Bear Mountain have been gaining rightfully earned attention following the release of its 2013 debut, XO, which was preceded by a standout performance at SXSW months prior. Now, the Canadian indie pop outfit has shared "On My Own," the latest single from the band's sophomore album, Badu (due Sept. 9), exclusively with Billboard.
The track was written in collaboration with chart-topping artist Nelly Furtado and explores the nature of post-partying breakups and fights that often occur publicly. Frontman Ian Bevis approached Furtado last year not only to show her new material of his own, but also in hopes of working on a track together -- an idea she was receptive to.
"It was a great vibe/connection," Furtado tells Billboard.
