ARIA Award winners Lime Cordiale have teamed up with British actor, writer, producer, rapper and singer-songwriter, Idris Elba to bring you Cordi Elba. Written alongside the duos longtime producer and co-writer David K Haddad, the mini-album is prefaced by their glistening new single, Apple Crumble.


The track brings the duos signature breezy sonics, with frontman Louis Leimbach's charming vocals complimenting Elba's easy-going flow. Lime Cordiale linked up with Elba whilst the actor was in town filming Marvel's latest blockbuster, Thor: Love and Thunder, enlisting him on a new version of Unnecessary Things. From there, a creative collaboration flourished and Cordi Elba came to be.



“We wrote everything together,” Oli says. “We were all writing lyrics – it wasn't our music or his music, it was smack bang down the middle with every lyric.” “I wanted to collaborate,” Elba adds. “We agreed about the vibe and the song was there. They were really open to ideas; it was an opportunity for me to write songs I normally wouldn’t write. Ultimately, this is a step into a new universe musically for me.”


The release arrives alongside an animated visual, directed and produced by Joe Neathway. “We only just managed to record everything we needed before Idris flew back to the UK", Oli says of the clip. “When it came to the music video, we decided to do it from afar. We took a range of photos and recruited Joe Neathway Brown to bring them to life. We’ve worked with Joe plenty of times but with this new collaboration, we decided to go with this different collage-style animation. This animation takes you into our minds and follows the story of our song Apple Crumble.”



Alongside the release comes the announcement of Lime Cordiale's rescheduled national headline tour. Kicking off in Perth on April 7, the run of shows will continue on to Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, following on from the duos extensive tour of the UK and Europe.


Cordi Elba is out January 14. Watch the visual for Apple Crumble below.
