Thao Nguyen will release We The Common, her newest album of fractured indie-pop under her Thao & The Get Down Stay Down name, in a couple of months. She’s already shared early tracks “Holy Roller” and “We The Common (For Valerie Bolden),” but the album track that most of us were most amped to hear was always going to be “Kindness Be Conceived,” her collaboration with Joanna Newsom. As it turns out, the song is a sunny and stripped-back folk duet, with Nguyen and Newsom harmonizing simple melodies beautifully. Hear it below.
We The Common is out 2/5 on Ribbon Music.
