German indie rockers Milky Chance recently released “Don’t Let Me Down,” their new track featuring veteran singer-songwriter, Jack Johnson.
Clemens Rehbein & Philipp Dausch of Milky Chance have apparently been fans of Johnson for a long time, saying:
“We’ve been listening to Jack Johnson‘s music since we were teenagers and even played his songs with friends and our first band projects back then. We met him for the first time in 2018 at a festival in Switzerland and then again at Sea.Hear.Now Festival in the US when he came and invited us to jam in the dressing room. It’s been a real honor working together with him on this song and we cannot wait to share it with the world.”
Jack Johnson also spoke about the collaboration:
“You end up crossing paths with a lot of great musicians while out on the road. If you’re lucky those encounters lead to friendships which lead to creating music. That’s how it was with the Milky Chance crew. Putting out a new song with some new friends is always exciting.”
Aside from the new song with Johnson, Milky Chance has been busy recording their recent “Stay Home Sessions” which you can watch here.
