Grammy-nominated Little Dragon have announced their long-awaited new album 'Season High', out April 14th on CD & digitally via Because Music. In addition, standard vinyl & limited edition white vinyl (only available from independent record stores) will be available May 19th. This is the first new music from the band since their acclaimed 2014 album 'Nabuma Rubberband'. Having previously shared a first taste of the new material in the form of 'High', today the band have shared another track from 'Season High'; 'Sweet', a saccharine-induced dance floor number framed by lead singer Yukimi's lush vocals, can be viewed HERE.
Discussing the process behind recording 'Season High', Yukimi muses, "We have grown through the years but the making of this album has been a struggle. As much as our band is based on a deep friendship, we are four strong wills who find it really frustrating to compromise. We have gotten better at that though, but it's still a real battle. It gets harder and harder for us to make records but we still love it. Sometimes it feels like we have 100% passion and life or death emotions yet there's a pointlessness with everything. We want to exist in our own bubble where we can stay curious about sounds. The magic feeling that sounds can sprinkle over any boring day is what got us all hooked, that feeling of escapism… Maybe because Gothenburg is a grey place for most of the year, our curse and blessing is that we never quite succeed."
