Little Dragon Taps Denzel Curry & Twelve’Len To Take Their ‘High’ To Another Level

Little Dragon is almost ready to release their next set, Season High, and we're very ready to receive it. The singles so far, the sensual "High" and the house-like vibes of "Sweet," show that the album will be a different vibe than the Little Dragon we've become accustomed to. Speaking of different vibes, the quartet decided to hit us off with a changeup of lead single "High" with a little help from producers Michael Uzowuru and Jeff Kleinman and Florida upstarts Denzel Curry and Twelve'Len.

"High," a slow-burning, hypnotic groove originally, gets reimagined as a soft, piano-infused number at first, with Twelve'Len adding his own harmonies alongside singer Yukimi Nagano's airy vocals. But just as we think that this will be a chill affair, the drums kick in and a harder-edged beat drops just in time for Denzel to spit a fiery verse, literally. "Don't let my drink spill / I let my butt burn / I watch my wounds heal / Then watch the world turn," he begins before reminiscing on trials, tribulations and come-ups over the spacy, hip-hop influenced beat. Once he's done, the the mix slows enough to once again let Yukimi's vocal meander back into the foreground. The drums kick back in, though, issuing a return to the boom-bap that rides out the rest of the song, making this one an undeniable head-nodder.

Stream the remix as much as you'd like below (we guarantee you won't listen just once). Season High will be making its way to retailers on April 14th.
