Julien Baker unveils new track 'Favor'

With her highly-anticipated new album set to land later this month, Julien Baker has now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from her forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Favor' sees her team up with boygenius bandmates Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus for the release, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Hardline' and 'Faith Healer' in previewing her new LP 'Little Oblivions', which is out on the 26th February via Matador Records.

Speaking about their collaboration, Phoebe Bridgers said, “Julien is one of those people whose opinion you want to hear about everything. A true critical thinker with an ever-changing and ridiculously articulate worldview. Her music changes in the same way, and this record is my favorite thing she’s ever done. I’m sure I’ll think the same about the next one.”

While Lucy Dacus added, “We sang on ‘Favor’ in Nashville the same day we recorded vocals for ‘Graceland Too’ and a song of mine. That day had the same atmosphere as when we recorded the boygenius EP. Making music was just a natural result of being together, easy as can be but also rare in a way that feels irreplicable. I love the song for its stark but sensitive picture of friendship, what it looks like to recover from broken trust. Makes me think about how truth only ever breaks what should be broken, and how love is never one of those things. I’m always honored to be brought into Julien’s life and music.”
