What the recordings will be used for is currently unknown. However, Incubus recently announced their return with new single ‘Nimble Bastard’, which is taken from their forthcoming eighth album ‘8’. While the tracklist of ‘8’ has yet to be officially confirmed, Skrillex is believed to feature on one of the album’s songs.

Speaking about ‘Nimble Bastard’ recently, Einziger elaborated on the creative process behind the new track.

“This song actually came very late in the process of writing new music for our new album that we have coming out very soon,” he said. “We’re just about done actually and it just kind of happened in the studio and we were messing around with this musical idea and the next thing we know we had a song.

“Brandon wrote the lyrics and it’s kind of a narrative about someone who overcomes the harshest of circumstances and always ends up landing on their feet. It’s a really fun and energetic song.”
