Elephante, real name Tim Wu, told EDM.com earlier this summer that his forthcoming release Diamond Days will be the first to feature his own vocals. With the release of the album's lead track, "Diamond Days," Wu has assured us all that his voice will not disappoint. 

The dreamy, deeply personal song falls perfectly into place with the indie electronica sound that has made Elephante popular. Classical music training has aided Wu in blending satisfying chord progressions with future bass synths to create his signature melodic EDM sound. Hits like "Plans" featuring Brandyn Burnette and "Catch On" with Nevve exemplify his niche withing the genre. 

Wu made the right call to accompany his lyrics, about the nostalgic feelings that accompany memories of the past, with his own vocals. His voice is smooth and pensive. When paired with the bass-driven chorus and whimsical drop, "Diamond Days" truly feels like a gem to be cherished.  

“It’s evocative of a time passed or an imaginary past, and the memories you have,” Wu explained in July. “There’s this sheen of how you look back fondly on things."

Following the song's release, Wu will kick off his 10-date "Diamond Days" tour on November 1st. Starting in San Luis Obispo, California, it will conclude later that month in Phoenix, Arizona.
