Yasiin Bey linked up with New Zealand soul group, Electric Wire Hustle, for “Marigolds” , which appears to be a one-off collaboration with the site, A Country Called Earth. Head over to A Country Called Earth to listen to the exclusive track.
Yasiin Bey is always creating in one form or another, and on occasion, the fruits of his creation are made public. “Marigolds” is a track recorded at Kenny Allen Studios in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The song was recorded in one take, using no overdubs, and is held together by a bass-driven instrumental from New Zealand soul band Electric Wire Hustle.
On “Marigolds”, Bey improvises what shapes up to be a beautiful, raw and cohesive ballad.
