In January, producer-to-the-stars Emile Haynie finally announced the debut artist album he'd been hinting at since last summer when he dropped "A Kiss Goodbye," featuring Dev Hynes, Charlotte Gainsbourgh, and Sampha. Having followed it with lonely but luscious Lana Del Rey ballad "Wait For Life," Haynie tonight plays another ace: "Come Find Me" with Swedish popstar Lykke Li and The xx's Romy. It's the latter's curl-into-the-horizon guitar line that lends the song hope, cutting through Li's dreamy pleas and Haynie's gentle, piano-led production. "'Come Find Me' really fits into the story of the album," Haynie told The FADER. "Almost a reprise of the first song. Lykke has such a beautiful voice and Romy's guitar is a voice in itself." Listen below, and look out for Emile Haynie's debut album, We Fall, on February 23rd, via Interscope.
