After delivering singles off his debut album PARALLAX all summer long, TheFatRat has put his final touch on the project.


If there’s one artist who has truly embraced the marriage of electronic music and video games, it’s TheFatRat. Since first emerging on the scene he’s gone on to deliver some fantastic tunes for his thriving fanbase around the world while also becoming a go-to artist for video game syncs and e-Sports events. This year has seen his community on Discord reach even further heights with a massive number of users joining him there, and he’s been treating everyone with singles along the way in anticipation of his album PARALLAX.

The hype surrounding the release of PARALLAX began in July when TheFatRat delivered the lead single from the album, “Hiding In The Blue.” Collaborating with RIELL on the track, it set the tone for what was to come from this musical mastermind and was followed up with a flurry of singles each week through the rest of the summer. Stunning solo tracks like “Fire” and the video game-inspired “Arcadia” surfaced during this time, as well as collaborations with other artists such as Lindsey Stirling and Everen Maxwell on “Warbringer” and Cecilia Gault on “Violet Sky” and “Our Song.”

Parallax is an effect that, simply spoken, describes how things look different depending on where we stand. The metaphorical meaning of parallax is one of the most fascinating things in life for me. Often we are not aware that the reality that we perceive is a result of the position that we look from. We are not even aware that we are looking from a certain position. We think we see things as they are and then we are surprised when other people see them differently. The solution is not to insist on our perception but to take the position that we look from into account. The album is about how things change depending on how you look at them.

Love It When You Hurt Me” was the most recent single with renowned singer-songwriter Anjulie, and she returned for the final one to be unveiled with the album’s full release, “Let Love Win.” This track centers around the notion of fighting people we love and that it’s better to spread love instead of hate, which is a message the world truly needs during these turbulent times. With Anjulie’s stunning vocals and TheFatRat’s precise production elements backing them, this tune is one that anyone can fall in love with.

But that isn’t all that TheFatRat has gifted with the release of PARALLAX, as he’s also announced that every track on the album will be free for creators to use on social platforms with the source material also being made public. He looks to help spark creativity in the minds of new artists around the world and guide them to follow their dreams – and we can’t wait to see where this independent artist takes everyone next.
