On Tuesday, Tree will drop off his long-awaited follow-up to last year's @MCTREEG EP, theÂ Trap GeniusÂ tape. Having already shared a few cuts from the project, today the Chicago native liberatesÂ "New Or Leins / Training Day." It's produced by Seattle's always-phenomenal production duo Blue Sky Black Death.
At first glance, Tree's soul trap and BSBD's atmospheric, dark-hued sound may seem at odds, as Tree usually favors warm soul samples and BSBD's beat are usually colder than a witch tit. But even over some piano chords that sound straight out of "Donnie Darko," Tree sounds amazing. He inhabits the all-encompassing soundscape with ease.
Sorry I was truly captured
By the fading lights and cameras
Then she told me "ooh wee"
I never came back again
