The Mad Decent-released song is out of the “Close To Me” producer’s wheelhouse as the instrumentation is very subtle, allowing the London-born lyricist’s vocals to shine through: “You don’t show me no sign of your innocent side/Can’t see it, B, you’re blinded/You don’t realize it/And you can trust in my side, no riddles, no lies.” The new collab marks another track off the Grammy winner’s forthcoming EP Europa, which the name suggests, is all about Europe. He previously released “Boom Bye Bye” with French rapper Niska.
“I met Octavian at a party in London. We took a photo and I never thought I would see the kid again,” Diplo shared in a press release. “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.” Listen to “New Shapes” from Diplo and Octavian here.
