Last night, as The FADER reports, the former hair-whipper and current adult-confuser Willow Smith released a surprise album called Ardipithecus. On Instagram, she explains the name: “ARDIPITHECUS RAMIDUS> // the first hominid bones found on Earth (supposedly ;).” The first single is called “F Q-C #8,” and it’s a beatwise indie-rock song, basically. The first half sounds like Smith has been listening to Kate Bush lately, and the second half sounds like a jamie xx remix of the first half. It’s pretty good! Listen below.
Ardipithecus is out now on Roc Nation.
