The Struts have teamed up with Paris Jackson for a new song.

Produced by Tommy English, Low Key In Love is an alt-pop duet that centers around the vocal interchange between frontman Luke Spiller and the 23-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson. Spiller said:

"Low Key In Love was written after a date in Los Angeles at 70's retro bar, Good Times at Davey Wayne's. I walked into the studio explaining that we needed the song to have the essence you feel when entering the bar and absorb the vibe. 

"When we decided to explore the idea of a duet, I thought back to that night and remembered that Paris played a brilliant acoustic set. Something inside was telling me that everything happened for a reason, so I decided to message her. I'm convinced some things are just written in the stars. Bringing in Paris just gave the song a whole new dimension and really brings the story to life. She is beautiful and brilliant. A star."

The track marks the latest music from the glam-rock band, following their 2020 guest-heavy third album 'Strange Days'.

Jackson put out her debut LP, 'Wilted', in December of the same year. She added: "I first heard of The Struts when I went to go see Mötley Crüe play their final set on New Year’s Eve night at Staples Center a few years ago. The boys opened up for them and I had no idea it was going to be as incredible as it was.

"I just remember turning to my friend and saying 'who the fuck ARE these guys!?’ I was so blown away by their talent, their stage presence, and their energy. It felt like I had time travelled and got to experience what rock'n'roll was at its prime, like with the Rolling Stones and Queen.

"I started listening to their music and would see them at events here and there, and we’ve always been pretty friendly online. When Luke asked to work with me, it was an immediate yes. It’s been a privilege and an honour to sing on a song that I know means so much to Luke, and I’m grateful for the friendship that has sprung from such a lovely project. It’s unlike anything I have ever done or thought to do before, and I’m here for it."
