“Tongue Kissing” is out via Ninja Tune

Little Dragon is back with their new single “Tongue Kissing.” A glittering and quirky electro-pop track that welcomes a swarm of instruments, warm synths, and intricate sounds to spark unique magic and properly usher in their much-awaited new era.

The release arrives with news the Swedish four-piece will embark on a massive 2020 tour across Europe and North America. March sees dates across the pond before the band makes a major return to D.C.’s 9:30 Club on April 15th. Dates in Brooklyn, Boston, Chicago, LA, and many more follow throughout May – see the full run below and buy tickets here.


“Tongue Kissing” follows Little Dragon’s Lover Chanting EP – a short but sweet exploration of the force and ecstasy of love – with front-woman Yukimi Nagano adding the new track is “very much about taking brave steps… facing your own demons and tongue kissing with life in a way.” Listen below.


Little Dragon fans know their shows are never quite the same, especially given the band’s expansive five albums and growing list of diverse collaborations with everyone from Gorillaz and SBTRKT to Flume, Mac Miller, Big Boi, and more.
