Hardly Art

Today, Hardly Art’s Lala Lala and Basement’s Basement’s Baths have released “€ € € €^^%%!!!!!heaven!!!!!!”, a new single they co-wrote and produced. It is available now worldwide on all major streaming platforms, and as a limited edition clear flexi disc on Hardylart.com, Bandcamp, and Lala Lala and Baths’ webstores. Proceeds from their first month of sales will be donated to charity–see below for more specifics.

In a joint statement, Lala Lala’s Lillie West and Baths’ Will Wiesenfeld say, “This song was born of a mutual fandom between both artists. Ideas and responsibilities were evenly split as the production came together.”

“Lillie’s music is great and working together was an instant yes! The process was the most fun I’ve ever had collaborating even though we worked remotely,” added Wiesenfeld. 

Lillie writes, “I am obsessed with Will both professionally and personally. Collaborating was an extreme pleasure.”

100% of artists’ and labels’ share over the first month of sales will be donated between two organizations; Black Aids Institute, “the only premier uniquely and unapologetic-ally Black think and do tank in America powered by two decades of work to end the Black HIV epidemic and led by people who represent the issues we serve,” and Restore Justice Illinois,which  “advocates for fairness, humanity, and compassion throughout the Illinois criminal justice system, with a primary focus on those affected by extreme sentences imposed on our youth.” 

“€ € € €^^%%!!!!!heaven!!!!!!” follows Lala Lala’s 2020 releases “Legs, Run,” “Fantasy Movie” (with Grapetooth), and “Good for You,” a guest appearance on a new song from Porridge Radio. Baths recently released the full length Pop Music / False B-Sides II.  The cover image is by artist Caroline David.
