Since Labrinth, Sia and Diplo joined as LSD last year, the supergroup has traced a path to pop success. The trio recently revealed that their self-titled debut album will be released in April, and now they have shared another taste through the new optimistic single, "No New Friends".
The song gives everyone the chance to shine, thanks to the idiosyncratic voice of Sia, the hip-hop energy of Labrinth and the pop production of Diplo influenced by the EDM that binds everything together. The track is an ode to appreciating what you have, and Sia and Labrinth sing on the choir, "I have everything I need in a world of doubts / We got our dreams of champagne / In an endless drought / We are the kings and queens who seek our boards out / We have everything we need, there are no new friends now. "
Diplo previously explained how the group got together, stating in an interview last year: "Many people don't know who [Labrinth] is. but he is one of the most crazy and influential figures as a producer and songwriter. I had known him for a couple of years; I was a fan of his hip-hop records. Both, I've been working with her for the last five years, back and forth for her. Originally, I wasn't in it [LSD] and then our publisher had the idea of throwing me in there; those two artists, together, are two of the craziest and most creative people I've ever met in my life. I think they have the most serious attention deficit disorder together, their ideas are so crazy, so I helped put their ideas together, taking the work of their producer. "
