You heard it here first: Whethan is the official shapeshifter—or soundshifter, rather—of dance music.

And he's now breaking away in more ways than one. Whethan's latest single, "Fall Out Girl" (with Zai1k), is his first independent release in six years following a two-album stint with Atlantic Records. 

"Fall Out Girl" is an uplifting callback to the sounds of this dance music prodigy's past, from the playful sonics and youthful enthusiasm of his debut album, Fantasy, to the moodier, too-cool-for-school edge of its hip hop follow-up, MIDNIGHTAnthemic lyrics rasp above pumping house synths and a propulsive bass line while Zai1k's heady vocals send us along at a breakneck pace.

It's an electronic song at its heart, signaling that for Whethan, this next era will be a reimagined return to his roots.
