Future Islands’ Sam Herring has announced his latest hip-hop endeavor: teaming up with Madlib for a project called Trouble Knows Me.
The two released the title track on SoundCloud, Consequence of Sound reported. It’s apparently the first release of “a self-titled 12-inch on September 1st featuring three instrumentals and three rap tracks.”
The horn-heavy, funky track under Herring’s verses provide a great preview for the album to come. Listen to the single below:
North Carolina-based Future Islands released the video for “A Song For Your Grandfathers,” a track off their 2014 record Singles, earlier this year. Madlib’s last release was his collab with Freddie Gibbs in 2014, titled Piñata.
