CURRENT: Francis and the Lights – “Friends” [ft. Bon Iver & Kanye West]

Francis and the Lights and their big breakthrough earlier this year when Chance The Rapper enlisted them alongside Jeremih on Coloring Book standout “Summer Friends.” The group drops the ‘Summer’ on their latest single, which features a mind-boggling list of collaborators, a list that would make Beyoncé jealous. Bon Iver and Kanye West are enough wattage by themselves, but the song also features contributions from ex-Vampire Weekend member/producer Rostam Batmanglij, producer Ariel Rechtshaid, Cashmere Cat and Benny Blanco. For as many cooks as “Friends” puts in the kitchen, the returns are astonishingly cohesive and harmonious. Francis and the Lights have friends in high places, and with this latest single they put their connections to good use.
