deadmau5 and Lights have reunited for a new collab, which will soon arrive on the former's beloved mau5trap imprint.

The two first teamed up in 2018, when they dropped the trippy midtempo track "Drama Free." Longtime friends and collaborators, they also famously performed together at the 2019 editions of Ultra Music Festival and Creamfields. 

deadmau5 and Lights have now joined forces for a new tune called "When The Summer Dies," sharing a preview and announcing a release date. The clip is short, but fans can safely look forward to what sounds like a signature deadmau5 electro song à la "Sofi Needs a Ladder."
