And that was simply the primary of their two collaborations for the Brit’s self-titled album (out September 13). Now, the dynamic duo is heading straight into the longer term on “2099.” They live-premiered the monitor throughout Go West Fest again in June. Right now (September 10), an official studio model adopted, and it’s one other severe banger. Produced by A.G. Prepare dinner and Ö, it’s simply probably the most experimental and forward-thinking track off the tracklist to date.
Opening with a burst of sharp and drill-like synths, the hitmakers are available collectively. “I pull up, roll up, fuck up. Quick like a Nascar. By no means contact us. Obtained visions, ranges. They don’t get me. Quiet, no discussions. Please hush,” they command on the opening traces. Because the track proceeds, the futurists solely get fiercer. “Obtained no cage,” they sing. “Wanna hear after I say, ‘assume I care in regards to the fame? Na, na, na, na.’” The top result’s but extra proof that they’re keen to buck no matter developments get between them and their craft.
And it solely will get higher. How so? Charli revealed that she and Troye recorded one other video. Contemplating that the one we acquired for “1999” was among the best of 2018, that is positive to be one other must-see. Not solely that, however she additionally confirmed that she shot one other “thinggg.” Some followers are speculating this might be for “White Mercedes.” Whereas we look forward to extra particulars (and depend down the hours, minutes and seconds till Charli arrives) press play on “2099.”
