Summer is officially here now, and LION BABE are providing us with a new soundtrack to the warm, sunny days.
After teasing us with the infectious first single “Endless Summer,” the NYC based duo have released their anticipated new mixtape, ‘Sun Joint.’
The 11-track mixtape is the duo’s first new material since their debut album, Begin, which was released earlier this year. The project invokes a feel-good, organic vibe with the band’s signature technicolor palette of sounds, including R&B, soul, funk, and electro.
Sun Joint takes LION BABE back to their most organic self, expertly showcasing the duo’s kinetic energy while providing a futuristic high-energy production. The mixtape includes feature from Junglepussy, Raury, and Angel Haze, and co-production from DJ Dahi.
The duo will kick off their first-ever North American headlining tour on July 1 at ESSENCE Festival, and travel to major cities across the country throughout the rest of the summer.
The mixtape is available for download at www.teamlionbabe.com and can be streamed below!
