Dirty Projectors – “Cool Your Heart” (Feat. Dawn Richard) Video
Dirty Projectors are releasing their new self-titled album in a few weeks. Dave Longstreth mostly eschewed vocal collaborators this time around in favor of playing his own voice against itself, but one exception to that is “Cool Your Heart,” a collaboration with forward-thinking pop experimentalist Dawn Richard. It was co-written by Solange, who Longstreth recently worked with on her album A Seat At The Table. The song comes towards the end of the album’s break-up and rebirth narrative, and the two of them duet about a new relationship blossoming from the ashes of the previous one: “Wanna be where you are/ You’re the right one,” D?WN’s expertly-controlled voice sings on the hook. It’s the fourth single we’ve heard from Dirty Projectors after “Keep Your Name,” “Little Bubble,” and “Up In Hudson.” There’s also a video for the track, which was directed by Noel Paul and Stefan Moore. Watch and listen below.
Dirty Projectors is out 2/24 via Domino.
