Chicago-born artist Ravyn Lenae has teamed up with Steve Lacy for a new single called ‘Skin Tight’. The collaboration, which was recorded in Los Angeles, arrives with an animated video directed by London-based visual artist Zongbo Jiang. Check it out below.
“I wanted to snap people into my world through the sonics, so they can feel how I’ve felt over the past couple of years…” Lenae said of the new song in a statement. “It has those hypnotic elements, but it’s very simple, familiar, and fresh. Thematically, it’s about not being in a relationship with somebody, but still having those physical and mental ties. It speaks to sharing kinetic energy with another person, even if time has passed and you aren’t together anymore.”
‘Skin Tight’ follows Lenae’s 2020 tracks ‘Today’ and ‘Rewind’. Her EP Crush came out in 2018.
