In April, Chance the Rapper announced at a concert that Surf -- a collaborative project with Donnie Trumpet and the Social Experiment -- would be out within the week. Almost a month later, we've seen no sign of the long-promised album, but he's finally given us a taste of new music with the short but sweet track "Hiatus."
Chance sounds blissfully at home over the subtly funky instrumental, which opens with a playful scat and features a sample from Australian neo-soul band Hiatus Kaiyote. However, there's no indication that Donnie Trumpet was involved on the track, suggesting it may not end up on Surf after all.
Chance announced the new song with a simple tweet, writing, "Another broadcast from my home studio." He followed up with another tweet that read "Hiatus broadcast," before sharing a poetic verse from the lyrics: "I'm just a soul that borrowed the bod, I have no quarrel with God. Keep my eye on the sparrow until I'm sparring with Rod."
Keep your eyes peeled for Surf, presumably dropping any day now, and tide yourself over with "Hiatus" in the meantime.
