Following the release of their new album ‘New Me, Same Us’ earlier this year, Little Dragon have shared new track ‘The Other Lover’, which draws its lyrics from their track ‘Another Lover’, and features Moses Sumney.
“When we reached out to Moses we didn’t know what to expect,” Little Dragon say. “What we received was very stripped down, with his beautiful voice. We jammed along and sent it back. It bounced back from his end with added horns and sounded beautiful to our ears. We are very proud of this.”
“I’ve been listening to Little Dragon for a very long time; as a teen, their first album impressed upon me just how infinite modern soul music can be,” Moses adds. “When they asked me to collaborate I was so honored and surprised (‘shook,’ as the kids say), that it took me a while to come around. They worked with me, egoless, to craft a new vision for their song. I’m proud of what we came up with.”
