Noise-pop duo Sleigh Bells may be working on new music with Diplo and Beyoncé. In a cryptic blog post on the Mad Decent site introducing his remix of the Sleigh Bells track “Tell ‘Em,” Diplo mentioned that he was recently in the studio with his partner Switch, Sleigh Bells’ Derek E. Miller and Beyoncé.
Though this combination of highly bombastic artists could be a match made in pop heaven, there is a chance it could fall apart before reaching fruition. In his blog post, Diplo seemed doubtful about the project, voicing some vague concern about completing the tune. Sleigh Bells tweeted about the collaboration earlier today and echoed that concern that it may go unfinished and unreleased.
Sleigh Bells certainly have more than enough to keep them busy while they wait to discover the fate of their team-up with Beyoncé and Diplo. The duo are set to begin a European tour in Oslo on Wednesday that will morph into a run of co-headlining gigs with CSS and Neon Indian when they return to the United States in April.
