Skrillex Releases Creepy New "Red Lips" Video
Mon, 30 Nov 2015 14:36:59
Today Skrillex dropped what's being called his "most ambitious video to date," "Red Lips." An exclusive Apple Connect release, you can watch the video below.
The song is Skrillex's remix of GTA's cut of the same name, and the video was co-written, co-produced, and co-edited by Skrill as well. It features vocalist Sam Bruno alongside a handful of other name-drop worthy contributors (like acclaimed director Grant Singer) as well as a "hand-selected crew of award-winning names in the film industry who contributed to some of the most iconic movies of the past decade" (see full production credits below).
2015 has been a big year for the 27-year-old producer, who has worked with Diplo as one half of Jack Ü, raking in double Platinum status for the song "Where Are Ü Now" with Justin Bieber (a track that went on to bag "Best Collaboration" at the 2015 American Music Awards). He has also spent time in the studio with hip-hop artists Vic Mensa, The Game, and Big Grams, in addition to further production work with the Bieb (he produced six songs on Bieber's Purpose).
Prepare yourself for "Red Lips."
