Diplo Teases “LSD,” His New Collaboration With Sia & Labrinth
This is shaping up to be an unusual robust week for new music. Florence + The Machine kick off their fourth LP with “Hunger,” while Ariana Grande is expected to debut “R.E.M.” after teasing it on Twitter. And then there’s Christina Aguilera, who may or may not launch her comeback with a song called “Accelerate.” Joining that potentially explosive mix is Diplo. He throws his hat into the New Music Friday ring with “LSD” — an all-star collaboration with Sia and British singer/rapper Labrinth.
The super-producer started teasing the song yesterday (April 30) with a series of boomerang-type videos on Instagram that show the trio in wacky, rainbow-colored costumes. Sia, in particular, embraces the trippy theme — rocking a bright yellow robe with a clown wig. At this point, it’s unclear if “LSD” is a stand-alone single or the first taste of a larger project. Of course, the ever-prolific hitmaker just dropped an EP called California featuring DRAM, Desiigner and Trippie Red among others. See the pics below.
