Clams Casino – “Ghost In A Kiss” (Feat. Future Islands’ Samuel T. Herring) Video
The great cloud-rap producer Clams Casino is putting out his major-label debut 32 Levels next week. Although Clams instrumentals are things of tremendous beauty on their own — see “Blast” — he’s enlisted a whole crew of big-name rappers and singers to provide guest vocals on the LP. We’ve already heard his collaborations with Lil B (“Witness“), Vince Staples (“All Nite“), and Kelela (“A Breath Away“), and now he’s shared “Ghost In A Kiss,” a new team-up with Future Islands frontman Samuel T. Herring. The song is excellent, with Herring rasping and muttering over a shadowy, shapeshifting Clams track, and the video from director Grant Singer is excellent too, a hugely evocative piece of work starring Herring as a man haunted by memory. Watch below.
32 Levels is out 7/15 on Columbia.
