boygenius, the collaborative trio made up of Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus, have surprise dropped their debut EP digitally, two weeks ahead of the physical release.

Back in August boygenius shared three tracks from their EP, "Me & My Dog", "Bite The Hand" and "Stay Down".

Baker and Dacus then went on to perform a few tracks from boygenius' EP at this year's End of the Road Festival.

Now their boygenius EP has arrived two weeks early on digital platforms to coincide with Baker and Bridgers' tour with Dacus, which kicks off on 4 November in the US.

Speaking about their collaboration, Baker explained, "When we met, Lucy and Phoebe and I were in similar places in our lives and our musical endeavors, but also had similar attitudes toward music that engendered an immediate affinity. Lucy and Phoebe are incredibly gifted performers, and I am a fan of their art outside of being their friends, but they are also both very wise, discerning and kind people whom I look up to in character as much as in talent.”

boygenius is out now digitally, with physical copies dropping on 9 November via Matador. Find out more on Baker, Bridgers and Dacus' tour plans.
