"Shelter" is a 2016 single by Porter Robinson and French music producer Madeon. It was released on August 11, 2016, and was accompanied by the back-to-back Shelter Live Tour.
|“||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.||”|
Robinson and Madeon began discussing a possible collaboration after the release of the latter's debut album, Adventure, in 2015, though it took them some time to meet and spend time together in the studio. Madeon also stated that the song "has a lot of elements to it that are magical that [they] don't really understand how [they] came up with it, and all of [their] other elements [he knows] very well how [they] achieved from a technical standpoint."
