BADBADNOTGOOD release song with Kaytranada

BADBADNOTGOOD release song "Lavender" with Kaytranada.

After recently announcing their forthcoming album IV and sharing its lead single, featuring Samuel T. Herring, BADBADNOTGOOD are back to share a new Kaytranada-assisted album cut. “Lavender” picks up where BADBADNOTGOOD and Kaytranada left off with “Weight Off”, the BADBADNOTGOOD-featuring song from 99.9% and explores even more alien-sounding sonic terrain.

Speaking about the collaboration, BADBADNOTGOOD said, “We made Lavender amongst many other songs and samples with Kaytranada in our home studio ‘Studio 69’. Kay started the idea as a beat with our drum breaks and some synth melodies. Then we recut the drums and synth to formulate a song with more sections. Kay came back to Toronto and gave us that hot lead melody as well as percussion and we all finalized the arrangement. It’s an incredible honor to call Kay a close friend of ours; he is a talent like no other.”

Its release comes on the heels of BADBADNOTGOOD wrapping a run of North American tour dates, which was capped off by a performance at House of Vans in Brooklyn with DIIV and Sunflower Bean last week.
