Julien Baker has released a new single, “Favor,” featuring Lucy Dacus and Phoebe Bridgers, from her upcoming album, Little Oblivions, out February 26 via Matador Records.
Both Dacus and Bridgers share their vocal talents alongside Baker on the track, which follows on from the previously released singles “Hardline” and “Faith Healer.”
Bridgers says about the collaboration:
“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.”
“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 irreplaceable.
“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.”
