Today, fans are treated to the third and latest single off of Ekali's forthcoming debut album, in which he enlists Atlantic Records' multi-platinum singer and songwriter Kiiara for a collaboration titled “Back To You.”

Ekali (real name Nathan Shaw) has generated quite the heavy anticipation for his upcoming album since hinting at it back in April. Since then, the L.A.-based producer has been playing snippets of the album at live shows. Shaw recently debuted his collaboration with Nitti Gritti at Alison Wonderland's Temple of Wonderland in August and has left fans on edge with his and Illenium's collaboration “Hard to Say Goodbye,” which they first debuted at EDC Las Vegas. The album also features the likes of Au/Ra and guest vocalists like Reo Cragun.

Shaw is no stranger to high-profile collaborations, so it’s true to form that his debut album would enlist industry-leading talent. Kiiara, better known as the “Princess of Chop-Pop,” dominated charts with her smash hit single, “Gold,” back in 2016. Her unique vocal prowess earned her over a billion cumulative global streams, as well as opening doors for her to working with hip-hop and EDM’s biggest players. “Back To You” combines the forces of these two rapidly rising artists for a sleek, bass-infused pop track. 

Fans can expect a tour announcement soon after the debut of Shaw’s album. The “Blame” producer took to Twitter to tease his 2020 solo North America headline tour A World Away, as well as a full new merch line.
