Launder has shared a new song, ‘Become’, which features lead vocals from Soko. It’s taken from Launder’s upcoming full-length debut, Happening, which arrives on July 15 via Ghostly and includes the early singles ‘Chipper’ and ‘Unwound’. Listen below.
“This is the most collaborative track on the record,” Launder’s John Cudlip said in a statement about the song, which was co-written with Jackson Phillips (Day Wave) and Zachary Cole Smith (DIIV). “I couldn’t have made this song what it is by myself.”
Soko elaborated: “’Become’ is about being stuck in situations where you know you deserve better, but it still drags you down. And you know deep down that to become your best self you have to break through thick layers of detangling old patterns and live with intention. Become the majestic lion you know you are… It’s also about the duality of anxiety: being stuck between feeling small and wanting to break free.”
