‘Over Now’ follows Harris’ latest track released under his Love Regenerator moniker last month (July 17), ‘Live Without Your Love’.

The producer and DJ began releasing music under the new name earlier this year. At the time, he said he wanted to “rediscover the way I originally began producing music 22 years ago before I ever thought about how it might be perceived by outside forces”.

‘Live Without Your Love’ features the vocals of The Internet’s Steve Lacy. Harris added he wanted the project to be comprised of “just pure fun and experimentation with what sounded good to me”.

Tesfaye is still set to perform at the MTV VMAs next week, with six nominations to his name, despite some recently announced “last minute” changes to the awards ceremony.
