Julien Baker has released a new song ‘Favor’ which features her boygenius bandmates Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus. The song is the third single from Baker’s upcoming third album Little Oblivions, which is set to be released later this month.
You can listen to the new track below.
“Julien is one of those people whose opinion you want to hear about everything,” Bridgers stated. “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.”
Dacus added “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 irreplicable. 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.”
‘Favor’ follows singles ‘Faith Healer’ and ‘Hardline’ in previewing Baker’s upcoming album which is set to be released on February 26th.
