'Last Year Was Weird, Vol. 2' follows the first instalment in the EP series, which came out in 2018

Tkay Maidza has signed to 4AD and announced a new EP, titled Last Year Was Weird, Vol. 2.

The eight-track EP, which follows on from the Australian artist's 2018 EP Last Year Was Weird, Vol. 1, includes collaborations with JPEGMAFIA and Kari Faux, who features on 'Don't Call Again'. You can watch a video for that track above. 'Shook', another track from the EP, previously featured in our round-up of May's best music.

"'Don't Call Again' is the conversation I wish I could have had in my relationships over the past few years (both romantic and non-romantic)," Maidza says of her new track. "Standing up for yourself can be tough when you're so close to something. When we completed the track, I always felt Kari would be perfect for it because she keeps it so real when she's talking relationships. Glad we got to do a track together mid-pandemic."

4AD will release Last Year Was Weird, Vol. 2 on August 7, 2020.
