Electronic duo Odesza have released their newest single ‘Higher Ground’ after it was mysteriously leaked online yesterday. The track, which comes from the duo’s new album ‘A Moment Apart’, features vocalist Naomi Wild and includes all of Odesza’s signature, hard-hitting percussion. ‘Higher Ground’ definitely seems like a track built for the summer season, and the leak doesn’t seem to have hurt the pair in terms of timing at all.
When asked about the new track, Odesza had this to say:
“‘Higher Ground’ came together in a special way for us,” say Mills and Knight. “We were on a writing trip out in Lake Chelan, WA when we first heard Naomi’s voice. We started adding rhythm and chords and everything just fell into place. It was one of those rare moments where the song felt like it wrote itself. This is one of our favorite tracks off the album and we’re excited to share it with you.”
