Clams Casino – “A Breath Away” (Feat. Kelela)
Next month, Clams Casino, the great rap-production impressionist, will release 32 Levels, his major-label debut. The album pushes his sound to some fascinating places, and it includes a list of guests that ranges from A$AP Rocky to Future Islands frontman Samuel T. Herring. We’ve already posted “Witness,” with Lil B, and “All Nite,” with Vince Staples, as well as the instrumental “Blast.” Today, Clams has shared one of the album’s non-rap tracks. “A Breath Away” teams Clams up with the spaced-out R&B queen Kelela, and I honestly can’t imagine a more perfect combination. The song is beautiful and sad and longing, and you can hear it below, via NPR.
32 Levels is out 7/15 on Columbia.
