The pair, who also happen to be a couple, shared photos on their respective accounts of themselves with their faces covered by anatomical hearts. Country music icon Dolly Parton also features in the background of the images, which Gordi captioned “12.2.21 :: somethin comin”, while Lahey wrote “Where’s Dolly? > Where’s Wally? Friday 12 February 2021”.
It follows on from previous posts on both Gordi and Lahey’s social media accounts, in which each singer is seen posing with a cardboard cutout of Parton. They simply captioned the images with “collab coming soon”, giving little away except that the new track will reference Parton in some way.
Set for release on Friday (February 12), it’ll be the first time the pair have teamed up for a song, and mark each artist’s first new material for the year.
2020 was a big year for Gordi, who released her sophomore album ‘Our Two Skins’ last June. Speaking to NME at the time of the record’s release, the artist – who also happens to be a junior doctor – said “I’ve spent the last eight years doing both music and medicine at a million miles an hour – it’s pretty nice for once to just focus on music”.
Meanwhile, Lahey surprised fans with a quarantine EP in May last year, comprising new cuts of pre-released tracks such as ‘Everyday’s The Weekend’ and ‘I Haven’t Been Taking Care Of Myself’.
