You can probably forgive Diplo for not releasing a full-length solo album in eight years (his last was 2004's Florida) - dude's probably been busy with his production, remixing, label-running, Major Lazer-ing, et cetera. He's finally gearing up to release another album, as yet untitled, which he describes as "psychedelic Southern gospel." Its first real single, "About That Life," fits that descriptor pretty well - it's got some reggae and world touches, but it basically sounds like a drugged-out Southern Gothic summer roadtrip. Jahan Lennon, formerly of Mad Decent band Popo, lays down some fantastic woozy vocals. Check it out.
