MØ and Major Lazer had one of the biggest songs of the summer on their hands when they collaborated for the single “Lean On.” So, it makes sense that MØ is looking to Diplo once more for a new single of her own. Diplo and MØ continue their chemistry on “Kamikaze,” an ambitious piece of pop that was a legitimate shot at dominating the coming colder months. If you recall, these two paired up for another solo effort off MØ’s 2014 debut album No Mythologies To Follow. Premiered today on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 program, MØ coupled the track’s release with the following words:
I love working with Diplo. It’s always such a fun and open-minded creative process. It’s about making memorable songs but, more than that, it’s about making pop music that wants to push boundaries. I’ve been loving all kinds of pop since I first fell in love with the Spice Girls, but pop needs to bring something new to the table, it needs balls. And that’s what you get working with Diplo. Making “Lean On” and being a part of that tornado these past eight months has been one of the greatest experiences in my life so far, and I’m super happy that “Kamikaze” is made in a collaboration with the same group of my friends.
You can stream “Kamikaze” above. Expect an official release in the near future.
