BADBADNOTGOOD dropping a new record is always a cause for celebration. Be it members' solo work or the group's collaborations with the likes of Tyler, the Creator, MF Doom, Kanye, Drake, Rihanna, BADBAD's blend of seductively crafted instrumental hip hop jazz has had us melting since the foursome dropped its self released, self titled 2011 debut. Since then, the band has released two more albums and a collaboration with Wu-Tang's Ghostface Killah. Now, the Innovative Leisure affiliated group is back with its fourth studio album IV, which features collaborations with Mick Jenkins, Kaytranada, and this cut featuring fellow resident of 'The 6', Charlotte Day Wilson. Getting its first spin from Benji B on BBC Radio 1, i-D is pleased to share "In Your Eyes."

"'I can see it in your eyes'" said Leland Whitty as he popped his plug in the mouth, took the bag and ran… our collab with Charlotte Day Wilson came together in the wondrous 'Studio 69.' We were booked to share the stage in Los Angeles for a Red Bull event and decided we should get in the lab and hang. I went to high school with Charlotte and at the time wasn't aware of her incredible singing and songwriting talent. She was playing sax sitting in the chair next to the drums and said to me 'damn you got swag son.' Ever since we've been making heat in the lab and are planning to get back and keep crafting hit rekkids!" says Alex Sowinski.

IV is out July 8 via Innovative Leisure
