Silk City – New Love (feat. Ellie Goulding)
Featuring the catchy vocals of famed singer/songwriter Ellie Goulding, the uplifting release showcases the depth of Diplo & Mark Ronson’s production abilities as a duo. Capturing Diplo’s iconic dance floor vibes with Mark Ronson’s pop sensibilities, the track is perfectly paired to be both dancefloor and radio-friendly.
“I’m always stoked to get back in the studio with Mark. We’ve been constantly trading ideas since the start of Silk City and finally found the time to bring some of them to life. We came out with this classic house record and Ellie was kind enough to lend her voice to it.”Diplo
“I love the music that comes out when Wes and I get together. It has a joy to it that’s different from everything else I work on. I’ve known Ellie for over ten years, and it’s great to finally get to make something together. Her voice has such a pure tone that cuts through everything.”Mark Ronson
“I’ve known Mark and Wes for years and it seemed only right to make a tune together, at a time where we all need to dance and be free, even if just in our kitchens. The song is about losing yourself on your own, not needing to be seen, knowing that the one that got away could be just as happy as this too. The main concept is dancing on your own not needing to be seen.”Ellie Goulding
