SBTRKT’s new album, Wonder Where We Land, includes collaborations with Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig (“New Dorp.New York”), Sampha (“Temporary View”), Warpaint (“War Drums”), and Raury for (“Higher”). Today, he previews “Voices In My Head”, which features the talents of Warpaint and ASAP Ferg.
“Voices In My Head”, which serves as the album’s closing track, originated from an idea SBTRKT had while playing on an upright piano in London. After moving back to Los Angeles, he fleshed out the song by enlisting Warpaint’s Emily Kokal and Stella Mozgawa to provide background vocals and drums, respectively. The result is a looping, jazzy slow-burner, featuring a hypnotizing verse from Ferg.
In a statement, SBTRKT said, “This is one of my fave tracks and seemed to be a fitting ending to the record too.” After letting its hazy atmosphere soak in, it’s hard not to agree with him. Listen in below.
Wonder Where We Land arrives October 7th via Young Turks.
