Swedish pop greats Little Dragon recently released a collaboration with BADBADNOTGOOD and now they've announced their own new release, the Lover Chanting EP. It's their first release for Ninja Tune and will be out on November 9. The title track is out now, and it sees Little Dragon going in a heady electronic direction that sounds right at home on Ninja Tune. As for how this song came together, the band says:

It started with Fred searching for a wedding march inspired by a Swedish prog funk folk keyboardist called Merit Hemmingson”, explain the band from their Gothenburg bunker. “Erik got inspired by the track and started singing! After Erik wrote his vocal verses Yukimi got a bit worried about his lyrical abilities and stepped in to add her part on the song. Håkan flew to Germany to record a beautifully tuned clavinet. Once the clavinet was recorded Fred and Erik added their flavour with some drums and deep synth bass.

As mentioned, Little Dragon are opening for Gorillaz in Boston on Sunday (10/14), and they've also got some headlining shows including two sold-out Brooklyn gigs: Elsewhere on Monday (10/15) and Tuesday (10/16).
