Today Lala Lala and WHY? released the music video for their new collaborative single “Siren 042.” Watch the video, which premiered this morning via The FADER, above. “Siren 042” follows the September release of Lala Lala’s critically acclaimed album The LambOf the collaboration, Lala Lala’s Lillie West says, “Yoni [Wolf] once talked me down when we were on the the strongest LSD of my life and I claimed to be ‘drowning in a river of sadness.’ I text him when I’m sick. Is he my life coach? Seems that way. I am a WHY? super fan and making this song was a dream come true. I hope to trick him into letting me into his home and more collaboration soon.”
