English producer Tom Misch and drummer Yussef Dayes have released “What Kinda Music,” the title track from their forthcoming joint album.
The song dropped alongside an old-school video, which follows a young man as he makes his way through the subway. He later runs through a rapidly growing forest as the landscape starts to warp, before coming face-to-face with a dissolving dog.
“Yussef comes from a more experimental background, and he has a lot of loose, crazy ideas,” Misch said of their collaboration in a press statement. “I know how to write a catchy melody, but with interesting chords and I have a good understanding of popular song forms, so I think I streamlined those ideas and made them accessible.”
What Kinda Music arrives April 24 via Blue Note/Caroline Records. Watch the video for “What Kinda Music” below:
