RL Grime & Miguel Team Up To Create Epic Future Bass Track "Stay For It"

RL Grime Miguel

Just days after announcing his new project, RL Grime has released the Miguel collaboration "Stay For it" as the second single. RL Grime sent a vine this week to select lucky fans that detailed the exciting new project, entitled Nova. This latest track follows up his recent single "Reims".

Referring to the new track, RL Grime said "It feels like the marriage of both of our sounds." The LA producer tones down the aggressiveness of his style, choosing to focus on the R&B singer's vocals and glitchy synths as he switches things up and surprises us with a Future Bass styled song. The combination works effortlessly as both artists bring stellar performances, producing a synergy that is unlike what they create apart. We can't wait to see this new chapter of RL Grime's career and will be looking forward to the new album on the way. Enjoy!

RL Grime Announces Upcoming ‘Nova’ Project, New Collab With Miguel, And New Music With Cryptic Magazine Sent To Fans

RL Grime Nova

Yesterday RL Grime surprised a lucky 100 fans with a zine sent directly to their homes, the likes of which is also available for purchase via his website. Titled “NovaZine 001,” the simple but articulate creation outlines a more detailed look into his development as an artist and announces a new project, Nova. He calls Nova "more than just an album, or a show, or a single narrative. I want the Nova project to create spaces wheer you can feel part of the process and support platforms for your own ideas."

For those not familiar with the term, a zine is a self-published, intimately circulated magazine that encompasses an artistic vision in a few short but sweet, usually black and white pages of work. Although zines found most of their underground fame in the punk rock world in the ‘90s, RL Grime’s decision to go old school with his album-announcement is refreshingly authentic and most definitely appreciated.

A post to imgur (some images below) shows the contents of “NovaZine 001,” although owning a copy for yourself is affordable at just $3 to buy online. Inside the zine, RL Grime discusses the origins of his project and a bit about his artistic journey. He also uses this opportunity to announce an upcoming collaboration with Miguel titled "Stay For It" and even included the transcript of a conversation the two had in their studio session.

“I’ve been lucky enough to travel the world off the things I’ve made, and the realization I’ve come to is this: From the artwork, to the music videos, to the live show; hearing the music is just a part of a much greater whole. The thing that unites it isn’t just RL Grime, it’s your experiences. For this next chapter, just like you’ve been with me to share the results of the process, this time I want to share the journey with you as well.” – Henry Steinway (RL Grime)

The official album announcement follows a huge few months for the artist, with hints about an upcoming project surfacing in November 2016 and the first single off that project, Reims, dropping just a few weeks ago. If this is any sign of what’s to come, it’s going to be quite the year for RL Grime. Scope some pics of the mag below, enjoy!

Towards the end of last year RL shared the exciting news with Triple J that he would be releasing his new album this year and touring around the project. This new track builds on the sound we’ve come to love from RL as we now have new music to hold us over a bit longer. “Reims” has an epic, cinematic intro that builds up with atmospheric melodies alongside rumbling basslines. The track takes off during the drop that combines shimmering synths, slashing melodies and well-placed vocal chops on the mystical track. Grab the free download below and enjoy!
