Thomas Wesley Pentz, better known as Diplo, is one of the most dynamic forces in the music industry. In addition to his massive solo career, he has also stayed busy with Major Lazer, LSD & Silk City. We last heard from him a few weeks ago when he released “Boom Bye Bye” from his upcoming ‘Europa‘ EP. Today, we get another taste of his upcoming project.
Today, Diplo has linked up with BBC Sound of 2019 winner Octavian for an absolutely epic anthem titled “New Shapes.” And once again, Diplo has proven that he can produce an epic anthem regardless of genre. So stream the new anthem, read what Diplo had to say about the release, and grab the download below.
I met Octavian at a party in London. We took a photo and I never thought I would see the kid again. Over the next six months I kept hearing his name and seeing him on great songs. I tried to stay in touch even though he had another twelve phone numbers since we met. Finally, he was stuck in L.A. for a while and it was easy to pull up on him. After a few weeks we nailed this song and I’m glad it gets to finally see the light of day. Big up to Jim-E Stack for producing this with me.Diplo
