Cosmo's Midnight team up with Forest Claudette for new single 'Borrowed Time'

Following on from their 80s disco sample flip in ‘Gimme Some More’, Cosmo’s Midnight return today with
their latest collaboration, ‘Borrowed Time’ featuring Forest Claudette.

With a knack for undeniably catchy basslines and anthemic synths, ‘Borrowed Time’ arrives today to chase
away the winter blues. Teaming up with ARIA Award winner, Forest Claudette, the track exudes an unbridled
joy and body moving rhythms that instantly get stuck in your head. Taking an optimistic view on a long-
distance relationship, ‘Borrowed Time’ sweetens the bitter reality that exists with long distance relationships
and instead, imagines the blissful reunion.

Cosmo’s Midnight on the single, “In a way, ‘Borrowed Time’ started out early last year, we were in our own
session doing our own thing and Forest Claudette was next door doing their own thing. Suddenly they bust
down the door without warning and tracked down some insane, one take vocals on a demo we were mid
writing. We were just blown away in that moment and knew we were gonna write a song together. We ended
up meeting in proper backstage at Ruel’s album tour and ended up talking real deep real quick, about long
distance relationships and the struggles that come with them. They ended up coming over to our house and
tracked the vocals in our kitchen. Although they haven’t sung over our style of music before, Forest glides over
this track with their effortless melodic and lyrical flow, as well as knack for storytelling and imagery, it was
such a pleasure to work with this beautiful human.”

Forest Claudette on the single, “‘Borrowed Time’ tells the story of how I met my partner and the long-
distance relationship that has followed. I’m so grateful to Pat and Cosmo for bringing me into their creative
world. It was a really warm and enjoyable collaboration, a nice long walk in the sun, writing from their home
studio and learning tricks on their toy switchblade. Listening back, I’m really proud of this record.”

‘Borrowed Time’ follows on from the duo’s recent single, ‘Gimme Some More’ feat. Shungudzo. Collectively,
these singles marked the first taste of new music since their 2022 singles ‘Bang My Line’ featuring Tkay
Maidza and ‘Can’t Do Without My Baby’. Prior to this, the pair released their ARIA-nominated sophomore
album Yesteryear, following on from their critically acclaimed debut album, What Comes Next. Additionally,
the duo have collaborated with artists such as KUČKA, BAYNK, Yung Bae and many more, culminating in a
whopping half a billion streams across their entire catalogue. Beyond their own music, the pair have worked
with an incredible line-up of talent, having produced for global superstars BTS on ‘Fly To My Room’ as well as
remixes for the likes of Flume, HONNE, Goldlink and more.

The transformative feeling that has permeated Cosmo’s Midnight’s music over the years has been reflected
in the growth of the duo as a performance unit; dominating sold out stages in Australia and overseas, as well
as staking their claim as Australian festival favourites with numerous appearances at the likes of Splendour In
The Grass, Laneway Festival and more.

Forest Claudette’s music is a comfort for the restless mind. Writing their first song at age 15, the now 24-
year-old powers through life’s growing pains with diaristic song writing—using their thoughtful take on
alternative R&B and pop to confront their place in this world. Their 2023 sophomore EP, Everything Was
Green earned them two ARIA Awards for Best Cover Art and Best Soul / R&B Release. An enigmatic and
passionate performer, Forest has supported the likes of Ruel and Lastlings, and graced the stages of
Splendour In The Grass, Yours and Owls.

Cosmo’s Midnight and Forest Claudette have effortlessly distilled their distinct sounds into ‘Borrowed Time’,
delivering a shimmering disco number. Stay tuned for more to come from Cosmo’s Midnight in 2024.
