Machinedrum, aka experimental club producer Travis Stewart, has announced the follow-up to his 2013 album Vapor City, sharing new single "Do It 4 U" featuring D∆WN. Entitled Human Energy, it's due out Sept. 30 on Ninja Tune, and includes collaborations with MeLo-X, Jesse Boykins III, Rochelle Jordan, and more.

In a press release, the now Los Angeles-based artist described the record as being inspired by "new age concepts," saying, "It's a healing experience. We're living in dark times and with so much negativity existing in the world I want to be a rare voice of positivity."

"Do It 4 U" sees the producer reuniting with the R&B singer and former Danity Kane member—they previously collaborated on the latter's 2016 single "Not Above That"—combining glitchy beats and warm, arpeggiated synths with her entrancing vocals to create a blissed out, transcendental banger.
