BADBADNOTGOOD reunites with Samuel T. Herring on “I Don’t Know”

It’s the last track to surface from the band’s IV sessions.

Lately, Toronto jazz quartet BADBADNOTGOOD has been generous with putting out unreleased tracks. "I Don't Know" show them reconnecting with Future Islands frontman Samuel T. Herring who previously collaborated with them on the popular IV single “Time Moves Slow.” While that soulful tune embodied an "acrimonious breakup," this one is about the hardship of coping with the loss of a loved one and learning how to move on.

According to a press release, the contemplative track was created during the band's recording sessions for their full-length album IV. BADBADNOTGOOD drummer Alex Sowinski described the song as a "deeply meaningful and poetic piece coming from a beautiful honest soul" in a post on Instagram.
