Garrett Clark Borns, best known by his stage name Borns is starting the new year off right with the release of his sophomore album Blue Madonna. The new album is slated to be available January 12th via Interscope and fans have already gotten a good look at the record with previously shared tracks “Faded Heart,” “Sweet Dreams,” and “I Don’t Want U Back.” Today, the Michigan native is kicking off the new year with another shared track, this time with the opening single, “God Save Our Young Blood.”
The track features the hazy but dreamlike vocals of pop singer Lana Del Rey. “God Save Our Young Blood,” which features a mix of synth horns, pounding drums and horns, is all about late nights and young love. The chorus has both Børns and Del Rey combining their voices to repeat the track’s euphoric, titular refrain; “God save our young blood/ God save our young love/ Warm waves on the coast where we run/ God save our young blood.” The two mesh so perfectly together with their vocals that the track lends itself to repetitive listening.
Listen to “God Save Our Young Blood” below.
Blue Madonna is produced by Tommy English and will follow Børns’ 2015 debut album, Dopamine, and 2014 breakout EP, Candy. The record will be available to purchase on January 12th. Pre-orders of the upcoming new album are going on now.
