Atlanta’s Abra took to Soundcloud last night to release her new song, ‘Bacardi’. A rework of Lumidee’s breakthrough single, ‘Never Leave You (Uh Ooh, Uh Ooh)’, she flips the original into a lo-fi, DIY affair, full of twangy broken-sounding synths and muffled vocals. The track has a deliberately home-made quality to it, harking back to her early days with Awful Records with the singer and producer writing, “LETS GET BACK TO HAVIN’ FUN WITH OUR ART” on her SoundCloud alongside the release.

The track follows September’s ‘Novacane’ an equally experimental cut that she released as part of Adult Swim’s annual Singles Project. Abra is also set to make her acting debut in Sam Levinson’s upcoming Assassination Nation alongside IT‘s Bill Skarsgård and model Suki Waterhouse. Listen to ‘Bacardi’ below.
