GoldLink släpper första singeln inför kommande skiva



Den progressiva och experimentella DMV-artisten är aktuell med ny musik. Låten ”Zulu Screams” gästas av UK-producenten Maleek Berry och Def Jam-artisten Bibi Bourelly, där GoldLink presenterar oss för ett ljudlandskap med influenser från afrobeat. I en intervju med Beats 1 förklarar han uppkomsten av låten.


“It was actually the first song that I did for the upcoming album, and we knew it was special right away. We wanted to make sure like, ‘Who was the perfect person that we got?’ to take it to the next level and we were like, ‘Let’s try Maleek,’ and then Maleek was super down and he killed it, took it to another level.”


Låten sägs visa riktningen för det kommande albumet.


“I wouldn’t say it’s entirely what the whole kind of sonic of it is, but it’s a good intro for like a whole world building thing that I’m trying to like introduce. You know, after I kind of did my love letter to D.C. Kind of thing, I wanted to figure out what was the pulse, why I love my city so much and I think the answer wasn’t directly in the city. I think it was more so directly somewhere else. I’ve never had as much fun making a record because I think that I went about it… Like I never went to another place outside of D.C. to make a record.”
