The New York band Altopalo have teamed up with Bartees Strange for the new single ‘love that 4 u’. The track will appear on Altopalo’s upcoming album frenemy, which lands on September 23 via Nettwerk. Check out its accompanying video, courtesy of POND Creative, below.
Altopalo drummer Dillon Treacy said of the collaboration in a statement: “This joint is a diss track to ourselves. Every line in the song is a feeling one of us has had to the other and are all very honest feelings that we have talked about internally. We sometimes have a round table roasting where we’re like ‘hey, this thing that u do bothers me and imma letcha know about it.’ IDK if it’s the healthiest but it works for us. Also, Bartees with the guest verse is something we’ve never done and I’m so happy he contributes to the spirit of the song. The ride out at the end has always represented the coming together after an emotional conversation. regardless of what we say, we come together and know that our love knows no bounds and we’re always gonna be there for each other.”
Bartees Strange added, “I was really excited to contribute to this song because I believe in altopalo so much. They’re so bril. Also – I know how much they have been through as a band. So contributing a verse to a song that’s really about their journey to become closer was a gift.”
Bartees Strange released his sophomore album, Farm to Table, earlier this year.
