Robert Glasper shares new song ft. Mac Miller, adds Halloween show with Thundercat to Blue Note residency
Robert Glasper releases the "Supreme Edition" of his recent album Black Radio III this Friday, October 14, via Loma Vista, and ahead of that he's shared one of the new songs, "Therapy pt.2" featuring the late Mac Miller. Of the collaboration, he says:
I was working with my friend. We were just finishing up this specific beat. I immediately sent it to him, and literally within an hour he sent me back that track. Everything was on there—both verses the choruses—and you could tell it was not something that he had written before. He sang the chord changes. You can tell he really came up with that in the moment.
The estate of Mac Miller added, "We're honored to support in sharing this beautiful song that Malcolm and Robert Glasper created together. The song is a reflection of the special friendship and musical gifts the two shared." The song is wonderfully laid back, full of clever rhymes set to a rolling acoustic beat. Listen below.
Black Radio III: Supreme Edition features nine additional tracks that feature BJ the Chicago Kid, Emily King, Estelle, India Arie, Bilal & Alex Isley, PJ Morton, Luke James, and more.Check out the tracklist for Black Radio III: Supreme Edition, below.
