A week after Anderson .Paak’s “Tints” collaboration with Kendrick Lamar, his Free Nationals group has teamed up with Daniel Caesar and Unknown Mortal Orchestra for a new collaborative cut of their own, “Beauty & Essex.”
“Beauty & Essex” debuted on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 program, serving as the lead single from The Free Nationals’ upcoming studio album. Speaking to Lowe in an accompanying interview, the group revealed that their LP will most likely be self-titled and will also feature contributions from Mac Miller, Syd, Kali Uchis, Chronixx and others. This new single is currently available for streaming, though The Free Nationals have yet to reveal a specific release date for the record.
