With both acts returning this year with sensational studio albums, Little Dragon and Moses Sumney have now joined forces on a very special collaboration.
The new single 'The Other Lover' sees Sumney share vocal duties with Little Dragon's Yukimi Nagano to create a wonderful swirl of sweeping synthesisers, vibrant horns, and peaceful, stripped-back percussion.
Speaking about the collaboration, Little Dragon said, “When we reached out to Moses we didn’t know what to expect. 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".
While Moses Sumney added, “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. 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.”
