Kanye West teaming up with Bon Iver and Francis and the Lights has been a lethal combination in the past, and the trio is at it again. Francis made his new single widely available Tuesday (Sept. 3) with the release of the heavenly "Take Me to the Light," featuring Yeezy and Justin Vernon.

The angelic collab feels as if it could've existed 30 years ago. West delivers a soothing chorus on the starry tune. "And you still take me to light/ You still take me to light/ And the stars will align (every time)/ You ain’t lying," he half-sings.

"Take Me to the Light" enlists an all-star lineup of collaborators on the production side, which includes contributions from Benny Blanco and Cashmere Cat, as well as frequent Yeezy collaborators like composer Caroline Shaw, producers Jeff Bhasker, Noah Goldstein and BJ Burton.

Francis and the Lights most recently joined forces with Kanye and Bon Iver for Farewell, Starlite!'s "Friends" back in 2016. Listen to "Take Me to the Light" below.
