Fred Again.. Teases Music With Skrillex

Skrillex fans may be in for a treat! A Skrillex collaboration could be in the superstar producer’s wide-ranging trove of unreleased music, as a brief teaser clip of one such collab was originally posted on Fred Again..’s Instagram. The clip features the two artists cooking up a spicy new trap tune with no word on a release date. However, at the very least, it is still encouraging to see Skrillex in seemingly good spirits.

Meanwhile, the British singer-songwriter Fred again.. continues to court mainstream attention as he rides high on the back of his scintillating ‘Actual Life 2’ album. He has been smashing it with the festival circuit. The record producer has also been nabbing high-profile production credits alongside the likes of Swedish House Mafia and Ed Sheeran.
