Borns Ft. Lana Del Rey – God Save Our Young Blood mp3 download
Borns and Lana Del Rey have linked up for this new single titled God Save Our Young Blood, which is one of the songs from his upcoming album Blue Madonna, out January 12th via Interscope.
The track finds Børns and Del Rey crooning about late nights and young love over gauzy synths and steady drums. The chorus of “God Save Our Young Blood” climaxes with a theatrical flourish as Børns and Del Rey’s voices combine to repeat the track’s euphoric, titular refrain.
In an interview with Beats 1 DJ Matt Wilkinson, Børns spoke about how Del Rey inspired “God Save Our Young Blood,” and came to sing on the track as well. “We met virtually before we met face to face I guess that’s how it is these days. the first time we met we FaceTimed and then I started doing a lot of collaborations with her sister Chuck who’s an amazing photographer,” Børns recalled. “Chuck shot all the photography for my album and we’ve been collaborating on some video projects and Lana was around and I showed her some stuff on the record. I really had her in mind when I was writing ‘Young Blood’ and I think subliminally I was trying to do background vocals that sounded like her I was trying to do my best Lana impression and she was like ‘I feel like I’m already on this song’ and I was like yeah that’s kind of what I was going for.”
Blue Madonna follows Børns’ 2015 debut album, Dopamine, and 2014 breakout EP, Candy. He’ll embark on a North American tour in support of Blue Madonna January 17th in Oakland.
