Cold War Kids release their new track “So Tied Up” (Los Feliz Blvd) FT. Bishop Briggs today- check out the live acoustic studio session video featuring Nathan Willett and Bishop Briggs.

“Pulling this session together was something of a miracle,” says Willett. “We were between tours and I hadn’t actually met Bishop in person and the band hadn’t worked out any arrangement. We had like 2 hours. Luckily Bishop was so confident and her voice is perfection; the voice of a woman twice her age, so raw and sophisticated … I sorta laid in the cut and watched her explode. This is as fun as it gets – working so loose in a pinch, everybody flexible and down to mess around – and the greatest moments happen. By evening the strings capped off what is now one of my favorite CWK recordings.”

“(Briggs’) voice spars beautifully with that of CWK frontman Nathan Willett…” says Consequence of Sound. “What’s perhaps most fascinating is watching the pair talk through the arrangement, each offering and taking advice.”

The band is currently on a North American headline tour and will also join Young The Giant on the “Home of the Strange Tour,” beginning August 2nd in Louisville, KY. The run will include a performance at Central Park SummerStage and continue on through the end of September. Full itinerary and tickets for all shows are available at coldwarkids.com.

Coming on the heels of 2014’s Hold My Home – which featured the chart-topping, Gold-certified single “First” – the band felt emboldened to bring a more deliberate, purposeful spirit to their music than ever before. Produced by their repeat collaborator Lars Stalfors (Health, Local Natives), LA Divine opens with lead single “Love Is Mystical,” praised by NME for taking the band’s “rousing and soulful anthemics to new heights,” The single held the No. 1 spot for Most Increased Plays at AAA radio for two consecutive weeks and is already in the Top 5 of the Alt 18 Countdown and Top 10 at Alternative and AAA radio. The song already has more than 3.5 million Spotify streams and jumped into both Spotify’s U.S. and Global Viral charts.
