easy life have returned with the official music video for their latest track, “DEAR MISS HOLLOWAY,” featuring Kevin Abstract. The intoxicating claymation video was directed by William Child (Young Thug, Drake, 100 Gecs). The song received its first play from Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s New Music Daily.
Alongside the new track, the band announced their new album MAYBE IN ANOTHER LIFE… will be released on August 12 via Geffen Records. The project was teased recently by restless first single “BEESWAX” and is available for pre-order. This follows the band’s much-celebrated debut album life’s a beach.
A world-colliding collaboration between the BROCKHAMPTON front-man and the Leicester five-piece, “DEAR MISS HOLLOWAY” is a wistful, woozily West Coast ode to a love that wasn’t meant to be (Murray wrote it about a passing crush on a teacher: “maybe in another life, we could try to roll the dice, and get it right’”).
The guys first connected over DM, before Murray and Kevin met in Los Angeles and started playing each other their upcoming music. Abstract asked to cut a verse right there and then, resulting in a track that became—as Murray puts it—“the cornerstone of the second easy life album.”
He adds, “Kevin raps about expectations versus reality, choice, and regret. Thematically, ‘DEAR MISS HOLLOWAY’ opened up this whole world, and the desire for us as a band to create a world that was better than the one we inhabited at the time.”
The band recently wrapped their North American Spring headlining shows, including stops in New York, Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Boston, Montreal, Toronto, Chicago, Denver, Seattle, Vancouver, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and more. Next up, a busy summer of festivals, including Glastonbury (where they are confirmed to play the iconic Pyramid Stage), Radio 1’s Big Weekend, TRNSMT, and Japan’s Summersonic.
