Garrett Clark Borns, who stylizes his name as Børns (which means "Children" in Danish), is making a big splash today with his collaboration featuring Lana Del Rey on "God Save Our Young Blood."
The Michigan-born indie pop artist is looking for 2018 to be a breakout year. He is expected to release his sophomore album, Blue Madonna, and head out on a 20+ date headlining tour of North America in January and February with many of those concerts currently sold out from primary ticket sellers.
"God Save Our Young Blood" features Børns and Del Rey trading smokey vocals, supported by heavy synths and samples. The ambient verses and anthemic chorus are in line with where the newest wave of electronic synth-pop artists like Beck and the xx left off in 2017.
Blue Madonna is scheduled to be released on January 12. Pick it up on Amazon.
