Diplo is collaborating with country group The Band Perry

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Diplo revealed what could be his most unlikely collaboration yet: a song with country group The Band Perry. Citing the production as “unorthodox,” Wes shared his initial skepticism upon entering the studio with the band:

“I just did a session with the Band Perry, and I didn’t think that would work. But I listened to it yesterday — I’m like, ‘Yo, this is a big, awesome song.’ The way we recorded it was unorthodox — I just did it in a room with a mandolin. I mean, I’ll try anything once.”

This is not the first time Diplo has worked outside of the electronic music sphere. For example, he points to the songs he worked on with Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend, and the fact that he and Ariel Rechtshaid share a studio. Truth be told, despite his high-energy style, Wes admits that he loves Marvin Gaye, “jazz and all that stuff.”
