Baby, it’s cold outside and Free Nationals have treated us to the perfect addition to our cuddle weather soundtrack. With the assistance of The Internet’s frontwoman Syd, their latest single “Shibuya” details the desire to do nothing more than lay up with the one you love. Over a soulful track punctuated with a sickening bass line and vibrant horns, in her sweet and signature tone Syd sings, “I can make you breakfast in the morning / Time well spent, it’s way too overdue / Drinkin’ like we know where this is going / Now, I’m gon’ be all hungover you.”
This latest single marks the fifth from their much-anticipated, self-titled debut album. The 13-track project is set to drop on December 13th and includes an impressive line-up of featured artists such as T.I., Benny Sings and, of course, their superstar bandleader Anderson .Paak. Their previous offerings – “Beauty & Essex,” “Time,” “On Sight” and “Eternal Light” – solidified the fan base of this four-piece musical machine, and we can’t wait to hear more.
