Devendra Banhart – “Saturday Night”

Devendra Banhart – “Saturday Night”

Devendra Banhart, the wandering soul who was once at the center of the freak-folk universe, is returning next month with a new LP called Ape In Pink Marble, and we’ve posted his early single “Middle Names.” Today, he’s also shared the atypically synthy “Saturday Night,” on which Banhart warbles over what sounds like a slowed-down Casio bossa nova preset. It sounds closer to “Hotline Bling” than I’d ever imagined Devendra Banhart would sound. Listen to it below.

Ape In Pink Marble is out 9/23 on Nonesuch.
