After enlisting none other than James Blake for their comeback single ‘We Go Home Together’, Mount Kimbie are back and they’ve brought Mica Levi along for the ride on new track ‘Marilyn’!
Speaking of the collaboration, Kai said: “Couldn’t be happier to share a song we wrote with Mica Levi - this one’s called Marilyn. Mica’s work has been a constant source of inspiration for us and I’m grateful she wanted to sing on this one because as a singer and a lyricist I think she brings so much. We’re also announcing our EU tour which starts in October. Can’t wait to be back playing gigs every night with our band-mates Andrea and Marc. Lots of new music and new ideas for us so we hope to see you somewhere on our travels”.
The track is accompanied by a video from cult fashion photographer and film director Mark Lebon, best known for his work with Jean-Paul Gaultier and Vivienne Westwood. He captures his own songs Frank and Tyrone (the latter of whom has already worked with Mount Kimbie on videos and photography for their debut LP ‘Crooks & Lovers’).
Not only that, but Mount Kimbie have also announced a massive European tour, which kicks off in late October. After playing at Liverpool Music Week, they’ll head to Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham, Bristol and London before heading off around the continent for the rest of November. Tickets are on sale now.
