Diplo, Dove Cameron, and Sturgill Simpson Team Up for New Song ‘Use Me (Brutal Hearts)’

    Diplo has teamed up with Dove Cameron and Sturgill Simpson (as Johnny Blue Skies) for a new track called ‘Use Me (Brutal Hearts)’. It’s the second preview of Diplo’s upcoming album Thomas Wesley: Chapter 2 – Swamp Savant, following ‘Wasted’ (with Kodak Black and Koe Wetzel). The single arrives with an accompanying video starring Sean Penn, which you can check out below.

    “To prepare for this new Thomas Wesley project, I went back to my father’s house in Florida and I spent six months learnin guitar, gettin in touch with nature, working his boat when the shrimp were running on full moons at the trailer park,” Diplo said in a press release. “I tried on a lot of cowboy hats. I rode a lot of motorcycles and horses basically reflected on my whole life and career and connection with this music…there was a lot. It all started in the swamps I was raised in. This is the greatest single piece of work I’ve ever done, I can promise you that.”

    The follow-up to 2020’s Diplo Presents Thomas Wesley Chapter 1: Snake Oil is out April 28 via Mad Decent.
