In a new interview with Ryan Seacrest, Justin Bieber announced that he would not only be releasing a new single on August 28th entitled “What Do You Mean,” but also that this track, and the rest of his album, would land in the same vein as “Where Are Ü Now” – the hybrid EDM/pop tune that has been making serious waves.
The album will feature heavy production help from half of the Jack Ü duo, the well-loved king of American EDM, Sonny Moore aka Skrillex. The two seemingly can’t get over each other, though, showing an absolute outpouring of support for one another in various interviews. But this latest word from the baby-faced pop idol hints at more production help from Skrillex than initially expected.
“Skrillex is a genius, he’s super futuristic and I just love his sound, so being able to incorporate that sound with what I’m doing has been super cool because it’s new and fresh and I feel like no one’s done it before.”
In the meantime, check out the self-titled Jack Ü album below… it seems that it will serve as a very good preview for what Bieber & Skrill’s new collaborative efforts might sounds like.
