Indiana University last night, and more shows slated to go all the way out into the middle of the summer.
