Three-time Grammy-nominated Hiatus Kaiyote rings in 2024 with their new single ‘Everything’s Beautiful.’ The song is the first new music from the band in two years and provides an early taste of a forthcoming project.
‘Everything’s Beautiful’ is a musical affirmation in celebration of life’s infinite possibilities. The hopeful single, mixed by Mario Caldato Jr. (Beastie Boys, Björk, Blur, Beck), is filled with beautiful licks of the guitar and the future soul collective’s signature bass sound that effortlessly ushers in Nai Palm’s lush vocals.
Nai shares about how the song came together, “‘Everything’s Beautiful’ is a testament to the importance of finding simple joy in your day. To me, my happy place is walking around exploring the world with my headphones. I wanted to write something very simple without complex, deep philosophical meaning like most of my writing tends to be. I wrote the vocal melody and general bass riff in a dream napping on my manager Scott Barkham’s couch in New York one day, and brought it into the waking world which is really hard to do for me. Initially, the dream hook was Berry Street beautiful, but I changed the lyrics when I developed it more with the band. It’s not the delusion that we live in a utopia out here on this planet, but rather about actively looking for the beauty, grace and joy in life.”
