Cosmo’s Midnight have dropped ‘Idaho’, the final single from their forthcoming album, today (September 10).
The duo’s second record, ‘Yesteryear’, hits shelves and streaming services on October 2 through Sony Music Australia. Previously released singles ‘Down For You’, ‘Yesteryear’, ’It’s Love’, ‘C.U.D.I (Can U Dig It)’ and ‘Have It All’ will also feature on the record.
‘Idaho’ comes accompanied by an official music video, which premiered overnight. Watch the clip below:
Per a press release, Cosmo’s Midnight state that “‘Idaho’ is a funky and laid back song about the ‘grass is greener’ syndrome.”
“The inability to be content about your current life. Sometimes you need to go explore an alternate perspective so you realise how good you’ve really got it. It’s ok to make mistakes cos we’ve got youth on our side.”
The duo enlisted Wollongong singer-songwriter Stevan to appear on ‘Idaho’. The up-and-coming R&B artist sings backing vocals on the track.
In June, Pat Liney of Cosmo’s Midnight spoke to NME about the group’s forthcoming record.
“We’re moving into a more organic sound and really doubling down on singing and playing guitars,” Liney said.
“Everything’s more performative and expressive, but keeping true to what we’ve built over such a long time.”
Earlier this year, Cosmo’s Midnight were commissioned to revamp the music used in triple j’s popular segment Hack. The youth broadcaster also arranged for Art Vs Science, Trials and a handful of other Aussie acts to re-write music for its segments.
