At long last, Diplo Presents Thomas Wesley Chapter 1: Snake Oil— the producer’s highly anticipated country album that proves he can truly do it all.
Last night, Diplo celebrated the album’s release with a special edition of his livestream variety show “The Thomas Wesley Show,” featuring guest appearances from country pros Thomas Rhett, Zac Brown, Julia Michaels, Orville Peck, Cam and Jonas Brothers. Today, we’re treated to the full album, which boasts some familiar genre-bending tracks as well as new productions.
If you’ve been keeping up with Diplo’s country career, you’ll instantly recognize the double Platinum-certified single “Heartless” with Morgan Wallen, “Lonely” with Jonas Brothers, “Do Si Do” with Blanco Brown and “So Long” with Cam — and unless you’ve been living under a rock, most definitely the “Old Town Road” remix for Lil Nas X featuring Billy Ray Cyrus.
The album also includes brand new collaborations with Zac Brown and Danielle Bradbery, Noah Cyrus, Orville Peck and more.
Although the raving reviews are few and far between, country and dance go hand-in-hand in Thomas Wesley’s world. Diplo Presents Thomas Wesley Chapter 1: Snake Oil is out now on Columbia Records.
