HITS Daily Double


Columbia’s Diplo has dropped his latest country project, Diplo Presents Thomas Wesley: Chapter 2–Swamp Savant.

The star-studded album is packed with collaborations with the likes of Sturgill Simpson, Dove Cameron, Morgan Wade, Parker McCollum, Sierra Ferrell, Paul Cauthen and Lily Rose.

“To prepare for this new Thomas Wesley project, I went back to my father’s house in Florida and I spent six months learnin guitar, gettin in touch with nature, working his boat when the shrimp were running on full moons at the trailer park,” said Diplo. “It all started in the swamps I was raised in. This is the greatest single piece of work I’ve ever done, I can promise you that.”

Swamp Savant follows 2020’s gold-certified Diplo Presents Thomas Wesley Chapter 1: Snake Oil, home to the sextuple-platinum single “Heartless” f/ Morgan Wallen, “Dance With Me” with Thomas Rhett & Young Thug and “Lonely” f/Jonas Brothers.

The album arrived on the eve of Diplo’s return to Stagecoach this weekend, where he’ll feature another installment of Diplo’s HonkyTonk stage and his annual “Late Night in Palomino” festival closer. He’s also scheduled to play a Wesley set 5/10 at Nashville’s Wildhorse Saloon.
