Little Dragon have announced their new EP Opening The Door

Little Dragon have announced their new EP Opening The Door, will drop on September 16th on Ninja Tune. Ahead of the album’s arrival, the group have shared new single “Frisco” – a dance track about “renewal, letting out your full potential and moving with the wave of change and life.” Little Dragon’s most recent album New Me, Same Us is now available via Ninja Tune.

The band are also currently touring across the US and Canada alongside Leon Bridges, with shows still to come in NYC, Boston, Washington, Atlanta, Portland, Detroit, Chicago, Seattle, Santa Barbara and many more.

The EP also features “Stay”, a collaboration with respected East Atlanta rapper JID (signed with J. Cole’s Dreamville label who has previously collaborated with the likes of Joey Bada$$, A$AP Ferg, 6LACK, Ella Mai and Method Man). “We found out JID was a fan of our music and so started listening to his,” explain the band. “The feeling quickly became mutual. His writing and singing is so sharp and creative we had to ask him to be on a track!” The result is a sultry track that muses on the tribulations of being in a long term relationship, “showing your vulnerability and expressing your wishes to keep dreaming and growing with that person”

A second collaboration, and final track on the EP, comes in the form of “Peace” an ethereal, rhythmic song which features the acclaimed Swedish musician Stefan Sandberg, who contributes flute to the track. Speaking about the release of the EP, the band said: “‘Opening The Door’ represents being brave and moving forward into the unknown. Endless possibilities and embracing uncertainty. We have so much new music to share, and it feels like we are finally opening the door and releasing it out from our bubble and into the universe!”

The EP follows the release of recent singles “Drifting Out” (a triptych comprising three takes on a central track, with contributions from Kelsey Lu and renowned cellists Yo-Yo Ma and Jakob Koranyi), “The Other Lover” (a collaboration with Moses Sumney), and the release of their “New Me, Same Us Remix EP” which featured contributions from Midland, Octo Octa, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Ela Minus and many more.
