Yoke Lore team up with fellow artist NVDES to bring us a new dance-inducing anthem titled “Everybody Wants To Be Loved” where the duo tap into the emotional labyrinth that we navigate at the beginning of a relationship. The track is a contagious balladry where desire is suffused throughout the cascade of thumps. Stream below:

Speaking of the single, Yoke shared: “me and Josh [NVDES] run into each other in weird places. I’ve encountered him in random LA rooftops, Parisian cafes and German airports. Our collaboration is laced with some years of growth we’ve seen each other go through. I think the amount of time we took to let this song become a reality can be felt in its multifarious nature. It has a hectic drive that both makes you move and leaves you yearning. The song is about not being sure about your place in the romantic world. Do we have to play that game? And when we do who do we become? But if we don’t what do we miss? And all the changes we go through as we navigate those questions to build ourselves.”

NVDES commented: “‘Everybody Wants To Be Loved’ is about the angst of being human with the natural desire to share love in this volatile world.”
