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’.
