It’s been 16 months since Jai Wolf’s last single, “Starlight,” in 2017. In the time since, he’s played major festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Electric Forest, all while selling over 25,000 tickets to his headlining “Kindred Spirits” U.S Tour. At the same time, Billboard named Jai Wolf one of Dance Music’s Top 100 Electronic Music Artists in the world for 2018. But we’ve still been missing his sultry tones.


Jai Wolf returns in 2018 with “Lost,” which he says is special to him because it “is the perfect bridge between my old music and where I want to go next.” Working with Chelsea Jade, “Lost” is an anthem for the those who maybe aren’t sure of where they are in life or where they want to be.

“Chelsea and I wrote this song as sort of an anthem for a generation of kids who feel disillusioned by the world around them,” said Jai Wolf. “Feeling lost is something that never necessarily goes away. Even when you might think you’ve found your way, your perspective might shift and you may feel lost again. This song is about that cycle and our desire to escape it.”

After such a long hiatus, “Lost” feels like the dam breaking. We’re excited to hear all the new music that Jai Wolf is bound to drop on us throughout the end of the year and into 2019. Listen to “Lost” below.

Jai Wolf – Lost [Lyrics]

You’re the mouth of the tunnel just before the dark
I’m the headlights speeding through the stars
And we’re lost in the spaces of who we are
And we move through the nights til we take it too far

Hold it together while we move apart
Let the landscape blur like a dying art
Driven by the energy in our hearts
We were built to be reckless from the start

And the light just flickers past our faces
Living in a dream cause we’re always wasted
Never stay still when we’re chasing places
And the light just flickers past our faces
Living out a dream cause we’re always wasted
Makin’ up our minds that we’re never changing

Cuz we’re getting lost and found, when we’re carried away
I feel it all around, even in our mistakes
And when we’re up, we’re down, in the evening space
We’re getting lost and found, when we’re carried away
When we’re carried away

The truth gets tired when we lie awake
So we dive into dreams that they can’t sedate
Breath in and out, to go all the way
Trip til we’re fixed in a higher state

And the light just flickers past our faces
Living in a dream cause we’re always wasted
Never stay still when we’re chasing places
And the light just flickers past our faces
Living out a dream cause we’re always wasted
Makin’ up our minds that we’re never changing

Cause we’re getting lost and found, when we’re carried away
I feel it all around, even in our mistakes
And when we’re up, we’re down in the evening space
We’re getting lost and found, when we’re carried away
Carry Me, Carry Me (X3)

And the light just flickers past our faces
We’re living out a dream cause we’re always wasted
And the light just flickers past our faces
We never stay still when we’re chasing places

Cause we’re getting lost and found, when we’re carried away
I feel it all around, even in our mistakes
And when we’re up, we’re down in the evening space
We’re getting lost and found, when we’re carried away
Carry Me, Carry Me (X3)
