Hermitude – Spotlight (feat. Daniel Bedingfield)
It’s difficult to find a duo that has defined Australian music as much as Hermitude. Hermitude’s El Gusto and Luke Dubs have consistently kept evolution and experimentation at the forefront of their craft, paving new directions amongst the electronic, hip-hop and pop spaces. Out now, the pair offer a new single, “Spotlight (feat. Daniel Bedingfield)” via Elefant Traks/Nettwerk Records.
“Spotlight” is the first of four new tracks that will appear on Hermitude’s Pollyanarchy (Deluxe), a reissue of their 2019 Pollyanarchy album, which will be released on November 13 – exactly one year from the date of its original issue. Pollyanarchy – which hit #6 on Australia’s ARIA charts – emphasizes the duo’s knack for forward-thinking experimentalism. It highlights an evolved and matured take on the sound that pushed them into realms beyond what they’d explored in the past, aided by a list of guest collaborators including BJ the Chicago Kid and Buddy on “OneFourThree,” Vic Mensa who made his mark on “Dusk Till Dawn,” Bibi Bourelly, a co-writer on Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have My Money, Electric Fields, and Haiku Hands among others.
