    U.K. electronica trio Mount Kimbie has been relatively quiet since the release of 2013’s Cold Spring Fault Less Youth, but James Blake helped the band debut a new track, “We Go Gome Together”, last month and they’ve also launched their NTS Radio residency, which recently highlighted two new tracks from King Krule’s Archy Marshall.

    Now, Mount Kimbie has released a brand new song featuring Micachu (otherwise known as film composer Mica Levi). It’s called “Marilyn”, and it comes with a video by fashion photographer and filmmaker Mark Lebon.

    According to a press release, “[t]he clip is an intimate portrait of family life, compiled from home video footage shot by Mark of his sons Tyrone Lebon, who previously worked with Mount Kimbie on videos and photography for their debut album Crooks and Lovers, and Frank Lebon, who directed and starred in the recent ‘We Go Home Together’ video. A true family affair.”

    Mount Kimbie’s Kai Campos says of the release, “Couldn’t be happier to share a song we wrote with Mica Levi – this one’s called Marilyn. Mica’s work has been a constant source of inspiration for us and I’m grateful she wanted to sing on this one because as a singer and a lyricist I think she brings so much.”

    The press release also promises “lots of new music” on the horizon so stay tuned.

    Mount Kimbie previously announced a batch of North American tour dates, as well as a number of festival appearances at the likes of Sasquatch! and Latitude. They’ve now added more European tour dates, which will kick off in October.
