They've teamed up to form new supergroup LSD
The first taster of their collaborative project LSD, there’s an entire album to follow from the supergroup in the near future, with a second single also dropping imminently.
Though the project takes its name from the three artists’ initials rather than the hallucinogenic drug of the same name, there’s a hint of the psychedelic to ‘Genius” visuals all the same. Taking clear influence from 60s graphic styles, the track itself is an equally kaleidoscopic offering; the three huge collaborators swapping rapid-fire verses atop a trademark Diplo monster beat.

Sia and Labrinth previously worked together on her Wonder Woman soundtrack cut ‘To Be Human’, and as of late the mysterious Aussie singer has been collaborating with a massive range of artists. Last year Sia linked up with TQX for ‘The Day That You Moved On’ and worked with Zayn Malik on ‘Dusk Till Dawn’. Her last album was 2017’s ‘Everyday Is Christmas.’
Diplo recently hit headlines when he claimed that global pop is facing a bleak future, and back in March he released his ‘California’ EP – featuring collaborations with DRAM, Designer, and Santigold. The producer has also announced a partnership with Mark Ronson for their new Silk City project, and is set to make his live debut with Ronson at New York’s Governors Ball next month.
Labrinth’s latest record ‘Electronic Earth’, meanwhile, came out in 2012.
