Electric Guest have unveiled their brand new single, ‘More’, lifted from their highly-anticipated third album and Atlantic Records debut, KIN, which will be available everywhere on October 18. ‘More’ is available now – listen HERE.
“We wrote ‘More’ for anyone who feels like they’re searching for something different than what our culture is selling,” says Electric Guest’s Asa Taccone. “It was written with the hope that no matter how dire, despairing or seemingly impossible living can be, we are built for life & built to feed our best selves.”
KIN is available for pre-order HERE and comes with digital downloads of ‘More’ and the album’s lead single, ‘Dollar’. The KIN album artwork is the creation of Electric Guest’s longtime friend and collaborator Elevator Teeth.
KIN marks Electric Guest’s first LP in two years as well as the duo’s first new music since Taccone earned a 2019 GRAMMY® Award for co-writing and co-producing Portugal. The Man’s worldwide hit, ‘Feel It Still’. Co-produced by Lars Stalfors (St. Vincent, HEALTH, Foster the People), the album sees Taccone and Compton pushing modern pop towards their own unique worldview, melding sunshine soul grooves and sugary hooks with ambitious production and subversive lyrical power.
In support of KIN, the duo will soon embark on their KIN WORLD TOUR, a massive global headline run with special guests Wafia, Petrie, Joanna, and Soleima – as well as taking in dates across North America and Europe, Electric Guest will play dates in London, Manchester, Leeds and Glasgow in December.
For every ticket to the KIN WORLD TOUR sold, $1 will go to Stand for Children, an organization focused on ensuring students in North America receive a high quality education, especially those from marginalized communities.

‘More’ follows KIN’S lead single ‘Dollar’ which arrived earlier this summer. The vibey, electro-pop single, ‘Dollar’, was named by Apple Music’s Beats 1 as Zane Lowe’s World Record upon its July release, accompanied by a memorable official music video – directed by The Lonely Island’s Jorma Taccone and co-starring a fully operational hovercraft DeLorean.
Electric Guest’s contributions to the modern pop landscape don’t stop with “Feel It Still.” Taccone and Compton recently joined forces with Carly Rae Jepson to co-write and co-produce “Feels Right (Feat. Electric Guest),” the only feature on the pop star’s critically acclaimed new album DEDICATED. Both extremely collaborative creators, Taccone and Compton have recent credits on tracks for artists including Cold War Kids, Amine, and Melvv.
