Skrillex celebrated the release of a brand new song on Wednesday, titled, “Would You Ever.” The effortlessly smooth, pulsating track follows up “Chicken Soup” as the second single released by the producer and DJ so far in 2017. While the new song looks to carry its own weight as a stand alone single, it’s worth noting that it was co-written by Jason "Poo Bear" Boyd.
Pop fans will recognize Boyd and that voice of his from recent collaborations alongside Justin Bieber, having co-written “What Do You Mean?” and “Company” from his 2015 Purpose album. Boyd has also co-wrote the track “Where Are Ü Now,” one of the singles from Skrillex and Diplo’s Jack Ü collaboration duo that featured Mr. Bieber on vocals.
The music video for the new single can be watched above, and features some equally smooth moves courtesy of professional longboard dancer, Milan "Hairy Longboarder" Somerville. The video’s picturesque scenic background in addition to the song’s light, up-tempo feel makes it a perfect outdoor party song for those hot summer nights.
Speaking of Bieber, the pop star recently cancelled the final 14 remaining shows on his Purpose World Tour earlier this week. His massive 150-concert journey kicked off back in March 2016, and would have seen him visit six more countries over the next three months before ending on Oct. 7. While fans are disappointed, fellow artists including John Mayer have showed some support for Bieber’s decision to call it early, rather than risk staying too late.
