Audio: Young Fathers 'I Heard'

Stream Young Fathers' trotting lullaby single "I Heard" off their upcoming TAPE TWO.


Young Fathers' latest single "I Heard" is a trotting lullaby showcasing the Scottish / Liberian / Nigerian trio's penchant for crafting pop hooks and melodies — a trait that's always been underlying in YF tunes. The track builds on a minimal percussion sample and falsetto vocals, eventually swelling into a lush melancholic wave. Stream "I Heard," the first single of the group's upcoming TAPE TWO (out June 11 via Anticon) below.
