Classixx and Local Natives are back with new song "Francesca", their second collaborative single of 2020.

The two groups united last month for "Weekends", and have today (3 December) returned with the second collaborative track "Francesca".

Discussing the new single, Classixx say, ""Francesca" is a song that we've always wanted to make. Bright poly synths, big resonant drums and an anthemic vocal stack. When Kelcey first sang the verse and chorus melodies softly at a piano, it felt like our opportunity to go for it. It took us a while to finish "Francesca". The framework came together quickly but we really took our time with every sound and section. I'm not sure if it comes across as a carefully crafted production, but I do feel triumphant when I hear it because it sounds just like the song we always imagined."

Classixx say of working with Local Natives, "These two songs were made as a collaboration in the true sense of the word. We met the Local Natives guys at a wedding in Mexico and immediately connected. They're such a vibrant live band and it was important to us that their musicianship and vocal harmony came through. The tunes were a group effort and it was a privilege to work on them together, it felt like being a part of a small community."

"Francesca" by Classix and Local Natives is out now via Innovative Leisure.
