Having released their third album ‘Cocoa Sugar’ earlier this year, Young Fathers have now offered up their previously-unheard track of the same name.
Recorded as part of the same 2017 recording sessions which saw the Scottish trio pull together the rest of their third full-length - which also happened to win the Scottish Album of the Year Award this year - they’ve now shared ‘Cocoa Sugar’ as part of a special Double A-side single, which will also feature a David Wrench mix of the album’s ‘Border Girl’.
The single lands ahead of the band’s upcoming US and UK touring run, which will culminate with two huge shows at London’s Brixton Academy. Their upcoming shows are as follows.
09 Fonda Theatre, Los Angeles, US
10 The Independent, San Francisco Bay Area, US
11 The Independent, San Francisco Bay Area, US
14 Wonder Ballroom, Portland, US
