Mount Kimbie share new track 'Marilyn' featuring Micachu

Following an incredible response to their first new track in 4 years - 'We Go Home Together (feat. James Blake)' - Mount Kimbie return with another close friend and collaborator, the Oscar nominated Mica Levi aka Micachu, with ‘Marilyn’.

Kai from the band says “Couldn't be happier to share a song we wrote with Mica Levi - this one's called Marilyn. Mica's work has been a constant source of inspiration for us and I'm grateful she wanted to sing on this one because as a singer and a lyricist I think she brings so much.

We're also announcing our EU tour which starts in October. Can't wait to be back playing gigs every night with our band-mates Andrea and Marc. Lots of new music and new ideas for us so we hope to see you somewhere on our travels”

The track is accompanied by a video by renowned cult fashion photographer and film director Mark Lebon, who rose to notoriety in the 1980s for his work with high end fashion labels and magazines including i-D, Vogue, John Galliano, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Vivienne Westwood.

The clip is an intimate portrait of family life, compiled from home video footage shot by Mark of his sons Tyrone Lebon, who previously worked with Mount Kimbie on videos and photography for their debut album Crooks and Lovers, and Frank Lebon, who directed and starred in the recent ‘We Go Home Together’ video. A true family affair.

Mount Kimbie have also announced a European tour, which includes their biggest London headline to date at the Roundhouse. These are in addition to the band’s dates in North American in May and June with support acts Tirzah and Ash Koosha. Full dates are listed on the band website and tickets are on sale from 3pm BST on Wed 10th May.
