Khruangbin & Leon Bridges announce collab EP (listen to “Texas Sun”)
Texans Khruangbin and Leon Bridges spent a lot of time together on tour in 2018, and they're continuing that friendship with a new collaborative EP, Texas Sun, that'll be out February 7 via Dead Oceans / Columbia Records / Night Time Stories Ltd. “We try not to have too much of an intention, because it gets in the way of what the music wants to do,” says Khruangbin's Laura Lee. “If you just let the music do what it’s supposed to do, it will reveal itself. We tried to take that same approach with Leon. For us, it was opening up our world to have another person in it. But all of it feels like Texas to me.” It's definitely a natural fit, with Leon's soulful vocals sitting warmly against Khruangbin's psychedelic grooves. You can listen to Texas Sun's lightly twangy, magic hour vibe title track below.
Leon Bridges plays this weekend's Intersect Festival in Las Vegas, and can also be seen in The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show. Khruangbin, meanwhile, are currently on tour in Europe. Khruangbin dates are listed below.
