The single is the latest taste from dior’s upcoming third studio album ‘On To Better Things’, which is out on Friday (January 21) via 10K Projects. You can pre-order the album here.
‘thought it was’ premiered on BBC Radio 1 and follows last year’s singles ‘V12’, which features Lil Uzi Vert, and ‘let you’, which came out just before Christmas.
The new track is about being surrounded by people, fame and success but feeling more alone and unsettled than ever, sampling Semisonic‘s 1998 single ‘Closing Time’ along the way.
Dior last teamed up with Kelly and Barker for the 2020 single ‘Sick And Tired’, but has also appeared on Kelly’s Travis Barker-produced album ‘Tickets To My Downfall’.
Speaking to NME in 2020, dior said: “I want to become the Number One artist in the world, and I’m fully determined and obsessed with being the greatest. So I’m pretty sure next time we have a conversation, we’ll be talking about how I’m the number one artist in the world.”
In February last year, dior featured on Mike Shinoda’s new single ‘Happy Endings’, which also included UPSAHL and also appeared on a new version of Glass Animals’ 2020 track ‘Heat Waves’.
Discussing the choice to cover ‘Mood’, frontman Oli Sykes said: “I was quite familiar with it: I really love the track, and it’s so catchy as well. And it felt like we could do something a little bit more in our world with it.”
