Giraffage premieres “Green Tea,” a groovy collab with Body Language’s Angelica Bess Holy Mountain

Charlie Yin, the Taiwanese-American artist who makes bedroom EDM as Giraffage, is about to drop a new album. Called Too Real, the full-length (out October 20) was written while Yin was coming out of a bout of depression. It features vocals from Japanese Breakfast, plus lots of his signature post-everything production quirks. The songs sound personal, sultry, and hopeful.

Today, the FADER is premiering "Green Tea," for which Body Language's Angelica Bess contributed a terminally smooth vocal. "This one is probably one of the fastest beats I made for the record," Yin said in an email. "I literally made the beat in like, 30 minutes and then spent another six months trying to find the right vocalist. After a few iterations, I hit up Angelica Bess and had her try something over it, and she absolutely crushed it. The lyrics are about female empowerment, which I feel is a more important sentiment than ever at this point in time." Listen below.

Too Real comes out on Friday, October 20.
