The announcement about Diplo's booking at the upcoming country festival Stagecoach came as a surprise a few weeks ago, but now the renowned producer and DJ has leaned fully into his new curiosities about the genre with a brand new country project.
His upcoming country releases will be shared under the Thomas Wesley moniker, a play off his real name. His first song is a track called 'So Long' featuring Nashville singer Cam, a timely release ahead of his upcoming debut at Stagecoach. According to a press release, this release marks the first of a string of collaborations with country artists he plans to release.
Coming off of two back-to-back weekends playing Coachella and heading into his now highly anticipated Stagecoach performance, Diplo is certainly proving himself the ultimate musical chameleon.
Listen to 'So Long' below.
