Diplo and Mark Ronson aka Silk City team up with Ellie Goulding for their first release since their 2018 hot streak, “New Love.”
The Grammy Award-winning DJ/producer superduo absolutely shine on the track, celebrating the classic house and disco sounds that have inspired them so much throughout their careers. “New Love” rocks nostalgic dance elements and a smooth, zesty groove of its own, as Ellie Goulding’s powerhouse voice cuts through the mix with feel-good attitude. It’s a new school approach to a tried and true method, and we fall a little more in love with the track with each listen.
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
Named after the Philadelphia diner where the pair first met more than 20 years ago, Silk City is a celebration of classic dance music. After decades of friendship, Diplo and Ronson entered the studio together in 2018 and churned out hits — “Only Can Get Better” featuring Daniel Merriweather, “Feel About You” featuring Mapei, “Loud” with GoldLink and Desiigner, and “Electricity” with Dua Lipa.
