If the Michael Bublé-assisted lead single off Styles of Beyond‘s next LP made you go ”Damn!”, then the latest song release will likely inspire you to shout “Shiver me timbers!” On The Pirate Song, Tak, Ryu and Vin Skully do their best impression of sea-bitten buccaneers—the bloodthirsty, liquor-swilling kind, not the cuddly Disney variety. Vin and Demigodz rapper/beatsmith Apathy co-produce the cut, layering an appropriately sea shanty-esque flute sample over heavily-syncopated, handclap-infused percussion as the crew deliver verses laden with piratical threats (“I’ll drown you qu**rs in Davy Jones’s Locker.”) and rum-soaked revelry. For this nautical banger and much more, check out Styles of Beyond’s Reseda Beach LP (Executive Produced by Mike Shinoda Linkin Park) when it hits store shelves and online retailers October 23, via Dirty Version Records.
