Khruangbin and Leon Bridges Presents New EP ‘Texas Sun’
Houston trio, Khruangbin and Fort Worth solo singer, Leon Bridges have joined forces to present a new four-song EP called “Texas Sun.”
It will out on Feb. 7 via Dead Oceans in partnership with Columbia Records and Night Time Stories Ltd. But the title track is available on digital music platforms, this sun-kissed piece of Southern funk that perfectly blends Khruangbin’s musical interplay with Leon Bridges’ innate style.
“We try not to have too much of an intention, because it gets in the way of what the music wants to do,” Khruangbin bassist Laura Lee said. “If you just let the music do what it’s supposed to do, it will reveal itself. We tried to take that same approach with Leon. For us, it was opening up our world to have another person in it. But all of it feels like Texas to me.”
“Big sky country, that’s what they call Texas. The horizon line goes all the way from one side to another without interruption. There’s something really comforting about that. It all feels like a cross-country Texas drive to me. I hope that people can listen to it while putting themselves in that headspace. Some of my favorite moments listening to music are me by myself in a car—or preferably a truck—driving across Texas.”
