Canadian alt-folkers The Sadies have been joined by Kurt Vile on 'It’s Easy (Like Walking)'. The track is the second single to be released from 'Northern Passages', their 10th studio album, which is released on February 10, 2017 through Yep Roc Records.
Vile, taking lead vocals in place of Dallas and Travis Good, offers a low-key, but impressive presence, augmented by shimmering psychedelic guitars from the Toronto quartet.
Dallas Good says: “Kurt did a tour supporting The Sadies about a thousand years ago. We didn't really know each other before that but we've been friends ever since. We always talked about collaborating one day so I forced his hand by sending him this finished song with a very short deadline attached. He delivered, as he always seems to do.”
