Well, it’s about damn time! After they started teasing us way back in 2017 with single after single, New York-based duo Lion Babe have finally given us the news we’ve been waiting for: their sophomore album is on the way! Their upcoming set will be titled Cosmic Wind and it looks to show how much they’ve changed in the years since their debut album Begin. “Cosmic Wind is centered on transformation. Growth has occurred in our personal and musical lives, and you can experience that growth sonically, visually and lyrically in our new album. We have honed in our sound and aesthetic, and are embracing our love for soul and groove from past to present,” the duo said of their new project.
In addition to dropping album news on us, they’ve also finally given us a visual for their single “The Wave.” The song — which they dropped way back in April of last year — is an infectious groove with throwback vibes. It’s fitting, then, that duo takes us back to the groovy times of the ’60s and ’70s for the song’s video. Singer Jillian Hervey dons her best flower child apparel as she and a few dancers prance around against an everchanging psychedelic backdrop. While she makes it hot, her partner in crime Astro Raw keeps it cool while holding down the song’s groove on the bass. The song’s featured guest Leikeli47 doesn’t make an appearance in the clip, but her voice is heard as everyone rides the good-time wave until the song’s conclusion.
We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait to get our hands on Cosmic Wind. Luckily we won’t have to wait much longer as the album is set to arrive on March 29th. Get ready for what’s sure to be a funky good time by checking out the video for “The Wave” below and then stick around to see Cosmic Wind‘s out-of-this-world artwork.
