The Very Best

The Very Best have announced details of their second album Makes A King, as well as sharing a new track from it by the name of “Let Go.” Makes A King is scheduled for release on April 6th via Moshi Moshi, and features guest appearances from the likes of Vampire Weekend’s Chris Baio, Senegalese singer Baaba Maal, and Jutty Taylor.

“This time we really wanted to make a record that could be played by a band,” says Johan Hugo. “Something really organic, so there’s not as many electronic instruments on Makes A King.”
