Skrillex has finally dropped the curtain on new music, unveiled a stunning new collaborative track with Starrah and Four Tet called "Butterflies."

Longtime fans of the dubstep legend may be dismayed at the lack of bass, but it doesn't make the track any less impactful. "Butterflies," which arrives by way of Skrillex's OWSLA banner, is a hypnotic house banger that only reinforces his reputation as the most versatile producer in electronic music.

The single begins with distorted vocal chops, which act as a siren song that leads into an alluring percussive beat serenaded by Starrah's sultry vocals. What follows are three wholly unique drops, each of which rumble with the pristine engineering and nuanced sound design for which both Skrillex and Four Tet have become globally renowned.

Listen to "Butterflies," Skrillex's first official release since 2019, below and find the track on streaming platforms here.
