The first piece of the highly anticipated joint album between Four Tet and Madlib has arrived. It’s a new single called “Road Of The Lonely Ones,” and it’s as lovely as we had hoped it to be.
We didn’t quite know what it expect when we imagined Four Tet and Madlib on the same original track, but this tune has a gentle hip-hop shuffle with a some equally buoyant sampling and acoustic guitar. This is some perfect morning music.
Four Tet announced in a post over yesterday that this joint album would in fact be a Madlib solo project that he lent his creative vision to. This is how Four Tet described in the post:
I put this concept to him when we were hanging out eating some nice food one day and we decided to work on this together with him sending me tracks, loops, ideas, and experiments that I could arrange, edit, manipulate, and combine. I was sent hundreds of pieces of music over a couple years stretch and during that time I put together this album with all the parts that fitted with my vision.
Four Tet also announced that the album would be coming out in January 2021. Check out the first single below and enjoy!
