Little Dragon + Moses Sumney = The Other Lover

January 2nd, 2021

“The Other Lover” sees Little Dragon team up with Ghanaian American vocalist/songwriter Moses Sumney—who released his widely acclaimed double-album græ earlier this year—with a track that showcases his unmistakable voice alongside the equally inimitable Yukimi Nagano, the two vocalists intertwined over a gently unfolding swirl of synthesizers, horns, and stripped-back percussion.

The track draws it’s lyrics from Little Dragon’s “Another Lover” taken from their latest album New Me, Same Us, released earlier this year on Ninja Tune. Entirely self-produced and recorded at the pioneering Swedish band’s studio, New Me, Same Us  saw the band go back to basics, falling back in love with their instruments: drums, bass, keyboards, harp, guitar and voice, to produce some of their most focused and best music to date. The album hit #5 on the Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart in the US, with Mixmag calling it “a futuristic record bursting with lush textures and elevated by lead singer Yukimi Nagano’s sublime vocals” and the Guardian finding them on “on deliciously soulful form”.
