Towards the end of last month, Diplo introduced his new Europa EP by sharing its lead single, “Boom Bye Bye” featuring Niska. Continuing to support that forthcoming release, the globe-trotting, genre-bending producer is back with another Europa single, “New Shapes” with renowned U.K. artist Octavian.

“I met Octavian at a party in London. We took a photo and I never thought I would see the kid again,” Diplo shared via press statement, breaking down the back-story behind today’s track. “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.”

You can stream Diplo and Octavian’s “New Shapes” collaboration above, while Europa is scheduled to arrive on February 22 via Mad Decent.
