Electronic duo Mount Kimbie, formed by Kai Campos and Dominic Maker, have released a previously unheard track called “Turtle Neck Man,” featuring the U.K.-based trip-hop musician King Krule. The collaboration came about during the recording session for Mount Kimbie’s most recent album Love What Survives, released in September of last year via Warp Records. The two acts came together during the album’s recording for the single “Blue Train Lines.” The artists have also recently shared the stage at Le Trainon in Paris, France, where King Krule joined Mount Kimbie’s newly formed four-piece ensemble at a sold-out show.
Mount Kimbie will embark on a North American tour kicking off May 11 at FORM in Arconsanti, Ariz. The band will travel through 12 cities in a month-long run, ending their tour at Boston Calling Festival in late May. King Krule is currently on a European tour in support of his acclaimed 2017 LP The OOZ, which Paste listed among last year’s best albums.
