Skrillex Opens Up His Heart With His Newest Song, “Don’t Get Too Close”

skrillex don't get too close

With the release of ‘Don’t Get Too Close’ created with Lido and Bibi Bourelly, Skrillex demonstrates his softer side as he shows off the first track from his second studio album.

There are also vocals from Sonny himself on this ambient and soulful track. He uploaded the track on youtube with an animated Porcupine visualiser that appears as Sonny starting with a dialogue that prolongs throughout the track.

He sings,
“I’m on my PC, I see famous people, I think they’re like mе
So why aren’t we equal?”

The track appears to be one of the personal works of the artist and also justifies his statement of 2022 being the worst year of his life. Overall looking at everything it seems like the artist will be communicating with us more through his upcoming projects.

His first LP for the year titled ‘QUEST FOR FIRE’ releases this Saturday and features collaborations with Fred Again, Missy Elliott, Four Tet, Porter Robinson, Noisia and many more! A set teasing all the tracks was also played in his basement. It is evident, after listening to them, that the artist has once again outdone himself and given the world of music something new and innovative.
