British four-piece Glass Animals have shared a new song, “Lose Control,” which is a collaboration with Brooklyn rapper Joey Bada$$, who is featured on most of the song and co-wrote it with frontman Dave Bayley. It doesn’t sound all that much like a Glass Animals song until Bayley adds his vocals towards the end. The song is available now digitally via Harvest and Wolftone and can be streamed below.

Bayley commented on the song in a press release: “I got hold of Joey’s mixtape back in 2012 and was hooked. A couple months ago I heard he was into Glass Animals so I got in touch, and when I was in Brooklyn he came by the studio one night. We’re both addicted to red vitamin water so we picked some up. Then I ordered some dumplings. Then I started playing him some sounds. Within an hour we had the beat and he was like ‘I’m ready.’ He got into the booth and put down pretty much the entire thing in one foul swoop…dude is so talented. Then I hopped in and did my bit. Then I ate my dumplings. Hopefully we’re going to do some more stuff together at some point.”

Joey Bada$$ was also quoted in the press release: “We were in New York and the session that was supposed to start at 11am, actually started at 11pm. I fuck with Dave heavy - we understood each other’s vibe straight away and worked through the night to create this fire. Nobody got hurt.”
