The Jungle Giants have teamed up with Renee for their latest single Rakata.” With lyrics in both English and Spanish, the track “showcases the universal language of music”. “Rakata” is a love letter to Mexico, the people there, and the adventures The Jungle Giants have had recently.

In the new video directed by Rosella Fragoso, The Jungle Giants’ front man Sam Hales and Renee are seen adventuring together through Mexico City.

On writing “Rakata,” Hales says:

’Rakata’ started as a fun experiment that turned into a pretty life changing journey for me. I had initially started the song with Spanish samples, that I would eventually change into English, but the song just sounded so much better as a bilingual thing. Meeting RENEE became just as special and gave the song so much more meaning. We clicked instantly and you can pretty much tell in the video, we’re just two new friends having an adventure.

Beginning in August, The Jungle Giants will set out on a headline North American tour. During the run, the band will join the lineup of San Francisco’s Outside Lands alongside Kendrick Lamar, Lana Del Rey and The 1975, and take the stages of San Diego’s BLEACHED Festival (an event delivered by the CRSSD Festival team). There will also be shows in Los Angeles, Phoenix, Denver and Vancouver, as well as New York.
