Hear De La Soul's Hypnotic 'Drawn' With Little Dragon

De La Soul have unveiled the dreamy “Drawn,” the latest sampling off the group’s upcoming LP And the Anonymous Nobody…

“Drawn” surprisingly opens with a hypnotic, five-minute melody flush with strings and Little Dragon’s Yukimi Nagano’s coo before De La Soul finally appear over the track’s closing minute. On De La Soul’s Facebook, Nagano described “Drawn” as “a dreamy journey about not taking anything for granted in life. About love and being lost in something dangerously good.”

De La Soul member Kelvin “Posdnous” Mercer previously mentioned the experimental “Drawn” as an example of why they decided to crowd-fund their new album, raising over $600,000 from fans. “We couldn’t do that on a regular label,” the rapper said. “How you gonna present them with a song like this? They may think it’s beautiful but then it’s like, ‘Okay, so, there’s no chorus. For maybe the first three minutes of the record, you’re nowhere to be found.'”

“Drawn” follows previous Anonymous Nobody cuts like “Trainwreck,” “Royalty Capes” and the Snoop Dogg-featuring “Pain.” Besides Snoop and Little Dragon, the LP boasts an eclectic assortment of guest performers, from Talking Heads’ David Byrne, the Darkness’ Justin Hawkins and their Gorillaz buddy Damon Albarn to Usher, Pete Rock and Roc Marciano.

And the Anonymous Nobody… is out August 26th.
