After a joint North American tour, throwback soul singer Leon Bridges and psych-funk instrumental trio Khruangbin have joined forces for a collaborative new EP titled Texas Sun. The Texas-based artists will release the four-song collection Feb. 7 on Dead Oceans.
“We try not to have too much of an intention, because it gets in the way of what the music wants to do,” Khruangbin lead singer Laura Lee said in a statement. “If you just let the music do what it’s supposed to do, it will reveal itself. We tried to take that same approach with Leon. For us, it was opening up our world to have another person in it. But all of it feels like Texas to me.”
