In his recent interview with Billboard, Chance The Rapper revealed that he had been working on a lot of different projects, one of which is an album called Surf with his band the Social Experiment. The group — which is made up of Chance, Donnie Trumpet, Peter Cottontale, and Nate Fox — has shared the first track from that record, “Sunday Candy,” which is being released under the name Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment. The track features vocals from Jamila Woods and carries over Acid Rap’s deep appreciation for gospel and soul. Talking to Fader, Donnie Trumpet (real name: Nico Segal) said of the release: “We’re working on all this music together, but this project in particular is a Donnie Trumpet project. My music, with their influence and ideas, plus us all coming up with crazy shit to do. But at the end of the day, it’s my directing.” Listen and read some more words from Donnie Trumpet below.
This song specifically is a great representation of [The Social Experiment’s] collaborative efforts,” Segal explained. “It’s my curation, but then bringing it to the table with all these beautiful people and including them in their own way. Jamila sang on that hook, then I brought it to the collective. Peter added some great layers of texture and helped produce, Nate added a bunch of drums, tons of our friends from Chicago played instruments and added their ideas. […] I bring a musical side to what Chance is doing and he appreciates that and likes writing over it, so we make a good team
