Jay Som aka Melina Duterte has unveiled a new song via Adult Swim’s singles series. Titled “Simple,” the dreamy lo-fi song is the first we’ve heard from her since last fall’s collaborative EP with Justus Proffit, Nothing’s Changed.

Word on the street is that Duterte is currently in the studio recording her follow-up to 2017’s fantastic Everybody Works so it’s sweet of her to give us something to tide us over until then.
