2016 Polaris Prize winner Kaytranada shared a new collaboration with veteran vocalist Alicia Keys last night, called "Sweet F'in Love." The track finds the Haitian-Canadian producer working with a familiar pairing of lush smoothness and funky glitchiness, while Keys skillfully draws out variations on the track's titular phrase.

The tune doesn't really build toward anything, choosing instead to luxuriate in simmering sensuality. It follows Kaytranada's recent spaced-out collaboration with Chicago MC Mick Jenkins, "Aurora Borealis."

NYC producer Swizz Beatz, Keys' husband, shared "Sweet F'in Love" on his SoundCloud.

Kaytranada was recently announced as one of the many electronic acts to play Coachella 2017, alongside Radiohead, Justice, and more.
