Little Dragon have joined forces with Moses Sumney on the new song “The Other Lover.”
The track features gorgeous vocal interplay between Sumney and Little Dragon vocalist Yukimi Nagano. It draws its lyrics from “Another Lover,” off Little Dragon’s album New Me, Same Us which was released earlier this year.
In a statement, Sumney gushed over the opportunity to collaborate with Little Dragon, whom he’s been a fan of for a long time. “As a teen, their first album impressed upon me just how infinite modern soul music can be,” he said. “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.”
On their part, 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.”
Sumney also released a new record this year, the double album græ, which included the single “Bless Me.”
