03 APRIL 2020 (TORONTO, ON) - Black Atlass has released his new album Dream Awake via XO Records/Republic Records/Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company. Executive produced by Grammy Award winning producer DannyBoyStyles, Dream Awake is a hazy and downtempo journey of love through Black Atlass’ lens. Black Atlass notes "Dream Awake' is a metaphor to describe the feeling of lust. The album is a journey about the joy and chaos two people experience in the process of coming to know one another and ultimately falling in love."

The release is joined by a video for the second single from the album, "By My Side" feat. Sonia. Directed by Brenden Vaughan it follows the two artists through the California desert as they reflect on each other’s love for one another. In February Atlass released “Lie To Me”, his first new music released since 2018, which was accompanied by a haunting music video that followed him and a love interest on a warped trip through an abandoned mansion and the second.
