Kali Uchis has linked up with Jorja Smith on her new track ‘Tyrant’, taking to her Twitter to announce that the new song will appear on her upcoming debut album. The track is described by Uchis as “a post-apocalyptic love song,” adding in the press release that the song is about “wanting to stay in the haze of puppy love forever and never face the power struggles, because that’s your only real escape from the cold realities of life.”
Uchis was recently featured on Gorillaz’s fourth studio album Humanz, but ‘Tyrant’ is her first new solo material since 2016’s ‘Only Girl’. Her debut studio album is expected to arrive later this year. Besides Jorja Smith, Kali Uchis’ forthcoming LP will also features collaborative cuts with Tame Impala architect Kevin Parker, the legendary Bootsy Collins, and Damon Albarn. Kali Uchis also told Zane Lowe that she just finished filming the video for ‘Tyrant’, which was shot in Paris.
