Not a bad way to close out 2018: slenderbodies on Wednesday released their new single "King."

The gummy new track arrived today along with news the California duo made up of Max Vehuni and Benji Cormack will release their SORAYA EP on Jan. 25. The pair had been teasing the project since earlier this year.

"'King' was written by taking a hard look at the way we create," the duo said of the new cut. "The song focuses on tough topics of self-doubt, need for validation from the world, and a desire to be great when creating. However, we realized that so much of our positive behaviors and gifts regarding creativity were instilled in us by the strong women in our lives. First our mothers, aunts, and grandmothers. Then later on romantic partners and friends. To have someone who says they believe in you and consistently shows it is a wildly powerful thing, and ‘King’ pays homage to that."
