It's taken from the pair's forthcoming collaborative album

Former Sonic Youth man Lee Ranaldo has put out several solo albums in recent years, and his next, titled Names of North End Women, is a co-creation with Raül Refree, who gave a helping hand to 2017’s Electric Trim. Above, you can hear new track 'Light Years Out' which features on the record.

Refree says that the album "began as playing with samplers and cassette players; as experimental music, musique concrete, poly-rhythms." Ranaldo adds: "We were mixing in all these strange analogue sounds from old cassette tapes, dealing with tape hiss; using very new technology and very old technology and mixing them together."

Names of North End Women, is out on February 21 via Mute
