serpentwithfeet and Ty Dolla $ign seem like they must have been destined to meet, gravitating celestial bodies of buttery voice drawn close like binary stars breaking binaries together. Brothers in sultriness, inquisition, and poetic mastery, the two singers now find themselves together—both geographically in L.A. and musically on serpentwithfeet’s first track since last year’s soil.

About “Receipts,” the new track out now via Secretly Canadian and Tri Angle Records, serpentwithfeet writes:

I began writing “Receipts” when I first moved to Los Angeles last summer. I was and still am mystified by the city - the mountains, the men, the hummingbirds. I played an early demo for Ty Dolla $ign and he asked to join me on the track. This song carries a lot of weight for me because it’s a snapshot of two brothers rhapsodizing about unforeseen romance. Ty is a huge part of my LA story so “Receipts” feels like a perfect document.

Watch out, Philly! Looks like L.A. is entering the ring to box you for the title of “city of brotherly love,” and this new track is a strong first punch. Listen to “Receipts” right now down below, and read about our love of serpentwithfeet’s last album on our Favorite 50 Music Releases of 2018.
