about

Dispatch from the Milky Way: Collider, a collaboration sculpted from floating space and sprinkled through with galactic sparkle, has taken shape. Dear friends Holly Long and The Hitmaker, stretching the space between Venice Beach and Chicago, stand together on the internet plane as Millennium Fields. After
previously releasing an emission of lush pop called "Stardust Glitter" in 2011, their forces have been directed once again toward the eye of the needle.
For 24 months, these two energy sources transmitted tracks back and forth, spinning wildly together in the virtual sandbox of internet music waves. And out of this two-year playdate, they launched a swirly electro-acoustic cotton candy dream EP dubbed Collider. As much a melding of visions as a collision of molecules.
The duo have crafted four new original tracks of psychedelia, and then--in a fit of stellar inspiration--landed on a sublime cover of the Cure's "Pictures of You." The set is rounded out with a remix of the opening track, "Trouble," and finally, to enhance the continuity of the astronomical unit, their debut, epic single, "Stardust Glltter" as a bonus.
Constellate your own energy toward www.millenniumfields.com, and enjoy the Big Bang of love which emits from this blueshifting sonic heaven.
The record was mastered by Grammy-nominated engineer Marcos Sueiro, who has mastered all of the releases by The Hitmaker.

about

Millennium Fields Chicago, Illinois

An epic, lush, pop-rock collaboration between singer/songwriter Holly Long and The Hitmaker, Millennium Fields is the center of a Venn diagram where these artists can explore the magical, big sounds of anthemic pop and atmospheric music often mined by U2, Simple Minds, and Kate Bush.
Their debut single “Stardust Glitter” is a perfect example—evocative, mysterious, and uplifting.

Track Name: Pictures of You [The Cure cover]
I've been looking so long at these pictures of you
That I almost believe that they're real
I've been living so long with my pictures of you
That I almost believe that the pictures are all I can feel

Remembering you standing quiet in the rain
As I ran to your heart to be near
And we kissed as the sky fell in, holding you close
How I always held close in your fear

Remembering you running soft through the night
You were bigger, brighter, and whiter than snow
Screamed at the make believe, screamed at the sky
And you finally found all your courage to let it all go

Remembering you fallen into my arms
Crying for the death of your heart
You were stone white, so delicate, lost in the cold
You were always so lost in the dark

Remembering you, how you used to be
Slow drowned you were angels, so much more than everything
Hold for the last time, then slip away quietly
Open my eyes, but I never see anything

If only I'd thought of the right words
I could have held on to your heart
If only I'd thought of the right words
I wouldn't be breaking apart all my pictures of you

Looking so long at these pictures of you
And never hold on to your heart
Looking so long for the words to be true
And always just breaking apart, my pictures of you

There was nothing in the world that I ever wanted more
Than to feel you deep in my heart
There was nothing in the world that I ever wanted more
Than to never feel the breaking apart, my pictures of you
Track Name: Stardust Glitter [bonus track]
So beautiful, this angel you are 

Eyes deep and lonely, gaze from afar 

With strong hands and golden limbs you're made 

Treasure from beyond the grave

In a moment--just a second it took

Little tremble, with a warning that shook right through me 

The moment, feeble, come and gone 

Somewhere all those horses steady on

All those lights are too bright 

Spinning in stardust glitter 

And you hold on so tight 

Up here the air is thinner 

You're riding on that shooting star 

I don't want to break your heart

With a whisper and a reeling 

Skip the heart beating 

Oh, the soaring and the roaring in your ears 

Don't it make you feel just so alive 

Seconds before you die

All those lights are too bright 

Spinning in stardust glitter 

And you hold on so tight 

Up here the air is thinner 

You're riding on that shooting star 

I don't want to break your heart

Oh, and it would be 
only sweet and lovely 

Carry on the breeze 

You only for me

All those lights are too bright 

Spinning in stardust glitter 

And you hold on so tight 

Up here the air is thinner 

You're riding on that shooting star 

I don't want to break your heart
