For Allday, Miss You Still marks a special moment of graduation for both him and Cub Sport, who’ve risen through the music ranks in tandem, cutting their teeth as young artists and evolving into creatives defined by their own unique artistry. This collaboration is a masterclass in blending the delicate nature of Nelson’s ARIA-winning pop vocals and Allday’s distinctive bars, all set to warm nostalgia echoed through the familiar piano chords of Cigarettes Will Kill You.

“I’d always loved that song [Cigarettes…]; I’ve always loved the piano. I think people will just like the piano, even if they haven’t heard the original song. [Ben Lee] was cool with it. I’ve known everyone from Cub Sport since 2012 or 2013, so that is a cool friendship,” Allday said.

Ben Lee says, “I’ve always been inspired by artists who sit in their own space, carving out their own territory, beyond competition because they are playing their own game. Allday is that type of artist and I’m honoured he sampled Ciggys and made it his own. It’s so cool. And Cub Sport on the track too! Top day for me. Proud to be associated with this current wave of cutting-edge Aussie artists who are in the process of taking over the world!”


The single comes alongside an official video directed by ARIA Award winning director Kyle Caulfield. Kyle says, “… Naturally the combination of the colour blue and the themes of the track, birthed this concept of ‘The never ending waiting room.’ We wanted to build a transitional/liminal style space that allowed us to watch as others would come and go but Allday was seemingly stuck in time and space. I guess it kind of takes the feeling of being lost, stuck and unsure of closure in an emotional sense, and explores that in a physical world.”

Allday’s enduring longevity is a testament to his appeal and relatability. For nearly a decade, his music has resonated with listeners, earning him an incredibly dedicated following. Allday’s authenticity and humour has struck a chord with fans, whether through his social videos or his down-to-earth persona. His storytelling prowess uncovers universal truths in the everyday, from suburban life to our interactions with the world and each other.

After a string of successful self-released singles, EPs, mixtapes and four studio albums, the Adelaide – via- Melbourne – via LA – via London artist has amassed 300 million global streams and scored three Top 10 ARIA charting albums.
