Prior to releasing their debut studio album FHNY on Nov. 10, Brooklyn-based indie-pop duo Fever High -- comprised of Reni Lane and Anna Nordeen -- sent one of the album’s tracks to their friend, actor and jazz singer Jeff Goldblum, with a simple request: “Improvise something.”
“To my delight, he sent us an eight-minute rant of hilarious anecdotes about bad advice he’d been given in his career,” Lane tells Billboard.
The song is, ironically, titled “Good Advice,” and bits and pieces of Goldblum’s rant wound up on the final version of the three-and-a-half-minute track. Goldblum’s short rant touches on indigo shirts and Fiddler on the Roof, among other things. The duo was so impressed by Goldblum’s addition that not only did he get a featured credit on the song, but Fever High chose it as their lead single from the set.
