“Starting our album off with this track is important to us because Cam being the New York legend that he is, is a perfect representation of the trajectory of our career, beginning as purely hip hop producers and moving into dance music," said The Knocks' J. Patt of the glitzy lead single in an email to The FADER. "We feel that his verse on our record stands up to some of his best work and we are very proud to showcase this collaboration as one of our most prized achievements.”

In addition to the Dipset don, The Knocks' 55 will also feature's contributions from Carly Rae Jepsen, POWERS, Matthew Koma, Wyclef Jean, X Ambassadors, Alex Newell, Justin Tranter, Magic Man, Phoebe Ryan, and Walk The Moon; it's expected to arrive early January via Big Beat/Neon Gold.
