DIPLO Unveils ‘ULTRAMAN’ Featuring OLIVER TREE From New Netflix Film ULTRAMAN: RISING OUT NOW

June 14, 2024—Today, Diplo unveils a new track “Ultraman” featuring singer, songwriter and producer Oliver Tree—listen here and watch the lyric video made with real Tsuburaya action figures in the style of the original “Ultraman” 1960’s T.V. series and 1990’s toy commercials here. The song is taken from the soundtrack of the new, critically acclaimed animated film Ultraman: Rising, available to stream on Netflix today. 

Given the wide scope of Diplo’s sonic and cultural influences and his experience making original songs for blockbuster films—such as “Welcome to the Party” for Deadpool 2, Netflix tapped the Grammy-winning artist to create an original song for Ultraman: Rising. Diplo turned to his long-time friend Oliver Tree to work on their first-ever collaboration, which can be classified as “phonk,” a booming subgenre of hip-hop and trap music directly inspired by 1990’s Memphis rap. 

This summer will find Diplo playing shows all over the world, including festivals such as Bonnaroo and Electric Island in Toronto, several nights at The Wynn Las Vegas as part of his ongoing residency, a Higher Ground party in Istanbul and a Monday night Pacha Ibiza residency over the next several months—see full itinerary and get tickets here.

Additionally, tickets are on sale for Diplo’s Run Club, a series of 5K runs and afterparties coupled with DJ sets from Diplo and friends throughout—get tickets for inaugural runs in September in San Francisco here and Seattle here.
