The Very Best x Vampire Weekend's Chris Baio, "Let Go"

A new album is out in April.
The Very Best Makes A King

On April 7, The Very Best will release a new album called Makes A King, their third overall and their first since 2012's MTMTMK. Earlier today the duo (Malawian singer Esau Mwamwaya and British producer, Radioclit's Johan Hugo) shared the latest single from the LP, "Let Go" featuring Vampire Weekend bassist Chris Baio. The Very Best are no strangers to working with Vampire Weekend, who mined the Afro-pop sounds TVB work with for their eponymous debut album. Back in 2009, VW vocalist Ezra Koenig led the soaring TVB single, "Warm Heart of Africa," a song that's still makes its way onto our annual summer playlists.
