With Surf seemingly nowhere in site, Social Experiment fans stormed Chance's Twitter last week, pleading the rapper to free them from their misery and drop the album already. Well, we still don't have a release date, though perhaps Chance took the hint, as he shared a new song, "Hiatus," today on his soundcloud. But he wasn't exactly forthcoming about it...
Chance tweeted the words "Hiatus broadcast" last night, and followed the mysterious tweet today by sharing the soundcloud link to "Home Studio," a Social Experiment song that was released over a year ago. Though the link still says "Home Studio," click play, and you will hear a brand new song, presumably called "Hiatus," the only text in the song's description.
It seems "Hiatus" will not appear on SURF, as the track finds Chance rapping over an instrumental by Australian neo-soul band Hiatus Kaiyote-- and no apparent contributions from Donnie Trumpet & co.
What do you think of Chance's secretive tactics? Is SURF on the horizon?
