PinkPantheress and WILLOW have teamed up for Where you are, a track that captures the feeling of having your heart broken. The track, which was written with Skrillex and Mura Masa, features a sample of Paramore's 2005 track Never Let This Go - fitting, given that track is all about a one-sided relationship.
The pair take turns singing the verses on Where you are, before combining for the pre-chorus and chorus. The longing in PinkPantheress' voice as she sings "I know that I could work with maybe's/Please tell me that you want to meet again" is palpable, and her softer, silky vocals combine well with WILLOW's louder, impassioned delivery.
Speaking about the collaboration, PinkPantheress reveals, "I had a lot of fun writing this song. It took loads of attempts to get it right but this is probably my proudest work to date, and I’m super happy for everyone to hear it.”
PinkPantheress has previously spoken about her love of Paramore, telling the BBC that she was inspired to start making music after seeing Paramore at Reading Festival. Before she began making music as PinkPantheress, she was in a band as a teenager that covered tracks by Paramore, My Chemical Romance and Green Day.
She told the BBC, "I was 15, right at the barrier and Hayley Williams just looked like she was enjoying herself so much. Then I realised she's getting paid on top of that! I was like, 'I want to do this.' It changed my perspective." The track samples guitar from Never Let This Go, with PinkPantheress, Skrillex and Mura Masa's production bringing together UK garage and pop-punk elements. It's a potent combination.
