The Driver Era 1883 Playlist Takeover

To celebrate the release of their brand new single ‘Fade’ dropping today, Rocky & Ross Lynch from The Driver Era curated a special playlist exclusively for 1883! Get ready to jam.

It’s been a busy year for the boys of The Driver Era. This year alone they’ve released an EP of remixed tracks, a two-track EP, a remixed single with electro-pop band Smallpoolsand two singles — the laid-back track ‘Take Me Away’ and the Rocky Lynch-driven track ‘Places’. Although those releases have all been incredible, their latest offering — the shimmy-inducing ‘Fade’ — is the tour-de-force of their entire discography. With ‘Fade’, The Driver Era is reminding listeners to embrace every single minute of life while they still can; a message definitely needed during 2020. When asked about the track, the two brothers talked about how ‘this song, in particular, was one that has been around for a few years but needed the right people to believe in it.’ Luckily for us, they found the right people.

To mark the release of their next hit single ‘Fade’, The Driver Era curated a special playlist for 1883 which is full of tracks they love & find inspiration in. Check out their takeover below!
