British producer, Tourist has teamed up with Years & Years frontman, Olly Alexander for a brand new song, 'Illuminate'.

Premiered on Annie Mac's Radio 1 show on Friday, the bubbly, optimistic track makes for an impressive showcase for the two much-hyped artists. Known for his moody, minimal late-night pieces, this marks a refreshing and bouncy new direction for the seasoned producer. Alexander's vocals create an up-beat, effervescent vibe that propels the track into a gleaming ode to the lost conquests of summer. 

Check out the track below.
