Toro y Moi collaborates with Kevin Abstract and Lev on 'Heaven'

With his eagerly-awaited new album landing in the coming months, Toro y Moi has now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from his forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Heaven' sees him collaborate with Kevin Abstract and Lev for the new release, and follows on from the previously shared lead track 'Tuesday' in previewing his new LP 'Hole Erth', which is out on the 6th September via Dead Oceans.

Speaking about the new offering, he said, "As a musician, you'll occasionally hear stories about these songs the songwriter said, "...Just came out of thin air." Or they were written in a matter of minutes or hours-- they just have a nonchalant magic to them. 'Heaven' was just that. It was my first day of the 'Hole Erth' sessions at Different Fur in San Francisco. I asked Grace Coleman, the engineer to open a random session from a batch of demos from my studio. Within an hour of opening the session I found myself wrapping a second verse and it occured to me I might have a song worth finishing. It was a moment of literally letting go of these songs and into someone else's hands (and computer) and taking on the song writer role fully, no thinking about production or the mix and just listening to my thoughts. I ultimately found myself writing about moments of processing and realizing that the journey of the musician is a constant practice, paying attention to one aspect only allows room for something to slip away. How does one make a decision when the options presented are all poetically polarizing?"
