Odesza have shared a new song called “The Last Goodbye.” The song credits Bettye LaVette as a featured artist due to its prominent sampling of 1965’s “Let Me Down Easy.” Hear Odesza’s track below.

“This song was born out of the concept of trying to bring these lasting, defining musical pieces like the 1965 release of ‘Let Me Down Easy’ by Bettye LaVette into a modern and contemporary electronic setting,” Odesza explained. “The idea of bringing two worlds together, that at first seem distant, has always been something we’ve been drawn to. It was an absolute honor to be able to work with Bettye’s voice over the course of writing the track. She’s able to convey emotion with her vocal work unlike any other. To date, this has been one of the more fulfilling songs we’ve had the chance to work on as artists. We hope everyone who listens enjoys the track as much as we did making it.”

Odesza’s last studio LP was 2017’s A Moment Apart. In 2018, on tour in support of the record, fireworks from a pyrotechnics display flew into the crowd during their set at the Life Is Beautiful Music & Art Festival in Las Vegas. They later announced that they would be starting their own festival called Sundara.
