Glass Animals Freaq Erykah Badu's "The Healer" On Mesmerizing New Single "Gold Lime"
This Sunday, August 9th, UK r&b futurists Glass Animals will rock at NYC’s SummerStage in Central Park before thousands of head-nodding, foot-screwing folks. But before they take the stage, they’ve conjured up one helluva blend for their latest single “Gold Lime,” which is more studio mash than album cut, I’d say. The quartet plays DJ on this one, covering Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ “Gold Lion” but complimented by a live rehash of our very own Erykah Badu‘s Madlib-produced ode “The Healer,” making sonic ends meet in the place you’d least expect. So if you’ve been searching for a ZABA chaser, this here should do the trick and provide you with the vibes to carry through the Hump Day funk. Listen to Glass Animals’ mesmerizing and lovely new cut “Gold Lion” below and catch their set this weekend with Taylor McFerrin and The Battlefest League Dancers if you happen to find yourself in our neck of the woods with a hunger for jet-aged r&b stylings. Grab a copy of their debut ZABA on iTunes today and hold tight for the next batch of genre-destroying sonics.
