This week, Ellie Goulding curated a 40-minute mix as part of DJ Annie Mac’s ongoing Free Music Monday series. Following songs by James Blake, The Weeknd, and How To Dress Well, among others, Goulding closed the collection with an unexpected gem: the debut of “Because”, her new track with Skrillex.

Much like their previous collaborations, “Summit” and “Bittersweet”, “Because” is more melodic, atmospheric — even sultry — than the booming and wobble-friendly material we’ve come to expect from Skrillex. Listen in below.
