As much as you can theorise and be cerebral about the process of making music, the thing that's gonna excite you is always the thing that you're not sure how you came up with. "Shelter" has a lot of that. "Shelter" has a lot of elements to it that are magical that I don’t really understand how we came up with it, and all of our other elements I know very well how we achieved from a technical standpoint.

– Madeon[1]

"Shelter" is a 2016 single by American music producer Porter Robinson and French music producer Madeon. It was released on 11 August 2016 and is currently being accompanied by the Shelter Live Tour.

BackgroundEdit

The base of Shelter came together really naturally and kind of easily. Completing it was a lot harder for us because we're so prone to analysis and definitely perfectionists.

– Porter Robinson[1]

After the release of Adventure in 2015, Madeon and Robinson began discussing a possible collaboration, though it took them some time to meet and spend time together in the studio.[1] The former also stated during an interview with Daily Beat in 2017 that "at first, [he and Porter] started writing 'Shelter' with an attitude of being a little abstract about it".[2]

LyricsEdit

I could never find the right way to tell you
Have you noticed I've been gone?
'Cause I left behind the home that you made me
But I will carry it along

It's a long way forward, so trust in me
I'll give them shelter like you've done for me
And I know I'm not alone, you'll be watching over us
Until you're gone

When I'm older, I'll be silent beside you
I know words won't be enough
And they won't need to know our names or our faces
But they will carry on for us

It's a long way forward, so trust in me
I'll give them shelter like you've done for me
And I know I'm not alone, you'll be watching over us
Until you're gone

It's a long way forward, trust in me
I'll give them shelter like you've done for me
And I know I'm not alone, you'll be watching over us
Until...

Music videoEdit

An animated music video for the song was premiered in Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Japan and released onto YouTube on 18 October 2016. Though Madeon has stated that it was "entirely Porter's project", he also said he was "very excited" about watching it.[3]
