Diplo To Release First Album In 18 Years

Diplo will release his first “proper” album in almost two decades.

Though the now 43-year-old DJ/producer/artist release an Lp back in 2020 using his real name (Thomas Wesley) ‘Diplo’ is to be the first record using his famous stage name since 2004’s ‘Florida.’

In a statement about the forthcoming full length, Jasper Goggins, Mad Decent label head and Diplo’s collaborator said in a statement: “This is the first proper Diplo album since ‘Florida’; a fantastic and cohesive self-titled work that will stand as a career-defining moment. The features and collaborations may look like contemporary industry algorithmic engineering, but this album is actually purpose built for Diplo’s favourite places to play in the world; a testament to his almost absurd and undying love of DJing live in front of people.”

The self-titled album will include the Grammy-nominated ‘On My Mind’, the collaboration with dance group SIDEPIECE along with hits ‘Looking For Me’ and ‘Promises’ with Paul Woolford and Kareen Lomax.

The ten-time Grammy nominee – who throughout his career has worked with a litany of music icons – including Britney Spears, Madonna and Beyoncé – will also return to London’s Fabric nightclub when he takes is album on tour for a set of “special” shows.

According to the press statement: “Diplo will play a handful of very special shows in March around the album’s release, including sets in Barcelona, Paris, Copenhagen and London, where he’ll return to the legendary Fabric, the first club to book him there in the early 2000s.”
