Belgian duo blackwave. is back with new music, and we couldn't be more excited!

On Thursday, the longtime Variance favorites dropped their latest offering, a sweltering single called "perfume," featuring American rapper Caleborate. It's a preview of blackwave.'s upcoming second album no sleep in LA, which is out Sept. 9.

"This song was written on a very early morning walk to Starbucks in sunny L.A.," says blackwave. singer-producer Willem Ardui. "I was up early, waiting for a phone call from someone on the other side of the world in a different time zone. I was completely inside my head, worrying about everything, thinking about wanting to get my life back on the rails, back in a rhythm. With every person passing me by on the street, everyone carrying with them their own smell of perfume, the words started coming to me."

He adds: "I remembered this moment when I was in the mall, contemplating if I’d buy some expensive perfume, and thinking to myself, ‘I don’t deserve this yet. When I get my life on track, that’s when I will buy this perfume.’ That setting of the morning walk, and the memory of being in the mall kind of set off the whole theme of the song."
