Francis and the Light has emerged as a go-to collaborator for Kanye West, Frank Ocean, and Chance the rapper. The New York singer-producer contributed to Chance’s Coloring Book tracks “All We Got” and Summer Friends”, and also introduced Kanye and Frank to the prismizer sound featured on both musicians’ new albums.
Now, Francis has called on several of his A-list friends for a new solo single appropriately dubbed, “Friends”. Kanye and Bon Iver‘s Justin Vernon sing on the track and also appear in its heavily choreographed video. Ex-Vampire Weekend member Rostam Batmanglij co-wrote and produced the song alongside Ariel Rechtshaid, Cashmere Cat, and Benny Blanco.
