The Real Ding
Julien Baker teams up with Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus on 'Favor'
With her eagerly-awaited new album 'Little Oblivions' set to land on the 26th February via Matador Records, Julien Baker has now returned to share her latest captivating preview, 'Favor'.
Following on from the previously shared singles 'Hardline' and 'Faith Healer', her newest delight sees her connect with fellow boygenius bandmates Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus to create a rich and atmospheric new stunner.
Speaking about their collaboration, Phoebe Bridgers said, “Julien is one of those people whose opinion you want to hear about everything. A true critical thinker with an ever-changing and ridiculously articulate worldview. Her music changes in the same way, and this record is my favorite thing she’s ever done. I’m sure I’ll think the same about the next one.”
While Lucy Dacus added, “We sang on ‘Favor’ in Nashville the same day we recorded vocals for ‘Graceland Too’ and a song of mine. That day had the same atmosphere as when we recorded the boygenius EP. Making music was just a natural result of being together, easy as can be but also rare in a way that feels irreplicable. I love the song for its stark but sensitive picture of friendship, what it looks like to recover from broken trust. Makes me think about how truth only ever breaks what should be broken, and how love is never one of those things. I’m always honored to be brought into Julien’s life and music.”
