If You Return

Album: Maximum Balloon (2010)
  • This is a track from the self-titled debut solo album from producer and TV on the Radio guitarist Dave Sitek, which he recorded under the name of Maximum Balloon. The song features Little Dragon, an electronic music quartet based in Sweden who has also collaborated with Gorillaz. Sitek told The Guardian: "I've been friends with Little Dragon since they toured with TV On the Radio. They're the sweetest people I know. They came to stay with me in LA during a break from their last tour, and they started twisting this song around. When Yukimi added her vocals it became this magical thing. Like the rest of the sessions on this record, it was an unplanned event. You know how when people start a band they've usually designed their T-shirts before their first practice? I still haven't designed the Maximum Balloon T-shirt."
