SBTRKT teamed with all sorts of intriguing musicians for his upcoming Wonder Where We Land; so far we’ve heard his collaborations with Ezra Koenig, Sampha, and Raury. “Voices In My Head,” the latest song Aaron Jerome has shared from the project, is a bleary trip-hop song (think “Rabbit In Your Headlights”) featuring A$AP Ferg doing his best Kid Cudi impression plus contributions from members of Warpaint. Like everything we’ve heard from this album so far, it’s unrepentantly weird. SBTRKT posted about the genesis of the song on SoundCloud:
heres another song from my upcoming album.
this track was started in London (with an idea i recorded on an upright piano) – took this to Los Angeles (set up at Fleas the Boat studio in Silver Lake) collaborating further with Stella (drums) & Emily (vocals) from Warpaint – took this back to london to work more arrangement ideas to it and finally a couple months later took that to New York (Downtown – The Roots were in the studio next door!) and collaborated with Ferg (out to our friend Callender for connecting us)
this is one of my fave tracks and seemed to be a fitting ending to the record too.
this started with me having a seed idea but seeing it grow way beyond that with these multi layers of collaboration and places. shout to ferg, stella and emily for their input!
