Little Dragon Launch New Album ‘Slugs Of Love’

Posted by

Little Dragon will release new album ‘Slugs Of Love’ on July 7th.

The Swedish group returned to their Gothenburg base to construct the incoming LP, completing 11 all-new songs in the process. Led by recently released JID collaboration ‘Stay’, the record also makes room for one more guest – Damon Albarn sings on ‘Glow’.

Discussing the process of building the new record, Little Dragon comment…

“we’ve been exploring different ways to collaborate and communicate. Dissolving patterns and making new ones. Nurturing our ability to curiously press down keys, to bang — sometimes hard sometimes gently — on different things, strumming strings, recording sounds and investigating the limits for how much or little a sound can be tweaked… Together we have developed, replayed, danced to, cried and laughed to this music as it has evolved forwards, backwards, sideways and all around, but now finally as a complete masterpiece… This feels like our finest work yet. We are very proud.” 

New song ‘Kenneth’ is out now, a colourful, vivacious, larger-than-life return backed by a cute animated visualiser.

 “It’s about friendship and love” the band explain, “and the dirt of getting caught in bitterness and taking the wrong turn mentally”.

Tune in now.
