Still in the clouds after releasing Season High in April, Little Dragon are back with new collaboration with Faith Evans called “Peace Of Mind.”
Originally recorded for Season High, the song was left on the cutting room floor, because “something was missing” and the Swedish group couldn’t decide what to do with it.
Thankfully, Raphael Saadiq was a phone call away and the legendary musician was more than willing to put his spin on it. From there, LD decided they wanted another female vocalist to handle the hook while Yukimi held down the rest. Enter: Faith Evans, who agreed to do the song after her children let her know just how dope Little Dragon is.
“It was kind of like a dream come true,” Yukimi told the LA Times. “I still can’t really get that it happened, and when I listen to the song I feel really honored to be on the same track as her.”
A true quiet-storm ballad, “Peace Of Mind” was released with an accompanying music video, which finds Little Dragon, Faith Evans and Raphael Saadiq recording the the song in Saadiq’s LA studio. Press play and vibe out below.
