SBTRKT has never been shy about recruiting unusual collaborators—past features have seen him collaborate with artists as diverse as Drake, Yukimi Nagano and Sampha—but the UK beatsmith’s latest single involves one of his strangest bedfellows to date. On New Dorp, New York, Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig jumps aboard the headliner’s throbbing rhythm section to pay cryptic lyrical tribute to the Big Apple. An uncredited female vocalist adds a catchy call-and-response dynamic to the speak-sung verses. Feeling it? More awaits on SBTRKT’s Wonder Where We Land LP, scheduled for independent release on Tuesday, September 23.
