Ahead of releasing their new album, Judah & the Lion have teamed up with freshly minted Album of the Year Grammy award winner Kacey Musgraves for a dreamy new track called “pictures”.

The unlikely collaboration came together after frontman Judah Akers got a phone call from his mom.

“I had a really deep moment with my mom when she called me and broke down bawling about how hard it was to move from our family house. I kind of saw my mom as a human for the first time, and it made me really empathetic toward her. I wrote the song from her perspective and it came in a flood, in five minutes, right after the call. I needed to write it because I was heartsick.”

Judah & the Lion will release their third studio album Pep Talk later this year. No release date has been announced.
